My wife managed to do what I can never easily do. Erase all the photos on her camera memory card. CardRaider demo installed and worked flawlessly. I bought it straight away. Saved every photo. Other software I tried did not recover any photos. Great software. I wish other software was this easy to install & use. Les, Adelaide, South Australia.

I purchased this software in a mild panic, after having mistakenly formatted my memory card BEFORE uploading the pictures to my iMac. I was using a Panasonic GH2 (.RW2 and .JPG) with a SanDisk 64Gb SDXC card and was able to recover all of the images I thought I had lost. Initially, I had problems getting the software to recognise my SD card, so I emailed the developer & within 36 hours I had a new version of the software to accommodate the fact that my card had been formatted as ExFAT. After this update - the software worked flawlessly & recovered everything from the card within a couple of hours. The customer service from the developer was nothing less than first rate - I am glad to now have this program as insurance against a failure (or stupid operator error) again!

CardRaider is a must for any person who uses Mac and owns a digital camera, consumer or professional. I have used it multiple times to save priceless photos that I either deleted from the card by accident or from issues with iPhoto saying the photos transferred and then crashing only to discover that the photos are no where to be found. Most importantly, it comes with unlimited upgrades to newer versions and the support team is absolutely phenomenal.

I had a card error on my Panasonic Camera. Nothing was working to recover my photos shot in jpeg and RAW (RW2) format. I downloaded many of the file rescue programs I found on MacUpdate. Nothing worked. I tried CardRaider 2.0.4, it came the closest to working, it would show me the jpegs but not the RW2 files. The RW2 files were the important files I wanted. I sent eCamm an email saying I would have purchase your software if it had worked with Panasonic RW2 files. The next morning I had a reply to my email with a copy of the yet unreleased version 2.0.5 attached. They sent me the FULL version FREE to try out. It worked! All my files were recovered. All they asked for in return was some feedback. What a great company! Today I found out about this update being released, I purchased the version they sent me for free out of gratitude for their trust and the quality of their software.

Amazing! I downloaded CardRaider to see if it would restore photos on an 8gb SD HC card. I had already reformatted this card with my camera thinking iPhoto had imported them. There was a problem with iPhoto and I lost them all. Until CardRaider. Restored them all, and FAST. In FULL resolution! If I never restore another photo, it was worth the $20 for these 83!

It was 2AM, I was on a professional shoot when the card errored out. The subject was on the move, so I winced, reformatted the CF Card and went back to shooting. I got my shots, but I blasted what was on the card. Afterword, I had one of those "oh S*&%" moments realizing the card (before fomatting) had photos (important ones) that hadn't been transfered yet. CardRaidrer found all the files and more. Files that had been erased several sessions back. Wow! I am VERY happy to have all those files back. Yay! Don't need to explain to the client how I erased their photos.

This app worked great for me a few days ago. My wife mistakenly deleted a vid file from one of our cameras while reviewing shots we took. I also looked on MU for apps that would recover files - tried all of them (PhotoRescue, Stellar Phoenix, Exif Untrasher, and Klix). Some didn't work with video files, others that did couldn't find the one we wanted. The CR demo worked like a charm the first time found that file (just wouldn't let me recover that file in the demo). I ponied up the license fee, and got the missing movie file in less that a minute after scanning. I'll also point out that I also tried DiskRescue II, which could not find any deleted files on the same card. So, CR gets my vote. For me, it worked and worked well. The interface could use a little polish, but otherwise no complaints.

This little app is awesome!!! I accidently delete some Halloween pics from my SD card, CardRaider saved my pics and vids, it even found pics I had deleted months ago. I downloaded and ran the software in minutes and it was easy/simple to use, pretty fast (recovered 250 pics and 15 vids in 10 minutes) and sent them straight to iPhoto, it not only created an Event of the recovered pics and vids, but made an album. And you can't beat the price!

The demo version of CardRaider was able to locate salvageable images that EXIF Untrasher missed. Based on that point alone, I will purchase CardRaider. The current MUPromo discount sealed the deal.

I was importing a couple hundred photographs in to iPhoto from my Canon SD750 when iPhoto locked up while Deleting the Originals (I'll never do that again!). I instanlty came to MacUpdate to find a utility to recover my photographs from my 4GB SDHC card. I downloaded a couple. CameraSalvage is twice the price and not as easy to use. Exif Untrasher is free but is not easy to use and it locked up during the recovery. CardRaider is easy to use, effective and affordable.

The best $20 I ever spent. I lost some photos when transferring them from my laptop to my desktop. I foolishly formatted my CF card before verifying the transfer between computers was complete and I thought I had lost several dozen photos. Card Raider found them on a CF card that had been formatted by the camera. Amazing! THANK YOU CARD RAIDER!!! -Todd www.trvphoto.com

I had a Compact Flash Crash on my Canon EOS - nothing was working anymore. This tool was able to restore nearly every photo. Great app - especially for this small price.

I thought I had lost some priceless pictures from my Nikon D50 and was distraught. I figured that $20 was a small price to pay for something that would save my pictures. I tried out the demo and sure enough it was able to see the pictures on teh camera's memory card. I then paid for the program and was give a download immediately. On my older G4 Powermac 1.25ghz, the program wouldn't start, so I then copied the app to my newer intel iMac, and lo and behold it fired up fine and saved all of the pictures from the memory card! This is a simple program that works as it should, with minimal fuss. And for $20 the price is reasonable enough. Ideally, this is a program I don't want to use too often, but it's nice knowing that I have it just in case...

Awesome program. Was able to recover deleted photos from SD card in Casio camera. It also found images that had not been written over yet. Very simple interface. Feature to import recovered files directly into iPhoto. Forgive me for only scanning the manual however, this feature places the photos into the 'recovered photos' folder and not the iPhoto library where I had expected to see them. The 'last roll' folder only contained one of the recovered photos. I consider this a bug. However, I will get over it for now. I dont HOPE to be using this program anymore. But glad its there if I need it!
