Hopefully this is the proper forum for this. It's relating to videos, so figured I'd post it here.
Was filming a concert on Friday night. Canon T4i with Magic Lantern installed. PNY 256GB SD card (which I've been using for about a month with no issues).
Formatted the card before the show, leaving ML in tact. Made 3 separate recordings, about an hour each (technically 6-7 recordings if you count the ML auto-restarts).
Came home and got the dreaded "You need to format the disk in drive X before using it" message (Windows 7, 64-bit) when inserting my SD card reader. The camera is now also unable to read the card when I insert it.
Nothing has been written to or deleted from the card since. I have not performed any kind of format since this happened.
I've tried two different data recovery programs (Recuva and RASEUS Data Recovery Wizard), but I don't see the files from Friday night on either. Recuva pulled a bunch of older/deleted files for me, but nothing that I'm looking for. It showed a few of the .DAT files from Friday when it scanned, but said they were overwritten by the respective .MOV files in X:\DCIM\100CANON\, but nothing I've tried so far has been able to show me/access those files.
Does anyone have any recommendations as to how I can access these files? It seems crazy that none of the recorded files would be accessible. Not sure what happened here, but this is going to be an enormous bummer if I can't get these back.
Thanks in advance.
