P.S.

Let me know what Windows version after you finish eating and we can try to see if it can recognize the card and fix any errors using chkdsk /f if you want to pursue it further and see if we can get the file system to mount on it and get back anything photorec may have missed.

If not, I'd run this utility on the card, and then format it using the camera's menu choice for format before using it again. But, don't do that until you're sure you don't need anything else from it.

Sorry for the delay. I just ran up to the corner store real quick.

OK... does the card show up under "My Computer"? If so, what drive letter is associated with it?

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like fsck can fix the file system so that it's mountable (at least not on the disk image file we created). Very odd (and the mismatches between physical and logical partition offsets is also very odd). Something sure stepped on the partition table and file system on it. That can sometimes happen if you remove a card without using the Safely Remove choice, resulting in corruption.

So, if you want to see if anything else is recoverable on it (something that's not contiguous that photorec might have missed), we need to have a mountable file system, and using chkdsk /f is your best bet for fixing a Microsoft File System problem. So, I'd reboot into Windows XP and see if the card is showing up under My Computer. If so, let me know what drive letter is assigned to it.

OK.

Click Start, and then click Run.

Type cmd in the Open box, and then press ENTER.

At the command prompt, type this:

chkdsk j: /r

That should find any bad sectors and repair them at the same time it fixes the file system (implied /f). It may prompt you that it won't run without a reboot. See what happens and let me know.

C:\Documents and Settings\ajuba>chkdsk j: /r
The type of the file system is RAW.
CHKDSK is not available for RAW drives.

Then the file system is not repairable using chkdsk (it's not even seeing the FAT32 partition on it). Figures (since linux fsck couldn't repair it well enough so that it was mountable when we tried on a disk image copy of the card).

In that case (the file system is not going to be repairable from what I can tell), I'd download and run this utility (see the download link at the bottom of the page) and see if it formats OK with it (so you can use the card again):
