- To avoid possible overwriting, be sure not to put any additional pictures on the same memory card before you recover them. But if you have done that, try CardRecovery and it may still be able to recover the remaining pictures in most cases, but the pictures that were written over are unrecoverable.
- If your camera does not appear as a drive letter in “My Computer” after it is connected, an USB card reader may be needed to allow picture recovery software like CardRecovery to access and recover your card. Such a card reader is very useful and it allows you to access the pictures on the CF Card using your computer. Some newer computers have this type of card reader already built-in. You may find many by searching for the CF card reader in Amazon, or BestBuy.
