Hi all,

Has anyone managed to recover images from an xd card that has files that display "PICTURE ERROR" when viewed ???

It's my own fault, disconnected the wrong USB lead during a write cycle and now have 7 file with the PICTURE ERROR message displayed when viewing them :eek:

Fortunatly nothing important :\

You can try testdisk which includes photorec for recovering files.

http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk

Its multi platform and is released under GNU (open source)

I have used it several times. You will need to connect the flash card into a card reader. It may work when used in the camera (when using the storage option), but I have never tried this.

John,
Thanks for the link. As soon as I saw your answer I remembered I had a disk "RescuePro" that came with my SanDisk card. I tried that and it worked.

Thanks for taking the time and effort to help, it's very much appreciated.
