CardRaider 2 for digicams
Ecamm Network today unveiled CardRaider 2.0, an update to its utility for recovering data from digital camera memory cards, adding the ability to restore movie data as well as photos. The application is designed to retrieve images and movies that were either accidentally deleted or lost, and features a one-click scan and recover mode. Once the data has been recovered, it can be directly sent to iPhoto. The update is available for free to existing users, while new copies of the software are available for $20, with a free demo located on Ecamm's website.
CardRaider is also capable of restoring data from a damaged or reformatted media card that won't mount to the desktop, and will recognize a number of different file formats, such as JPG, RAW variants, MPEG, AVI, and QuickTime Movie files. The company notes that some cameras require a card reader to attempt recovery, since not all cameras mount media in the same fashion when connected to a computer.
