New techniques for camera card photo recovery

Over the past 2 or 3 months, we have made exciting steps forward in the recovery of camera cards where the card itself has failed, or has been physically damaged.

In the past, there have been cases where the cards have simply not responded to any attempts to read them, and although we have had techniques for reading from the memory chip directly, the success rates have been disappointing.

Since the end of 2010, we now have new technology which enables us to recover data and photos from almost every type of camera card, by removing the memory chip and accessing this directly.  It is a complex and time-consuming task, and we cannot recover every card we receive because in some cases the chip itself may be damaged or malfunctioning.  However, we are now seeing greatly improved success rates for all types of camera card, where physical recovery is required.

The cost of this type of recovery is significantly higher than for recoveries which can be achieved without opening up the card, so please contact us if you would like more information on these techniques for photo recovery.
