Tried everything. I've got a crucial 140Kb file found on my all in one camera cum USB Drive disk (aiptel PocketDV2). I've not been able to get it as it seems to be corrupted. Is there anysoftware to recover that kind of error...

I use Badcopy Pro from click here It's recovered lost/corrupt files for me and does what it says on the tin and it recovers from all types of media. It's a free download and I'm sure you get a coupe of recovery attempts before you have to buy it.

Give it a go!

Dialog box appears "The Specified I/O operation on \device\harddisk1\dr9 was not completed before the time-out period expired." Then when I click OK, scan continues showing that ALL the sectors are corrupted (but only one SXC file - openoffice Calc file is corrupted). Then my USB Camera Drive is no longer recognized so that I can unplugged and replug it Does this mean that I am f.... up? What can I do in this case

FYI, I tried WinHex but seems to get problems even reading the CF card. The above Error message came with badcopy pro.

Badcopy pro has a good support site.

It may be an idea to e-mail them for advice. They promise that if they your data can't be recovered (and it might mean sending your media to them) then you'll get a full refund.

ZAR has worked for me in the past. Not infallible, but free, so worth a try.

If you are still trying to recover your images, I have a freeware copy of Digital Image recovery. Email me and I will send you a copy

I did was not able to solve it. BTW, it is a file, not an image. The problem is that it was a SXC file, calc file. It is an XML compressed file. I was able to rename it to .ZIP instead of .SXC and then zip repair it. But unfortunately, the file was not what I was looking for. Instead of text, I've got an image!Anyway I deleted it and managed to keep one thing in Mind.
