Used with new Canon 7D, became corrupted,
This review is from: SanDisk SDCFX-032G-A61 32 GB Extreme CompactFlash Memory Card 60MB/S (Personal Computers)
Brand new card, brand new camera, very important backpack travel. The card has huge capacity, allowing (according to the camera) over 500 jpeg-plus-RAW images (over 40 Mb combined). With over half the card filled, the camera suddenly stopped recognising the card. My USB card reader also failed to recognise it. Luckily I had two spare 4 Gb cards and completed the trip. One recovery service recovered only partial files, but a software package available online recovered everything. The card's directory probably got wiped. I have heard there may be an issue with these super large capacity cards. I will now only use it for storage. (Side note: be leary of recovery services who see 32GB and want to charge $1000 (one saying "Sandisk has encryption which makes it more difficult"). The software I got cost $50 for a permanent license.)

Sandisk used to include a memory recovery disk with their cards. It was called Rescue PRO. I have used it successfully in the past.

Me too! It works great.
The company that markets CCleaner also has a recovery program; which works excellent on any type of HDD, including memory cards.

I have also effectively used Scan Disk on Win7 PRO to clean/fix bad file systems on my removable media. It won't do a file recovery, though, just fix file system errors.

Could you let me know where you had the software recovered? I had this problem with the Transcend 16G on my Canon T3i. Frustrating. Especially in the middle of a shoot!
