Lexar 800x card failed
Jane Tyska, Photographer
Oakland | CA | USA | Posted: 6:02 PM on 06.12.13
->> I'm trying not to panic. Shot all morning at UCSF on a story I've been working on for 9 months, including in the OR, not stuff I can re-shoot. Card failed, not read in camera or on computer. Tried Image Rescue 4, then 3 upon suggestion of Lexar tech. Also tried Photo Rescue, it ran for an hour and a half and the data numbers were going up like a slot maching in Vegas but then the program quit. Trying Disk Drill now. Any other suggestions? I lost some really valuable stuff, including video footage. Sick to my stomach. Third time a Lexar card failed on me. I think Sandisk is the way to go. Tech says watch out for low camera batteries when shooting and also format the card on the computer, not in the camera. Never heard that one before. Thanks so much for any help.

->> Jane,

I really hope things work out for you and your project. I truly feel bad.

I've never heard too many recoveries from a corrupt Lexar card, but you'd have to seek out a pro and because they are flash based it's usually toast because unlike spinning HD, once the space in the card is corrupt, it is entirely corrupt.

I had a spinning drive that arm didn't work but the stored data was still there. I had a data recovery place pull the platter out and recover the drive.

I used this company in the past. See if they might help over the phone first...

Best,

C

->> How many failed Sandisk threads are there? Ya, that's what I thought. Slowly getting rid of all my Lexar's. Using a Lexar in a D4 is like driving a Jaguar with a tire that has a nail in it. It might not fail today, but you know it is going to fail eventually.

->> Thanks Corey and Mike. Corey, you're forgiven, I'm not a grudge-holder. Lol! I'll try them Mike...was going to drive down to Lexar in Fremont, CA tomorrow as well. There's a tech there that may be able to help.
