    Super glue.

    If the file is corrupted, there is nothing you can do.
    The digital ones and zeros are either there and in order, or they're not.

  3. depends on the damage and if the damage is in the JPEG file or in the file
    system on the flash card.

    First, the JPEG file:

    The JPEG file comes in two parts. The first part is the EXIF header that
    tells the system lots about what's in the file, when it was taken, the
    thumbnail, etc.

    The second part is the real photo data.

    if the first part is hosed, you MIGHT be able to get something to read it
    and find the photo data. I don't have any real solutions for you becuase it
    all depends on what is damaged and where.

    I can telll you this: The earlier versions of EasyShare software didn't
    like some changes that other programs made to the EXIF headers if they did
    them wrong. Starting with V3.3 we did update the EXIF reader to be more
    "tolerant" of EXIF headers that aren't quite right.

    Next, the file system:

    I did see some thing a couple of weeks ago about a company who will recover
    files from a damaged flash card (CF, SD, etc) but can't place the name.
    there are a bunch of these types. A google search should find a couple for

    good luck

    Hi Rick,

    Sorry to hear about your situation.

    I have a program that works exceedingly well for me - Image Recall. Not a
    Kodak product, so I am not sure about details. It has always worked for me.
    I can recover images easily then reformat so card is prepared for use again.
    If you need details, you can contact me offline and I will be glad to

    Try a google search for "software+digital+image+rescue" (or replace rescue
    with repair) USE the quote marks USE the + sign.
