Default Minor emergency, need help undeleting files on a CF card ...

I'm trying to transfer the pics from my son's 6th birthday, I'm not dure what I did, but all of a suddent the directory was empty and the pics appear to be gone. I refeshed several times, ejected the reinserted the CF card. And I canr ead the other cards fine.

I'm not sure what happened, I've done this many times before with no trouble.

Does anyone know of anything else to try? Any ideas for recovering the files? I haven't written anything else to the CF card yet. My wife is pretty p!ssed at me, and I feel like a POS.

Thanks very much in advance,

Try this one. The web page is in German, but the installation will allow you to select English as the Language.


Here is the same page (translated into English by Google):


You will see a download link for "Digital Image Recovery: on the page. If you have trouble finding it, here is the direct download link to the software:


The download is compressed (.zip file), so you will need pkunzip.exe or winzip (or another utility capable of extracting the installation .exe file to install it. You can download an eval copy of winzip here:
