Soooo my SD stick became corrupted??? & my camera or computer would no longer read it. Now, normally I would just re-format the card or erase card through “disk utility” (mac) & start over . . . . but I had images on the camera that I needed!!!! Through”disk utility” I tried to repair the drive – but it was shaded out and wouldn’t recognize it. I thought maybe my PC will read the card, through the control panel – No.
I called a few places that did disk recovery – thinking, it’s only a memory stick . . . . maybe $20??? No the first place wanted $89 just to look at it. Then they would send it over to a lab and then call me if they needed more. The seconded started at $199 – 349. UGGGG!!! – I knew I only had aprox 100 images. so that was not worth it to me.
So I searched google . . . .
I found this guys site “http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/” – full of amazing advice on fixing memory stick, camera repair, disk recovery etc… He share info on the freeware “Photo-Rec” (for mac) and download – – –
1 hour later – – – YES!!!! It worked great!!!
