Corrupt Cf Express

Hey Guys i had an issue with my CF express card that i just brought 2 weeks ago…

I filmed a wedding and came to back the footage up and it only gave me an option of formating the card so assumed the card is corrupt … So i ejected it and sent it straight to data recovery and they are saying that its not recoverable because the controller is dead.

And that that its an encrypted controller?? Which i am very confused about…

I Really need some help with this as my heart is starting to drop knowing i have lost my clients from a faulty card…

Can you please help me and guide me in the rite way

Cheers Pierre

Hi @Pieree,

We regret to inform you that the SanDisk® warranty does NOT provide for data recovery or reimbursement for data recovery services. The SanDisk® warranty covers the product itself, but does not cover any damages (monetary loss claims) due to data loss.

If your memory card or flash drive is no longer functional or cannot be accessed by your computer, then you will need to send it to a data recovery company. They will attempt to recover data on your memory card or flash drive. We recommend LC Technologies for this. LC Technologies specializes in SanDisk® products.

Please refer to LC Technology Data Recovery for service description and current pricing.
