    Hey All,

    So I had just gotten back from a good day of shooting my friend (professional surfer), I had put the memory card into the computer. Just as it open something happens with the computer and it dies (this has happened like twice and I have had the computer for 4 years now). Anyways now I have 1000+ raw photos on that card and I don't know how to get them off. I tried to get some programs from the internet but they can't extract the .nef files that Nikon attaches to their raw images. If anyone could help me out it would be greatly appreciated as this has never happened to me before.

    Thanks,

    Daniel

    that sucks!

    As The_Traveler mentioned, start with your card maker.

    Situations like this is why I don't use memory cards bigger than 4GB. Sure I have to swap cards more often, and I have more cards to manage, but I'll never lose 1000+ RAW files off of 1 memory card either.

    I hope you are able to recover most, if not all of the data files.

    I got them all of using the program I found last night. It got them off as tiff files but now I can change them back to .nef files. Crisis averted :hug::

    To recover your lost photos from memory card, here is the Top 6 Free Photo Recovery Software that may help.

    If they are all quite important to you. I'd like suggest you to try some professional photo recovery programs because free software may be not so good at recovering all them back. I think Wondershare Photo Recovery is a nice choose. With deep scanning, it can recover photos that cannot be recovered even found by other recovery tools to get overall quality and deep recovery with intelligence.

    Note: don't save new files especially sizeable ones to the disk in case your original pictures are overwritten
    Good luck and best wishes!

    I swear every file recovery outfit out there manages to find a thread like this (can't get images off memory card), and register just so they can plug their services. I, for one, will refuse to use ANY of their services just because of their blatant disregard for the forum rules.
