Please say there is hope!

I just came back with over a hundred pictures... and when I try to open them in photoshop I get "Invalid second SOI or SOFn marker is found" error. windows won't open them either. Bridge (which came bundled with PS 9) recongnizes the pictures just fine - it displayes the pic, its info and the such. Any ideas on what I can do to open these files??? Please?

thank you, Airdale

Re: Please say there is hope!

If these were taken with a digital camera, try using the View / Import software that came with the camera to export the image (i.e. for a Nikon, use Nikon View). Rather than connecting the camera to your computer, try plugging the memory card into a card reader plugged into your USB port.
Good luck,
Regards, Murray

Re: Please say there is hope!

The camera is a canon and I no longer have the original software. I have always simply plugged the compact flash card into card reader and into the computer. That is what i did this time as well. Here was an oddity though - after copying the files to my harddrive, I restarted the computer (thinking that maybe the lack of opening is a bug that will go away at restart). i had not taken the card out of the computer. As windows was restarting it told me that it was fixing some errors.... it deleated all the images on the card!

There is software to recover deleted pictures off you card.
This is but one..
http://www.cardrecovery.com/?rid=google&kid=cr2101

I would recommend that you do not take any more pictures until you have tried one of the recover softwares.

I used one years ago..it actually scared me. It found 160 images on a erased card.

Lasa - you are a life saver. Card recovery retrieved (and corrected the corruption) on about 70% of my pictures. I am a MUCH happier camper now. Thank you again. Airdale

Hi Airdale

Here is another recovery program (and it's free)
I have heard good reports of this and would be interested to know how it goes

Ken, I tested out http://www.recuva.com/download. It did not find a single file... but it would only look for a second before deciding it was not worth it. Maybe there is an issue with the specific one I downloaded, but so far card recovery is the winner

Little Fisher,

I looked at san disk's program but it did NOT come free with my sanDisk flash card (or at least I cannot figure out how to make it free!). Card recovery costs just as much ($40) but it recovered more of the photos I like best. Interstingly, SanDisk and card recover found DIFFERENT photos.

Thank you
Airdale

Hi Airdale

Thanks for the feedback.

I was finding the same thing
It seems pretty good at Hard Drives but poor at CD's and memory cards.

Oh well! I guess you get what you pay for.


Here is another "demo" if you wish to try it.
