hi

Engineer1010 :

Hello,

Engineer1010 :

What is the make / brand and capacity of the card.

Engineer1010 :

How and when did this problem happen ? ... Were you trying to do something with the card ?

Engineer1010 :

How do you know that its corrupt ?

Customer:

Fujifilm xd-picture card H1GB

Customer:

can not read, says it needs formatting

Engineer1010 :

Do you get this message on camera screen ?

Customer:

yes and also on TP

Engineer1010 :

what is TP ?

Customer:

Thinkpad

Engineer1010 :

How did you connect the card to Thinkpad ?

Customer:

usins a xd picture card reader

Engineer1010 :

What is OS installed on the Thinkpad

Customer:

Windows 7

Engineer1010 :

Operating System ? ... windows version ?

Engineer1010 :

Okay so you mean that the TP can detect the card ... but not read it ?

Customer:

get an error which says does not contain recognised file system, please make sure all file system drivers are loaded and volume is not corrupt. Yes it can not read it

Engineer1010 :

Have you tried any recovery tools ?

Customer:

nope

Customer:

need your recommendation

Engineer1010 :

Would you like me to suggest you a recovery tool (software). In most cases, if its not internal physical damage then the tool can recovery most of the data in the card

Engineer1010 :

Please hold on a minute.

Engineer1010 :

You should use this Free tool called Pandora : http://download.cnet.com/Pandora-Recovery/3000-2094_4-10694796.html?tag=mncol

Customer:

Ok, I will give it a try

Engineer1010 :

Apart from these two there are many more Free ones available on internet (search google : XD card data recovery). You can try some more if above two don't work. Just to give it a shot

Engineer1010 :

If none of these work, then I am very sorry but the card is corrupted beyond limit and data cannot be retrieved from it.

Engineer1010 :

The next step would be to send the card to a professional data recovery company who will charge you high.

Engineer1010 :

If your data is that much critical, let me know and I will get you details on that as well.

Engineer1010 :

One such data recovery company is this : http://www.drivesaversdatarecovery.com/devices-supported/digital-cameras/
