Here's a picture:
... but when I came upstairs to pull the images off of the card, they were all damaged and corrupt.
That's not right.
But wait... why is there a pic up there?
With all that has been going wrong with the world electronically these last few days, I wasn't surprised.
So I hopped on to Google and typed in "mac restore digital camera card" and a link popped up for CardRaider for Mac.
You have found the easiest and most affordable way to recover lost photos from your digital camera, memory card or thumb drive.
Just one click and watch your photos and movies clips come back like magic. Find the ones you're looking for and quickly recover to your computer, or send directly to iPhoto.
So I downloaded the demo... and guess what... it worked!
And then some.
As it was scanning the card for my birthday pictures it also retrieved 178 other digital photos and movies that had long been erased.
I was shocked when the thumbnail view pulled up images from holidays, birthdays, school events, swim meets, class trips, guest speakers, conferences, etc.
Only problem... the demo only allows you to save thumbnailed versions with a watermark:
