Today I was using a class 4 SD card. It was working really slow whenever I tried to view and image. Then for some reason all the images disappeared when I went back to view them again. I noticed after that each time I took images on that card it would disappear.
Came home and tried recovery programs to see if I could get them back, because the card count was showing that each time I took an image the number would go down. The recovery program found the files but it was in Jpg format, when I was shooting in RAW all day. Any idea how this happened?
Very useful and precise information. Thanks a lot.
