Alright, so I had 2 memory cards of my wedding. I was sitting on the couch and had one plugged into my laptop and was transferring the photos with the second card on the cushion next to me. Well my 5 month old pup snuck up next to me, snagged the card and made a dash for it. By the time I caught her, the case was broken but the actual chip wasn't too bad. Is there anything that I could do or anywhere I could send it that could get the photos off of it? Any ideas will help.

Can you tape it into approximately original form and try reading it that way? Otherwise, you'll need to get a data recovery shop to handle it. Not cheap, but . . .

yes, but they will charge you quite a bit. my brother-in-law had to pay over $1000 to have his photos recovered from a hard drive that failed badly.

Do you know what site it could be sent to? I've looked and just need to look at some pricing. Got married at the outer banks and there are some pics that (obviously) cant be replaced.

The casing is done, but the actual "working" part of the card is fairly intact (minor bending).

This may sound crazy, but what about disassembling a spare card, and putting the chip from the dog toy into it? Just a thought...

it looks like you have an SD card? if it's the 'chip' part with the gold connectors on it, have you tried taping that down to an external SD card reader? with an external reader you'll have better access to plug it in

or as other's have said, find an old SD card and pop out the chip and tape it back together.

but keep in mind even if the chip looks ok, it could still be chewed up and you can't tell. so don't get your hopes too high

I'd send it to an expert. Good grief! This is like your dog ate your homework. Good luck!
