CardRaider Photo Recovery makes it simple to unerase digital pictures and movies from your memory card. Download now and your lost photos will be recovered within the next five minutes.

Digital photography opens up a world of possibilities, including corrupt memory cards or accidentally erasing your pictures. CardRaider automates the process of restoring lost JPEGs, RAW files and movies.

Just one click and watch your photos and movie clips come back like magic. Find the ones you're looking for and quickly recover to your computer, or send directly to iPhoto.

Features include:
• One-click scan and recover.
• See thumbnails and preview before recovering.
• Finds JPEG images and just about every RAW image format.
• Finds AVI, MOV and MPG movies too.
• Send recovered images to iPhoto.
• Works on damaged or reformatted cards.
• Bonus feature: Permanently erase a photo so it can no longer be recovered.

Note: Certain cameras, including most Canon models, do not make their memory card available to the Mac when connected to the Mac via USB. In this case, CardRaider will need to read the card using a memory card reader.

Some Testimonials From CardRaider Users:

“Just wanted to let you know, you saved my bacon today. For whatever reason my card was working fine in my camera. I could preview images. They were there. Then I plugged the card into the computer to import and nothing was there. I put it back in the camera and they were gone. I found CardRaider on VersionTracker and next thing I know it's recovering the images. Thank you SO MUCH! I would have lost a whole morning's work doing 20+ headshots!”

“Thank you. CardRaider saved the day. My daughter just returned from a six week archaeological dig at the north rim of the Grand Canyon with 453 photos on her XD picture card.
She began downloading them to iPhoto but something went wrong. Only 38 of the 453 photos downloaded and the XD card was now blank. To use the word heartbroken would be a huge understatement. CardRaider recovered all 453 photos! Thanks again.”
-Dan Strong

“ During the pre-wedding photo shooting, my CF card on my Canon 400D SLR camera failed. I was shocked and devastated as I did not know this could happen!

However, thanks to my computer expert friend back in New Zealand, we found your site through search and within a few minutes and only $19.99 I had all my 70 images on my computer! I watched and listened to a miracle happen!

Thank you Ken to you and your staff for this opportunity to have "found to which that was lost" as the New Testament states! Kind regards.”
-Joy van Lier

recovers images that iPhoto loses - I bought this to fix a too-frequent problem: 1) iPhoto imports SD card images 2) After import I tell iPhoto to delete images from SD card. After all iPhoto has them, right? And I need that SD card space 3) iPhoto crashes and loses its copy of the images. Thanks iPhoto! This app recovered the deleted images from the SD card. Problem solved.

VERY PLEASE - I accidentally formatted a SandDisk photo drive on my Mac. I had many photographs that were so important for me to have. I downloaded this app, and within 3 seconds I recuperate all my images.

THANK YOU! - I was the photographer for a wedding recently—a huge responsibility and my first time doing it. I thought I was really prepared with all my memory cards and my backup camera. But something happened with one of my memory cards during the process of downloading them onto my hard drive. The memory card was wiped clean when my husband accidentally moved my laptop and the card reader came loose from the usb port. I’ve never seen anything like it! But this app found ALL of my photos—minus just a few (maybe 4 or 5 out of 1000 RAW files on the card) that were completely ruined, but I take a lot of duplicates so it didn’t matter. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU—I have never reviewed an app before and I would have paid $1,000 or more to get those photos back!

Crash, crash, crash - This app crashed the first time I used it, worked the second time and then crashed every time I have tried to use it each time. It is horrible. What a waste of $20. I bought it tonight and removed it tonight.

Review by Texadango

Crashes - Save your money. I had corrupted a Lexar 128 Gb 1066x UDMA 7 CF card by using an older card reader. I was able to save all but one image using the card manufacturer’s app. The demo version ran okay, and I hoped to get that one image (and have another tool for the future). I wasted $19.99 and purchased the full version on that basis. The full version crashes if I attempt to scroll inside the app window. It takes about two hours to scan the whole card. Imagine my frustration when the app crashes (just plain disappears without warning) after waiting two hours. Note, I’m running OS X 10.10.2 on a Mac Pro 2.8 GHz Quad Core with 16 Gb of memory.

Oh soooooo Thankful - I am writing this email as I see the amazing job this app is doing in retrieving my photos from years of back ups on a drive that partitioned after I pushed “cancel”. I was heart broken and numb when I woke up the next morning to find the hard drive partitioned. I am now looking at so many photos popping up. I lost a friend in a house fire and his pics are available to share with his surviving family. Many thanks for this awesome product. I thought I lost all my photos from my safari. I can’t wait to see what is recovered in a few hours time!!!! I bought this over the other ones because of the great reviews. I hope to encourage others.
