External hard drives do not last forever either...
Yep........found that out the hard way in December 2015 when mine crapped out & I lost just about all my photos from 2006- 2010 (100,000 give or take a few). :( :'( I haven't gotten another XHD but probably will in the near future. :-\

This is true but I plan on using it as redundant backup in addition to Crash Plan and the 2nd internal (which I am going to run raid 1 on). If I get 4 years out of it I will be happy, I splurged on the Hitachi which supposedly has the lowest failure rate around. Point is, I don't plan on relying on that exclusively as the backup.

It didn't, sorry Wayne. The first number you gave me dropped the call twice, and the second number was incomplete. I tried a generic Sandisk help line but they told me they couldn't help me since I didn't register the card (which sounds like bs, I offered them the Amazon receipt), and even then they would've just sent a replacement card, not actually recovered the stuff. I have learned a valuable lesson about registering electronics though.

I also went to a branch out in Falls Church for a national company called Ace Data Recovery, they diagnosed it and said it had to be fully rebuilt and it would cost about 2600 bucks, which is roughly 4 times as much as my trip to Tampa cost. So I said no and actually just rebooked another weekend trip to Tampa for the end of this month. Hopefully this time will go better. Thanks again though Wayne.

Pretty sure even a bottle of Dom P wouldn't cost as much as Ace Data Recovery's price lol, I'm all ears if your neighbor wants to help me out. Ace did say it would be a full rebuild job though, bits and parts of the controllers and internal hardware has to be rebuilt and then the data has to be unscrambled. They also said because it was a Sandisk card it takes some special method that means the only way to do it is the full rebuild.

But still, I don't want to discourage you Charlie, I will take all the help I can get. The least I could do would be buying a decent bottle of wine to pay for the troubles.

Heartbroken Pt. 2:

I took Friday off with the intention of making it to Lexington early so I could catch the trucks rolling in for the LCM Southern Classic, because catching them rolling in is a way better photo op than bunched up at the show. I filled up the card, another Sandisk SDXC 64gb, and swapped it out at the place I stayed for the night (which is my new prevention technique used after the disaster of my Florida trip in January). Anyways, get home today, stick the card in the reader, and no files show up. Card reads on the computer but nothing shows up, tried Recuva, etc. and nothing still shows up. At least I have my shots from Saturday so the trip isn't a total waste, but I'm done with these cards that are supposedly the best in the biz.

Did you format the new memory card before using it? ??? I only ask because it's something I've been told to do & I do it every time I use my camera (I upload any pics daily).

As far what's a good memory card or what's the best I don't know. I'd have to check what's in my 2 cameras. The cards in my Rebel t3 and A720 have been in there forever.

Yeah I always format a new card every time I use it. Last time I bought a new card was after the last mishap, it served me months with no issues. TBH since I have 2 of the SDXC 64gb cards once I started using it it's hard to tell which one is old and which is new, this might have been the old card that crapped out.
