I tried Zar and was not so lucky it only found some of the images and the file size was wrong.

I have never had to use it myself, so I wasn't sure of the capabilities. Just figured it wouldn't hurt to try. I'm not sure what can be done for corrupted image files, but maybe someone else will have an idea.

I hope so too! Everything else works
Music and Videos work fine just the photos don't view

Hey 1EYEDWILLIE,

Thanks for the program but it has all ready been listed and tried.

Hey Forz19,

Thanks so much for your links!
But sadly none of them worked for me (The links work fine I was talking program wise)

I don't understand why my images are corrupt like this when I recovered them the program said the images were fine and not overwritten or anything like that.

If anyone else has any ideas please I would love to hear them. I really need the files.

If you're tempted to use one of the online recovery services -- be very wary! I had some videos trashed (family vacation videos), and I found an online service that, if you sent the videos to them, they would recover 30 seconds of each one for free. Then, once you viewed the free ones, you paid them to recover the rest of the data.

I made the mistake of doing that and paid nearly $80 for NOTHING! My guess is that, whatever happens, the first 30 seconds or so of a video is probably always OK -- its the remainder that gets corrupted. The so-called "fixed" versions were no better than the corrupted originals.

Jumanji Your Awesome! I did what you said and I tried PhotoRec and followed that link waited 8 hours
But in the end it was worth it! Thanks to you I got every photo back ! And there is no errors or nothing, Thank you so much Jumanji you have really helped me out


Makes me think how company's out there ask for $50-$90 for recovery software which fails and this PhotoRec is free and did the job!


Also thanks to everyone else who helped me! I was about to give up hope.

I hear you Mark I was going to give up and try this but the company asked for $60 per 10 photos :l And with my budget I won't get far. Give PhotoRec a try?
