Types of Camera Cards We Recover From
SD cards are one of the most popular compact memory card formats. They are found in a variety of electronics including phones, cameras and even portable gaming devices to provide extra storage space. The most common SD cards are the standard and micro SD sizes, but mini SD sized cards also exist. These cards are typically used to store music, videos, photos, etc. The Data Rescue Center can recover data from all SD card sizes for SD Card Recovery.
CF cards were one of the most successful memory card formats when flash storage became popular. They continue to be used today and are commonly found in professional camera devices such as Canon and Nikon. They use flash storage technology to store data on the small card and have no moving parts. CF Cards are known to be faster and more durable than other media cards on the market. The constant addition of new photos and videos that are added to the device creates a regular opportunity for data loss to occur, causing you to be in need of CF Card Recovery.
Common issues with digital camera cards that require our Professional SD Card Recovery Services or CF Card Recovery Services:
- Deleted or Reformatted - SD and CF cards can be accidentally or intentionally reformatted or pictures can be deleted during transfer or editing.

Frequently Asked Questions
I disconnected my SD card without ejecting it and now it does not show up. Can you recover the data?
Yes, ejecting a camera card too soon or experiencing a power outage can both cause firmware corruption or shorted components within the device. This is typically the cause of a SD Card/camera card no longer being recognized by a system.
Why does my SD/Camera card show the wrong drive size?
A SD Card or camera card displaying the wrong drive size is typically the result of firmware corruption within the controller chip. This is caused by improper drive ejection, a power-spike, or sudden power-loss.
