I have just arrived back from a big family wedding and have tried to open the disk to down load the images.
Around 200 Raw files on a two gig compact disk taken on a Minota 7d.
The normal file is there when you call the disk up. But it only has 40 pics in it.
All the other files are listed in seperate folders that are unreadable. The file names are all in symbol format.
When you try and run the normal file, you get a runtime error.
I have managed to call down the 40 pictures which 8 of them are unreadable.
Has anyone seen this before?
Dose anyone have any idear of how to copy the unreadable files.
Your help is realy appreciated as these are very important pictures of people that will never be together again.
Thank you in advance.

Did your compact flash card come with any image recovery software? If not, I think that there are some free versions available - try Google. Have a look at some of the older threads on here, as other people have had the same problem.
What compact flash are you using? I have some free image recovery software from Lexar I can send you if it helps?
Sorry to hear about your problems Paul.
Try Here for some recovery software.
PC Inspector File Recovery works well.
I managed to delete all the images on my flash disk and ended up using Image Recall from http://www.flashfixers.com/ recovered some images i had taken ages ago too and had long formated the drive after. Strangely it seemed to semi-recover the thumbnails of a few images i know i never took and dont remember lending the camera nor the card to anyone very odd. Went with image recall as it is designed to look for specific file types that cameras use.
I have managed to rescue all bar 8 pictures.
A programe called PC inspector.
Thank you all for your help.
