i'm actually recovering some raws right now i accidently deleted one i didnt want to on the weekend
Hopefully, they are still there. I recovered a few from my Windows recycle bin yesterday, but have had good luck with CF cards. I have at least a dozen, and none have failed since I bought my first CF cards in 1997 or 1998.
However, I sold my almost new Canon 30D a few years back to a lady and included a starter card which was fine, but as soon as she inserted her own card in the camera, it burned the camera out. Turns out, she was replacing her old DSLR which had done the same with that card inserted. Fortunately, Canon fixed it up at no charge when she took it to the dealer with my original invoice.
yep got it thanks all 705 raw files came off the card no problems (it did take it 1n hour and 45 mins though)
