That'll be me ;o)) I have used
with great success several times on a Scan Disk flash memory card that
occasionally seizes up.
Easy to use, cheap to buy.
- who, upon the 14th of October, has an engagement on a ridge in Sussex.
There, sword in hand, he will do his best to turn away the Norman invader
but will inevitably die with his king.
Thanks Kim, that enabled me to find the original thread on google and
download the freebie that Martin P mentioned! Works too and, if only I could
work the new webshots uploading system (keeps telling me to try again
later), you could all see some pics of the Watermota 'Special K' which I
took last weekend.
Recovering flash memory sticks or cards of any kind in extreme damage
About flash memory
1) Some cards transfer data faster than others, so once you have taken
your images or photos and need to transfer them to a computer, the
faster speeds (80X, 100x, etc) move the images to other devices faster,
this is important as it saves time. Many people have digital image
recovery needs and issues when the data transfer takes to long and
something goes bump in the night during the transfer.
2) The higher the speed the faster the data is written after the image
is taken, faster cards save the data faster, so you can take the next
picture faster. Once again photo recovery is needed many times when
something goes wrong during the transfer of the data or the writing of
the data to the card as it is being taken, get a fast card to avoid
data recovery issues.
3) The most important part is this, buy from a big name. The bigger the
name the least shortcuts they take when it comes to electrical
engineering... meaning the parts they use such as crystals, capacitors,
NAND memory types to store data are of better quality and workmanship.
Find a press release we put out recently about this on a Google search
for "eprovided.com data recovery". Larger names are also easier to
recover data from if you do have issues as they are more common to find
parts for in extreme damage situations, such as when cards or USB
devices loose all connectivity, parts break, damaged connections, not
recognized in windows XP, etc. We see and recover from these issues all
the time, but avoid data recovery or image recovery by taking the
Any advanced issues with damaged internal devices (USB or any flash
