p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · CF card fell - Camera/computer don't recognize it


(Asking for a friend)

My friend dropped a SanDisk 8Gb CF card with most of the wedding pictures on it
It fell from about 6 ft high,
Now the camera and computer to not recognize the card (Card err on the camera).

Obviously the card isn't impotent - we need the pictures!

We sent the card to a local and well known data recovery company here in Israel - Tictac, but after two weeks they gave up and weren't able to recover anything

I called SanDisk, they sent me to a company called 'LC tech'

Anyone have experience with this company?
Was anyone able to recover pictures from this kind of damage before?
Any other idea's?


Thanks
YItzy

P.S. wish we had a 2 sloted 5D3 before

If they can recover the 8GB for $175.00 posted that is a deal.
They mention Sandisc so that could be a specialty.

When I shot weddings I would only shoot with 1 series since they had 2 card slots. The cards never came out of the camera till I got home. People told me I was crazy not to change cards, and I didn't need dual slots.

Bah, humbug! Sorry this happened though.

Although I can't offer any help, and I'm sorry for your friend's trouble...However, really I'm curious to know an update on this story. I know nothing is indestructable but I've always thought of CF cards as very nearly so. I've dropped plenty of CF cards over the years (even put a couple through some washing machines too) but I've never had one stop working on me.

My friend is out of luck

We sent the card to 'LC Technology', this is there response:

"Hello ****,

As it turns out, we are unable to read one of the two memory chips in your CF card. Because the data is split between the chips, nothing can be recovered. We will return the card.


Best Regards,
Ray ****
LC Technology "

"Is there any chance of saving anything?

**** (my friend) "

"No. All we get are fragments of data.
- LC Technology"

Ouch!!

I had a SD card fail on me on an assignment in a new 1D camera, I thought I had set the thing up to write to both cards - but no
So I feel for your friend.

Bit of bad luck there.

I too have dropped endless cards and had one in my pocket go in the sea, and was then washed, hot tumbled dry and ironed till it was too hot to touch when my wife finally discovered what that funny crease was that wouldn't go away.
That was years ago and I used the card for the 100th time since that happened again yesterday and as always, works perfect.

Very unfortunate about the pictures but I guess sometimes these things happen.
It may or may not have been the drop that killed the card so I hope your friend isn't beating himself up about that too much.
