Some sort of copying error ocurred while copying Canon 7D video files from my 64GB extreme pro card to my computer using Mac OS 10.5.8 - I believe it was a finder crash after half the files had successfully copied across.
The computer will no longer recognize the card, nor will the camera - although I'd previously watched the clips on the camera.
I used the supplied Sandisk Recue Pro software and successfully retrieved and saved most files off the card. BUT, a few of the the files saved cannot be recognized as video files after recovery - it seems as if they are only partial files. It appears that the failed files are the longer video clips and that there may me a maximum file size for recovered files within rescue pro. Most of the failed files are 250MB exactly once saved on my hard drive which tells me that perhaps this is a file size limit.
Is there another great way of recovering files from this card?
I have not re-formatted the card or re-used it, and simply kept it aside until I can find a solution.
