See if there is a Data Doctor in your area. They are good but can be expensive so you will have to decide how much the photos are worth to you. Good luck.

I thought everyone knows the risk of using a micro-drive as apposed to a Compact Flash. the Micro-drive is in essence a MICO DRIVE and with that comes all a hard drives moving parts which are not durable. When ever possible you should use a Compact Flash because they are more durable and no moving parts.

Sorry for your loss....but I remember this happening to me when I owned a D30. What are you shooting with? Is the firmware up to date. Im sure that will not help but at least we can exhaust all possible solutions before you trash it.

Can you access the drive at all? If so try to explore it, retrieve the information and .............. ummm and ummmmm and ummmmm well at least you got the information if you are able to.

I am at a loss for words, sorry for your loss.

yea yea I know all the risk about shooting with micro drives. Ive been shooting digital for seven years now and havent shoot with a mirco for years. My daughter had picked up one of my old ones and shot 274 frames and it stopped on her. By the way, I never had a micro drive fail on me but I've had two CF card go bad. humm (Lexar) I still shoot with Lexar cards.

As a last resort you can try one of the software products that will often be able to recover photos from a microdrive or CF card. Here is an example of one of them:

http://www.cardrecovery.com/

Many of these products offer a free trial. You run it and it will show you if there are photos it can recover. If it says it can recover them, then you buy it to complete the process.

Search Google for

recover photos

and you see lots of products like this.

Good luck.

Cheers,
rfs
