    Just had a SD card corrupted and all data lost - apparently. Ran a
    specialised memory card data recovery program but no luck. Then, cos had
    nothing to lose, ran Windows Command Prompt check disk, chkdsk.exe against
    the card. It recovered all the files and put them in a 'FOUND.chk' folder
    (It was not obvious that it had done this). So chkdsk always worth a try.

    Did the files display correctly when renamed?
