    Default [How to]Fix and Retrieve Images form an error sdcard (USBC error)


    2 days ago I went to another cities and had some fun with my friend. It was raining very hard and we transferred our photos from the sdcard to PC. Suddenly the power went off and we were shocked. Our datas were definitely corrupted.

    After several hours, yes, the data were corrupted. We can still see the DCIM and VIDEO folder but inside DCIM, the images were converted to unknown 3 files and one of them was 'USBC◘╧◘' the unreadable characters are shaped like a gun..

    I didn't bring my laptop to try open it from mac. So we were using windows. This is how we fix it :
    1. Open run (windows+R)
    2. Open command prompt (type : cmd)
    3. On the open box type -> chkdsk (space) [the drive]: (space) /f
    example (your sdcard is on drive K:) -> chkdsk k: /f
    4. It will say that it's being repaired , after that
    5. Copy all files inside DCIM folder to your PC

    you will find many files with FILE00XXX.CHK format. If your images are all JPEG, you can just change the .CHK file type into .JPG

    But if you have the RAW file, it will be hard, because you don't know which one is the JPG/RAW file.

    So you need to download this : http://www.ericphelps.com/uncheck/unchk3.zip

    It will automatically change the files into JPGs and you change another .CHK files that haven't changed by the program into your RAW file format (Olympus = .ORF , etc)

    Example :
    There are 4 .CHK files :
    FILE0001.CHK
    FILE0002.CHK
    FILE0003.CHK
    FILE0004.CHK

    if the result =
    FILE0001.CHK
    FILE0001.JPG
    FILE0002.CHK
    FILE0003.CHK
    FILE0003.JPG
    FILE0004.CHK

    then the file002 and file004 is RAW

    Hope this helps and don't be afraid when you have this problem!

    160KB in 5 folders

    I did the above, but now all I have is a file with NO pictures. How can I open it (one) and two did I lose all my pictures? I am desperate to make sure I find these!

    First you have to understand the situation. If the card is corrupted, all the files are actually not lost. They are there somewhere. Chkdsk will restore the file and unchk will convert the file into jpeg format.

    If you didn't see any file , try to open the sdcard disk with 7zip file manager. It can see hidden files. To see wether is there any data occupying your sdcard, check your disk properties. If there anything that said "xx MB used" , that means there is something inside.

    One reason I use Sandisk cards is that each one comes with RescuePro software. This bit of software is so good, that once I formatted a card that I thought had downloaded onto my PC but hadn't (I'm not exactly sure what happened) and RescuePro was able to recover all the files. It's done the same when I've had cards go corrupt. It's worth buying a Sandisk card just to get this software.

    To anyone with a corrupt disk:

    If the data (pictures, videos, whatever) is critical, the last thing you should be doing is running any tool that will modify the filesystem (including chkdsk).
    If the disk/card is having a hardware problem, you risk making things much worse.

    A true Data Recovery tool will not make any changes to the disk/card's filesystem/files; it will just copy the files to another drive.
    (the SanDisk tool may qualify, but I have not used it.)
