Re: Need help/advice - salvaging RAW photos from a damaged SDHC card

If you have not tried cleaning the contacts on the card, you could do that, trying not to create any static charge while doing so. You might also move the lock/unlock switch on the side back and forth a few times. If you put the card in a card reader and the pc does not recognize a card as having been inserted you are likely out of luck. Software will only work to recover files on the card if it can detect the card and read information from it. If the computer does not see a card it will not be able to read the data on the card. Some one in an online forum suggested then trying the card and reader in a computer running a different operating system, a mac if you use a pc, linux or some other operating system if you have a pc. There are companies that do data recovery for clients but they tend to charge very large sums of money for companies that can not afford to lose data.

Good luck.
