This is why I recomended formating the card. If the card is currently seen as un-formatted, the machine will not even recognize that it is plugged in and the recovery software will not do anything. As I mentioned, a format is a last ditch activity. At least it can recover the card to a point where it becomes readable. Then you can try to recover. Sometimes it works and you'll get the images back and sometimes it doesn't. Do this when all else has failed. Once formatted there is no way to go back.

Which is why I recommended the Testdisk / Photorec suite. They are able to bypass the partition table and grab the data directly, no formatting required.

I will def try that tomorrow. Just frustrating I had a Sandisk that was fine and went with the Lexars because they were 1000x and I got them on sale. Makes me nervous to trust them again.

I got burned with Lexar a while ago which is why at least for my Canon cameras I use SanDisk only. The Lexars would loose images or corrupt images in the Canon cameras only. Never lost one in the Nikons.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

I would give Testdisk / Photorec a shot as well.

Well I owe you a huge one man that Photorec worked. It said it recovered every image but unfortunately it wasn't able to fully recover all of them as several were missing part of the image but I was at least able to get a couple that I could work with.

^ good result - did you need to resort to formatting the card before running Photorec?


some fairly old canon camera stuff, canon lenses, Manfrotto "thingy", 1D MK II converted for IR, and now an M5

Just an update ran the software a 2nd time and it wasn't any more successful than the first. I then attempted to delete all and format but was unable to. Card is completely worthless. I'm gonna give them a call but unfortunately I really don't want a replacement as it's hard to put the trust in. I have the other one I purchased in my bag but will be sticking with Sandisk.
