 Images Big Sandisk Sd Card 512Mb
Chris writes –

Phil – The other day my sd card failed on my digital camera. After buying a new camera and card to replace my beater and the dead card, I decided to try to recover about three weeks of pictures from the card. After a little searching I found this great utility from It is a free, open source, file recovery application for flash memory. First it recovered all the files from my card. When I verified that they were saved onto the hard drive, the next day I used the utility to repair the FAT boot sector. I am so psyched that I recovered the files, and now I have a spare 2 gig card after replacing it with a 4 gig SD. I would definitely use this software again. I will try to remember to offload from the card more often….
