I shot about 130 jpegs last week and had to recover all of them with image recovery software. The problem is there's only about 30 of them that are usable. The rest are color banded, half gray, or just not recognizable.
I've got to figure this out pretty quick or schedule a reshoot.
Is there any reputable software anyone could recommend?

Do you have your software set to erase the card during/after reading? I don't do that. Sometimes I even enable the write protection tab on the card. I then treat the card as a backup until I have made a backup some other way.

Peter, that’s a darn good suggestion that never crossed my mind, thanks for posting it.
And Mike, I have also had my PC freeze on me when I was using Windows Explorer to transfer the images off the card. But before I powered down or soft-reset my PC I removed the reader from the USB port and never experienced what you have.
Perhaps you did do that, but just in case I thought I would mention it for future reference.

I have a similar problem that I don't know how to fix either. I got all of the images off the card but when I went to open them every one of them were thumbnail size and I don't know how in the world I managed to save them that way but is there anyway to undo it? thanks!
