Question about Fuji Discovery 1000 35mm Point and Shoot Camera
There is a gold bar missing from my card and I have taken it to 2 labs for retrieval with no response ,, They could not do anything, any suggestions.. thanks
With a physically damaged card the only option is to send it to a data recovery specialist. But their services cost a fortune, so unless the images you wish to save are invaluable then the only "fix" is to discard the card and the images and replace it with a new one.
If there is any electrical contact showing at all then you *might* be able to cobble together a temporary fix by using electrically conductive glue (from electronics shops, not cheap) to stick a temporary contact made from a tiny cut-off piece of an aluminium drinks can (make sure that you sand all paint and varnish from both sides of the aluminium). If you have excellent soldering skills then you may be able to solder on a temporary contact, but it's difficult to do without overheating the component. Either way, the job needs to be really neat to avoid damaging the camera contacts and it's safest to use an external card reader which can be replaced cheaply and easily if the "fixed" card damages the contacts.
