    hi i have recently come across my old sd camera cards and micros phone old phones.. i wanted to recover the images and vids off them. I have downloaded a number of diff programs but non seem to let me recover them just view the scans...

    are there any free versions that will deep scan and recover to desktop for me? I would hate to spend 50+ on something i use once... please and thank you

    What the heck do you mean by "recover"? All you need to do is drag the files onto wherever they need to be.

    ive used "stellar photo recove" "data rescue 3" those bothe pull the files up but have to pay to save them to my mac also tried "recuva" both mac and pc and that says nothings on there... trying to find something thats free to scan and recover them so i can save them individually and then eventually print them or whatever

    Which OS version are you using?

    When they don't open, is there an error message that appears? What does it say?

    A free softawre will not recover all your data. You tried stellar phoenix and data rescue, both are good. Pay for one and recover your data.
