Back in August, we received a 64GB Transcend Compact Flash card. Under first assessment, the card was found to have a dead controller. There was no other solution but to remove the chips and use VNR to recover the data.
After removing the casing of the CF card, we found 4 NAND chips.
NAND was carefully removed and prepared for the reader.
NAND reader and the correct cradle is ready for the reading of the chips.
In VNR, the NAND chips were loaded and data reconstructed.
Unfortunately, it’s not a complete success. Only half of the data was recovered for an unknown reason. The customer was still happy with what they could get. This data belonged to a TV crew and re-shooting this footage was impossible, thus they were happy with anything that we could salvage.
As seen in the image here, only every other folder was recovered, these folders should’ve had consecutive numbering, and only every other folder was recovered.
