Memory Card Corrupted In Canon Eos 7d Camera

Embedded with brand new features, Canon EOS 7D digital camera is a delight for all the photographers. The camera with 18 mega pixel captures tremendous images and videos and stores them on the CF (Compact Flash) memory card. These cards, although considered to be safe media of storage, can be corrupted due to numerous reasons. Corruption of these cards primarily results in inaccessibility of all the images and videos stored in the cards. In such cases, these multimedia files can be easily accessed from a valid backup, usually created on a computer system. However, if a photographer has not created any backup or backup is incomplete, then the photographer needs to use an advanced third-party Card Recovery Software.

Consider a practical scenario, where any of the below error messages are displayed on the LCD monitor of the Canon EOS 7D camera:

The card cannot be used
Or
Card cannot be accessed. Reinsert/change card or format card with camera.

After the above error message appear on the LCD screen, the data stored on the CF memory card becomes inaccessible. Furthermore, these error message do not allow you to click any new images or videos.

Cause:

The root cause for any of the above error messages is corruption of CF memory card. Few major reasons for corruption are improper handling of camera, interrupted read/write operation, and virus infection.

Resolution:

The only possible way to resolve the above problem, in case of backup unavailability, you will need to format the memory card with camera (as suggested in error message). But, once the card is formatted, the data saved on it gets erased. The formatted images, videos, or any other multimedia files can be only recovered by using an advanced Card Recovery application. The Card Recovery utility allows recovery in three simple steps, download the software from Internet, connect card to your system, and run the application. With easy to understand documentation, the photographer can easily perform the recovery process. The software is completely non-destructive as it does not makes any changes in the original data stored on the memory card.

Compatible with almost all file types, the software is designed for Windows and Mac OS X. The software can recover data from other storage media as well.
