I posted this in the photography thread but I think it's escalated now. And here's the events to the day; -Use Mac with Microdrive plugged into card reader. -Eject Microdrive. Put system to sleep. Stick drive in camera. -Take lotsa photos! 1.5gb's worth, infact. Power had been switched off multiple times and could view photos on the LCD. -Get back. Mac in sleep. Stick Microdrive into card reader, press power button to wake up Mac. Look at the drive (iPhoto didn't pop up) and see ALL the pictures taken since ejecting the drive have vanished. Completely. Funny thing is the drive is still seeing that 1.5gb being used up. Yet, I see a jump in the folders on the drive, ie. Canon1, Canon2, Canon3, Canon8. All except for Canon8 have pictures inside. I see the same on Windows too. Any recommendations here, I'm thinking about trying out a demo of File Buddy. Just I hear that can see files. And because the drive is a Fat32 I'm going to run it through a recovery program my dad has on his PC. As soon as that machine is free like. Any OSX application suggestions? or tips? I'm determined to get these photos back. 5 hours of adventure photos on a beautiful summer day.
