Arrrrgh! Lost pictures!?
Pam's MagicStor 2.2 GB Compact Flash MicroDrive has failed! I've tried everything I can think of to recover the images, including raw data tools like Zero Assumption Recovery. Nothing works--the OS sees a device claiming to be a 2 GB drive, but refuses all attempts to access the data therein.

Pictures including Quinn's first outing on his new bike.

I'm so mad and sad and frustrated and just don't know what to do next. I'm scared that the camera running out of juice corrupted the card.

don't try to erase the card yet. I have a smaller card that computers can't access, but when I stuck it into a printer I was able to print pics from the card directly. Have you tried that? Do you have that kind of printer? (if not, I do)

it's worth a try anyway, though I'll admit the chance is slim it'll work. Still, it's worth trying since the contents are not replaceable.

You know, I just remember that you're in Virginia. We're travelling that way this weekend and are having a breakfast foo Saturday, 10 AM, location TBD. Let me know if you're (that would be you, Pam and Quinn, since we're trying to keep it kid-friendly, and I think my friend Lisa is coming with her kids, and her son is around Quinn's age) interested so I can keep you posted on the details.
