Hi all,
I was shooting some shots at my godson's B ball game. "Thank god it wasnt a real gig" I was using my Lexar Pro 300X 16GB CF card, shooting in RAW. Taking the pics and viewing them in the camera was fine. When I got home I put them into my Dell Studio PC,,,like I always do,, and the window came up and said "no new images on disc". I tried to import them and open them with LR4 and NX2, but the thumbnails were blank and if I tried to open any of them I would get "this type of file cannot be opened or read" I put the card back in my camera and it said "no images"
I then downloaded the trial of Lexars image rescue and sure enough it brought them up and several hundred other images I shot long ago. It would not let me rescue them unless I paid for the full version of the program. Does anyone have any opinions on the best image recovery software??? Most importantly why could this have happened??? Bad card??? or just a glitch?? Can't have this happen when I'm shooting a wedding or paying event!!

Thanks
Bill
