Angry any advice on a broken memory card?

Hey photographers,
I recently went backpacking around Europe with a friend and my Fuji FinePix S2950. I took thousands of photos, many of which I was hugely happy with. Unfortunately, upon my return I discovered the 4gig SD Card had become corrupted. Can any suggest a cheap and easy way for me to get my photos back? Im sure many of you feel my pain!

Thanks a lot, Max x

Hi Max,

If you do a search on Google for 'recovering images from corrupt card' you'll find a lot of options. I've not experienced the problem so can't say how effective any of them are. Good luck in retrieving the photos.

Default recovery software

Usually the files can be recovered with recuva (free)...

Keep us informed!

Max, were you able to solve this already?

I had the same problem and i agree with siolaw, i downloaded Recuva, installed it on my PC, filtered the category, and voila! recovered some of my files. However, I have the files opened through that same PC from my memory card. I doubt your files will be recovered if they weren't opened on the PC where you will install and use the software.

firstly you should find why the problem was occured? Is it broken physical or software problem..if the software, you can try to recover with virus(2) or recovery program (1) not else you should askcard of manufecturer (technic service etc.)
