Is anyone else having massive failures with their Lexar CF cards. I've had a few cards have complete corruptions that lose all data and is not recoverable by any software, tekserve or even Lexars 8-12 week in house recovery. The card only shows 33MB in recovery. They have a great warranty program so everything is replaceable except for the lost work. I've been shooting small jpegs to second card slot, but still not satisfied with that solution.
Is anyone else having this error? Does it happen with Sandisk? Has anyone used the Raw Steel cards?
I think I'm going to switch completely this week. I've been slow to as I know sandisk have a worse warranty program. But if they don't fail then I won't need it.
Anyone else have the 33MB card failure? Could you recover anything? Does this happen with Sandisk?
I never used Lexar but it never happened with my Sandisk card. You can try more photo recovery software try some which could show you preview before purchase. One you can download from http://www.retrievephotos.com/ . If your data is very important and software could not help you can go for data recovery services but your card warranty will no longer be available after that.
