    SD Card corrupted, need to recover data...


    I have a 4GB Verbatim SD card that I used in my digital camera. Today, I realized that all the pictures that were there in the SD card are gone! When I try to see the pics in the camera itself, The camera says " No data in Image File". I connected the SD Card to my Desktop using a card reader but still, The folder which includes the images does not open. The error message says " J:\DCIM\108NIKON is not accessible. The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable."

    I have some really important pictures and data on the SD Card so i can't format. Neither can I risk data loss. I want to recover all the data from the card. Is there a way to do it? Please Help...

    I have used recuva to recover files

    Recuva - Undelete, Unerase, File and Disk Recovery - Free Download

    Even after a format, the deep scan can sometimes find files for you

    recuva' is not a bad choice since its free but i care data recovery offers more recovery options and have a better rate of recovery compared to recuva. but u have to pay for it

    Well... I did try Recuva... and the files could not be recovered... JPEG files of size 4 KB were saved but obviously, they are not the pics. The SD Card still shows space occupied so I guess they are not wiped off, but how can they be recovered? I'll see if I can get i care Data Recovery and see if it works...
    Thanks for the reply btw.. and if there is a better method, then please do tell. Any help will be appreciated.

    I had once faced this kind of situation. My friend had Stellar Phoenix Data Recovery Professional and he recovered the data for me. If you are ready to pay, I recommend this software.
