i did a lot of uploading from cards today and received errors only on 2 cards this particular card was transferring then froze on one imagemultiple times,i was able to get the 2 other direcories on the card finished by selecting them as the source but not the last directory.I have canon and nikon files on this card in this directory i do not normally do this but had no other card and did not want to format it.I can view the card with acdsee ok but the last 2 raw and jpegs do not display they are canon files.when i look at the directory with the copied files i only have nikon files and not all of them have copied.it copies only part of the last file and that is where flashpipe freezes. acdsee displays the thumbnail but the image is too small file size so not all of it copied.i have retried several times always with the same result.i think if i could skip this file i could get the other files but that is not an option i can view it on the card in acdsee and the file opens although when flashpipe freezes i cannot view it in acdsee because acdsee freezes too

What to do?

Frankly, I never saw anyone shoot the same card "live" in a Canon, and pull it, and put that card in a Nikon....and shoot more.
My only thought is to put the card in the reader, which should come up in Windows Explorer as a Drive with a letter.
I would try to navigate to the Canon folder that contains the Raw image that will not come out. Open a second copy of Windows Explorer and find your destination folder.
See if you can copy/paste that recalcitrant file from the card to the Hard Drive.

If that doesn't work, then you can try one of those image recovery apps. I have one that recovers images from cards that have been formatted.
I would try to recover the files.
No Success?
I would Format the card and try that recovery app again.

There are a number of them offered FREE on the internet, but if you want a copy of what I use, "Digital Image Recovery", holler with Email address, and I'll send it.
It's pretty small.

Hi Fred
I have a bad habit of keeping my images on the card as a backup in case i lose my images somehow so i have 3 copies at a time.When i put the card in the canon i didn't know it had Nikon files on it,however i have copied the canon files to my desktop and it appears that one of the Nikon files is causing the flashpipe  error only part of the file transfers. I can use acdsee to open the file if i remove the card after flashpipe freezes i am out of the country for the week now so it will have to wait till i get back.i tried to run the sandisk program prior to posting but it too freezes.So i do not understand how acdsee can access the file and display it if the other programs freeze but it gives me hope that i can copy the card to my desktop and try flashpipe from there
incidentally the canon files went straight into the Nikon folder. When i originally tried to download the card i got a wrong volume in drive error i do not get that error now
Thanks for your help if i need to try the program i will give you a shout

The good part of all of this is Flashpipe.
Once you get the hang of reading the card initially using Flashpipe to copy the images from the card, and set up three locations as destinations (as I do), you can then clear the card for the next shoot.
I make one destination row: C:\Pics\Today's shoot
Next row destination: D:\pics\today's shoot
Next row destination: E:\pics\today's shoot   (External Hard drive)
I use COPY in all three rows.
As soon as Flashpipe shows me that the files were copied. (Click File, Show previous transfer), I can safely format the card, or delete the images.

So doubling up using that card should not be a problem again.

PS Going for Chinese food for dinner tonight. Mmmmm!    Going to have to reformat my stomach!   Roll Eyes Cool Grin
