Camera Memory Card Common Problems:

Problems can arise with your memory card irrespective of how much care is taken with it. Even the most careful of user may experience loss of data through no fault of their own. The card may be snapped, broken or subjected to extreme temperatures or submerged in liquid. General wear and tear can cause the device to fail if the device has been overly used. Whatever the reasons we at have 15 years experience in recovering data from memory cards. So if your memory card should suddenly become inaccessible then you should make every attempt to keep the card safe and contact us soon as is possible.

Physical Camera Memory Card Failures:

Within a memory card you will find a small CPU, a flash memory chip, a write protect circuit as well as so-called floating gates and capacitors that allow the information to be stored once it has passed over a thin oxide layer. Physical damage to the circuitry may result in the card becoming unreadable but we here at can still recover the data using up to the minute technology and a wealth of knowledge at the fingertips of our experts.

Camera Memory Card Electronic Issues:

Power surges have been known as one of the factors leading to the destruction or malfunction of the electronics contained within a memory card. Many users tend to leave their memory card in the host device after use and as such find that it has been damaged because the host device has played host to high levels of electricity. This current passing through the host device can lead to the memory card being damaged in particular its thin oxide layer that passes through the floating gates inside the card. We at have extensive experience in recovering data from memory cards that have suffered electronic components damage.

Deleting the Card, or Formatting it by Accident:

Every memory card is fitted with a write-protect circuit. This device in the form of a chip is designed to prevent the erasure of information from your memory card but cannot stop the data being overwritten by the user. As such we receive requests from the general public as well as professionals who have pressed the wrong key or entered the wrong command. With the understanding that the data has not overwritten with new data or the memory card has not been reformatted there is a 99.9% success rate when it comes to us being able to retrieve your data.

Operating System Not Recognising Memory Card:

Have you recently inserted a memory card into your computer’s memory card reader only for the computer to freeze? If this is the case then there may well be an issue with the integrity of the memory card and as such you should have the data recovered. We are often asked to retrieve our clients’ data when their memory card has failed or caused a conflict with the operating system. If you have experienced similar problems then we recommend you contact us at your earliest convenience, making sure that the memory card has been removed from the computer in question and also making sure that the card is not used in any other computer.

Camera Data Recovery


I have a 16GB Sandisk memory card, which I have been using for about 6 months. It has rarely been used during that time, but I am having a problem in downloading files onto my Windows 7 computer. At the beginning, I had a Macbook Pro, and the pictures would download onto there with no problem. However, when I bought a Windows 7 computer, I moved all of my photo processing software onto that system. I plug the card into a card reader, and try to access the files by going into Disk Management, but the Windows 7 system will try to connect to the drive with the message ‘connecting to disk service’, and then that notice remains until I turn off the computer or remove the card from the reader. Once the card has been removed, I can then open up Disk Manager as usual. The problem is that I have a number of photographs on here that I want to download, and this inability to access the system folder means that I am not able to download those files, or see them in the computer. I need that data.


I have a 4GB memory card which I use in a digital camera. I have taken a number of important photographs and saved them to the card, mostly work-related items which are essential to my job. I have had no problem with the card for a while, but recently, it failed and the computer will not see it. The computer is reporting that the card has an error, but I can still view the pictures on the camera archives. I plug the card into a card reader, however, and I get a report from the computer which says that the drive in port J (the card), has a number of bad sectors. I am not able to open up the card, or see the pictures in any form except on the camera. As I can still see those pictures, I know that they are still on the card, and I am able to see them fine. However, the problem is that I am not able to download them to my work laptop. Without these pictures, my reports are worthless, and so I have get the data extracted from the card.
