HELP! How can I retrieve lost photos from an SDHC card?

by sarahwood99 / August 21, 2012 2:01 AM PDT

EMERGENCY! Is it possible to retrieve lost photos and videos from an SD card? I've lost 128 of over 400 photos/videos from a Fuji film 4 GB Class 6 SDHC card. The photos and videos were all there when I reviewed them several times in my camera, but when I attempted to download the photos from the SDHC card to my MAC, a window came up on my MAC saying the files could not be downloaded because they were unreadable. It listed the jpg files individually by a name and left a blank space in iphoto for each missing photo. This affected about a third of the photos/videos on the card and the rest of the photos were downloaded just fine and came out beautifully. Also, the missing photos are interspersed throughout the card, not in just one spot chronilogically. I need these photos for my career so any help is GREATLY appreciated! Thank you!

Hi! I think you are searching a recovery program which can work on Mac os. In fact, I ever met your situation in last month, my little son accidently deleted all the photos from my camera sdhc card. What the worst is I have no copy for those pics, which are important for my business. So I was hurry to search solution for photo recovery from sdhc card, besides I am a Macbook user, so I need a recvoery program for Mac. Finally I got a Mac recovery program named Card Data Recovery for Mac, it helped me recover all the deleted photos from sdhc card on mac. You can have a try. Good luck!

Don't worry; you can get back your lost photos and videos from SD card. When I accidentally deleted my photos from my phone SD card, I tried one application named as "Remo recover tool" by employing this tool, I recovered all the photos from the SD card. You can also try it to restore your lost photos and videos effortlessly.

Remo is spammed a lot.

So much that you get the idea it's just spam ware. There are Recuva and other free titles that seem to work just as well.
