    Default Corrupt compact flash card

    Hi all as title says my 2g compact flash can not be recognised in my PC or laptop. I was going through the pictures of my daughters wedding turned off the PC and took out the card. Since then I can not get the card seen on my PC. Is there any software out there that I can use? In these days you can recover anything I just thought someone on here would have an idea, any information would be a help.
    Thanks

    Ive had this before, try putting it back in camera and input the correct date. Mine went nuts with a 01/01/00 date. It may work.

    Thanks for the reply mate but as I put the card in the camera on the screen I get the message you need to format the card before you can use it as if the main processor chip has gone.

    There may be some official software that can help if you got a (legit) big brand card.

    I just lost an 8gig micro SD but I think that's due to it being fake, makes me really nervous about my cameras SD cards.

    I have a few of the sandisk codes for their recovery software if you think one of those will help? Im not sure if it will only work with sandisk cards but could be worth a try?
