Compact Flash Card Data Recovery

Compact Flashcards are widely used to store photos and videos. It is more than 25 years now that CF cards have proved to be one of the most reliable and preferred storage media for cameras. Some cameras use multiple CF cards that provide higher data transfer speed. Does this mean you don’t need a backup plan anymore? Of course not. They fail too, like the CF card here with TSOP48 form factor chips. The card is defective, but not due to the controller, but because of its memory chips. To put it, communication between a controller and memory chips can grow worse as the last age over time. After removing the memory chips and reading the raw data directly from them, we were able to rescue more than 90% of photos from a birthday party event.
