RMA it you've obviously got one from the faulty batch, as for your data the only real option for recovery is to give it to a specialist company who'll charge you the earth. But try sticking your card in the freezer over night that may allow you to access it and retrieve the data, bear in mind that cards do fail sometimes and if your data is important keep it backed up.

I had a similar issue with a memory card that my wife and I used during our trip to Africa. During one of our safari drives, the card stopped working and was no longer recognized by the camera or computer. As such, there wasn't really any way to use the widely available recover software. Stupidly, we hadn't backed-up our photos from the first three days of our trip so we thought our photos were lost. Luckily, I found a guy in Germany who uses a special technique to recover the files (http://recoverfab.com). You can watch a youtube video on the technique, if interested. I highly recommend the service as it was fast and effective.

Hi there, I solved this problem by buying a card reader that has it's own power supply. Now I never have this problem. The power supply from a laptop or other mobile devices just isn't sufficient and eventually my computer would stop detecting all of my CF cards. It is a drag to carry around more cables and devices, but not as much as waiting for the computer to recognize the CF or the external hard drive.

Contact SanDisk directly and open an RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) to get a replacement.
