RE: Recover Photos from XD card - Olympus camera

Well Jessops were nigh on useless other than eventually tellng me the Snappy Snaps in Kingston did offer a service (but only when I pressed them to give me any recommendations did he grudgingly walk off to try and find out).

The fella in Snappy Snaps on the other hand was incredibly helpful - he managed to get 27 photos off through their kiosk machine alone (which was more than I could do so is at least something), then plugged them into the Mac and PC, got the same result as I did but went through what might have gone wrong and is now going to try and get the rest off (no promises, but he seemed hopeful) so we'll know by next Tuesday how he's done.

The best result of the day was discovering the service in Snappy Snaps (which I'd ignored up till now) - everyone in the shop was far friendlier and more helpful compared to the glum faces in Jessops. I'll certainly be taking my business to Snappy Snaps from now on, whatever the result  :clap:

Back when I was a regular film phographer, I often sent off my films to Snappy Snaps. They were superb. Glad to read that they have maintained their standards.

Brilliant! Ah well I suppose Jessops at least pointed you in the right direction.  Bit poor that they couldn't do it for you though.  It must vary from shop to shop because my local branch are quite good.

Found it!

RescuePro from lc-tech.com if they still exist

I notice that Sandisk now provide something called RescuePro. Don't know if it's the same thing though...

 

Scratch that, just found the website and it is the same program that Sandisk now use

 

Hope it helps, as I say it saved me a whole lot of grief although I seem to recall we had to go through the "rescued" files and re-name them and put them back into order

RE: Recover Photos from XD card - Olympus camera

I am very sorry to hear the problem you met. Maybe it is a little late to answer this question, but I still want to share some of my experiences. Last week, I accidentally formatted my Olympus camera's memory card and lost all the media files. I have tried a lot of data recovery software, here is some of my experiences: 

(1) If you only want to recover pictures, you do not need comprehensive data recovery software, you only need a professional picture recovery software (much cheaper). 

(2) Do not purchase any data recovery software unless it has found the missing pictures. In other words, first try it, then pay for it. 

(3) Before performing Olympus photo recovery, you'd better carefully read "supported file formats", "supported storage devices" and “precautions”.

Best wishes!
