Retrieving Pictures from Damaged or Faulty Camera Cards:
We here at www.cambridge-datarecovery.co.uk can help you recover your data from a memory card that has suffered a serious enough failure to disable read/write access. This may be the result of a problem with the hardware contained within the memory card or as the result of damage sustained because of misuse. We have 15 years experience in recovering data from memory cards that have been damaged either by physical mistreatment or as the result of a software or hardware failure.
Camera Memory Card Physical Connection Failure:
The memory card has a series of connectors on what is referred to as a controller which is inserted into a memory card reader or into the host device for reading. These connectors can sometimes become corrupted or corroded as result of overuse or simply as the result of a weakness in the manufacturing process. With this in mind we here at www.cambridge-datarecovery.co.uk are on hand to help our clients recover data from memory cards that have damaged connectors, using sophisticated card reading technology and a wealth of experience from our engineers.
Camera Memory Card Flash Degradation:
Inside a memory card there are three memory chips onto which the data that you have saved is stored. These memory chips are connected by a series of soldered circuits – in the midst of which is the write protect circuit – that are ultimately connected to the controller which enables the card to pass this information to the host device. Some of these components may suffer degradation as the result of over use or because they have been introduced to extremely high or low temperatures. Although degradation is in evidence it is still possible for us to retrieve the data from the memory card and as such we are asked on a regular basis by a host of memory card users (photographers, designers, architects etc) to recover their data and back it up for safekeeping to an alternate medium.
Inappropriate Formatting Or Deletion Of Material From Camera Memory Card:
As much as we would all like to say we are beyond doing it, the truth is none of us are beyond accidentally deleting information on a memory card. It can be done either by overriding the write protect circuit whilst the memory card is in the device it was designed for, or while it is in the computer we are using to access the data. The purpose of the write protect circuit is to prevent the deletion of the data on the card accidentally however this does not preclude the request from the user to delete the material and as such when the command is entered through the operating system, the memory card has no alternative but to obey. We are regularly asked to retrieve data that has been accidentally deleted or formatted and we can do so as long as the card has not had new material written to it or been reformatted. Contact us here at www.cambridge-datarecovery.co.uk for information on how we can restore your data.
USB 2.0/3.0 Not Capable of Accessing Or Recognising Camera Memory Card:
Memory cards are more often than not read through a computer’s operating system using either a built-in memory card reader or an external card reader that has been attached to the device using a USB 2.0/3.0 adapter. We are asked here at www.cambridge-datarecovery.co.uk to help clients recover data that cannot be read through these devices as the result of a failure within the operating system to recognise the adapter. This may be the result of a change in the software, the overwriting of important system files, or the deletion of DLL (Dynamic Link Library Files).
