My computer ate my camera card! It's the second time of happening and, yes, I did change the card after the first instance in case that was at fault. Both times it happened I'd taken world beating shots, of course, and had reviewed most of them in camera. When I pulled the card(s) and stuffed them in the reader, the computer "saw" the files and I even looked at a few of them before opting to move them to a folder. And that's when the rot set in. Half way through the process, or earlier, who watches these things, it all fell over, legs in the air. Nothing on the card and bugger all in the folder. Gone. Recovery program failed to even find anything other than some old jpegs taken by the previous owner. So, it's the card, or the reader, or the computer, or the lead, or the USB port. Or all three (sigh). I dunno. Still, this morning's efforts came over just fine. None of them up to the standard of those I've lost of course. Maybe I should take up bird watching, there's plenty of gulls about.
