    Corrupt Files? Need help please!

    I just finished a shoot tonight and have tried to download my files and have run into a big problem. It downloaded the first 4 files and then I get this message. I can see the files on the card? Any suggestions to salvage these would be greatly appreciated.
    FYI, I am shooting with H4D-40 and have tried Phocus and Lightroom.
    Thanks,
    Greg

    Can you see the files when looking at the screen on the back?

    I have recovered images from Canon and Hasselbad with PhotoRescue software by DataRescue: home of PhotoRescue, data recovery solution for flash memory cards . I've been using it for 8-9 years. Download the software, run it, if it recovers your images then purchase it and run it again.

    Funny thing is I just worked on a couple of Hassie images I recovered a couple of months ago just this afternoon.

    I used photo rescue to retrieve some images from my IQ back - when I had a problem.

    What I found was that the files were TIFF files, full resolution - but they were not the RAW files from Phase One.

    Is this what other have found - or have I failed to use the software correctly?

    Mal,

    That's right. You get TIFF files back.

    I've gotten some mustard stains on my shorts when I've lost images, but PhotoRescue has done a fantastic job of getting images back.

    I think it's usually a momentary power loss to card reader that causes problems more than anything else.
