Anyone have any recommendations for software to recover photos from a damaged SD card?

Thanx

You can try this: PhotoRec - CGSecurity
Haven't used it yet myself but heard good things about it.

I downloaded Photorec and tried launching the program, but it didn't open. And the file icon was just the blank page icon. Anybody know why this might happen?

Looking at the download page, this is a .tar.bz2 file which "should" decompress with the built-in zip utility.
Did it do anything when you double clicked on it? If not, try using Unarchiver on it to decompress.

The file "testdisk-6.11.3.darwin.tar.bz2" that was downloaded decompresses, but the resulting folder "testdisk-6.11.3" which contains the Photorec files does not show the files as application files. They show as generic document files. And when the Photorec file is double clicked, the error message "There is no default application specified to open the file Photorec" comes up. Any thoughts why this is happening?

Your best bet for recovering any corrupted or erased files from any form of media is an App called Data Rescue II.

It's save my butt several times.

It seems PhotoRec is a command line tool. If you're not familiar with Terminal you might want to try something else (see above post).
Docs can be found here: PhotoRec Step By Step - CGSecurity

Need to resurrect this old thread because I'm trying to find a free (or very inexpensive) tool to recover deleted pics from my camera's memory stick (sony memory pro stick).
While on vacation this weekend I went to delete a photo and accidentally clicked on "delete all". Idiot! So, I'm in a bit of a predicament.

I'm currently looking at Card Rescue but don't know anything about the company or app and I want to avoid spending the $40 if I can. I doubt there's anything out there for free but wanted to at least take a shot at asking those who might know.

My SanDisk SD card reader came with a data recovery software package. It was on minidisk so I had to use my windows machine to transfer the files to a USB drive for use on my Mac.

If you're like me you can always use another card reader, so it might be worth checking to see if some suppliers are still bundling data recovery software with their card readers.

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .
