What To Do When Your Memory Card Fails

Over the last 10 years or so I have had memory card failures on four occasions, once was during the photographing of an award ceremony. Panic was my first response but I quickly changed the memory card and stored the corrupted one away safely. I was lucky I had lost only 2 shots which was amazing as I had photographed about 50 students up to that time. I had a painful couple of days trying to recover my images but eventually found software that did so. This article talks you through the basic procedure. When it happens to you, and it certainly might sometime, don’t panic just follow these instructions, good luck
