Hi, everybody.

I know that freeware is available (e.g. Piriform Recuva and others) which is said to be able to retrieve files from re-formatted CF cards, but I am not having any luck getting it to work out for me. Approx 2GB of photo files were accidentally deleted and then the recycle bin was emptied. I already tried to retrieve the files from the PC with data recovery freeware, but apparantly the files were already overwritten and are no longer retrievable. So I want to try to get them from my now-blank memory card.

I have a D300 with a SunDisk 4GB CF card which I re-formatted after uploading approx 2GB of photos into my PC last week. The card is now blank, but the data is said to be retrievable with appropriate software. I cannot find info in the freeware manuals to indicate whether I can get the thing to work by attaching my camera containing the CF card to the computer via the USB cable or whether I need to place the card in some other device.

Can anyone help me with trying to retrieve the most recently captured images from this re-formatted card? Perhaps there is a better program or method for doing so.

Thanks,

Peter
