    Hello again -I do have an earlier post with threads but the answer was not complete. Here is my problem - I have a 4 gig cf card that does not mount when plugged in the reader to my Mac or PC. When I place it in my camera I get the "CF Card Error" message. Now I have looked at many recovery applications and have tested them with other formatted (via the camera) cards to recover the files. But I stress that these cards were not giving me the "CF Card Error"
    My question is: should I format the card via the camera and then recover the files through the application? I am looking for someone who has had this same issue and has been able to resolve it to respond with their experience and or process.

    Help

    Yeah, but it took over four years for 'em to bite.

    It may be found again, but now, no more SPAM will be posted to it.
