CF fallen on hard ground

What could i try to retrive pictures in a CF card  that fell on hard ground. The card does not appear on the desk of my Mac  or in hard drive utility . It cannot been red or written  or formated by the camera  anymore…

few ideas? 

Move to someplace that has softer ground. :stuck_out_tongue:

Just kidding, there’s no shortage of photo or file recovery software programs out there; some of them are free, some of them cost. But remember. you usually get what you pay for. Depending on how important those photos are to you, you may want to take or send the card to a professional file recovery service.


The point is that i cannot try any recovery software since the card does NOT appear…

Might want to call in the pros then. They’ll probably format the card somehow, then revover what is recoverable before it is written to again.

problem:i do not know any professional file recovery service in France (i’m living in Paris). Since these files are quite important, i could send the card abroad for that…Where?
