Retrieving photo's from SDHC card

  Trepan 19:30 08 Jan 2014

After many aborted attempts to retrieve some 475 photos from an 8gb sdhc card which has become (?)corrupted I have downloaded the free demo version of ZAR 9.2 as recommended in this publication and it has now been running for 5.5hrs completing just 39% of the scan "Volume analysis" and all the signs on the "Volume Map" are in red = "Bad Sectors"- so some help as seems it is going to take another 8 hours just to do this so does that sound acceptable?

What happens after all this has been done?

We have managed to download to the PC about 50% of the photo's the others are either blank or are showing only a % of the actual photo. The strange thing is that all of the photo's (thumb nails)can be viewed on the camera's screen - Nikon D40 and I should say it took over 2 hours to do that when normally on my PC it takes no more than 2/3 mins.

Morgen123 - thank you for your response but I did try that software and it failed suffice to say I gave up and removed it completely from my PC.

However the matter has been resolved - I took the card to a company recommended to me who specialize in (forensic) data recovery. The card was so badly corrupted that only 40% of the photo's were recoverable many had 2/3rds of the picture missing and many more just blank.

So thank you one and all for your help in this matter I did appreciate the response.
