Corrupt raw file

2 years 10 months ago #662595 by sjhgeary
Hello! I'm struggling with corrupt raw files. I've reformatted my sd card several times and keep having the same issue. There's a purple overlay, and weird sections of previously deleted images. See attached - the (bad hospital lighting!) photo of the banners is the image I took, but the two sections on the righthand side are of an image that I took months prior and had deleted from the card. Also as you can see, this is only happening in the raw format - the jpg is fine (but I would prefer to edit in raw).Can you help me figure out:1) How to recover this image? and2) How to prevent this from happening again?Products are:- Sony 128GB SF-G Series UHS-II SDXC Memory Card- Sony Alpha a7 III - Files pulled from iMac (card slot in back) running Mojave OS, v.10.14.6TIA!

I suggested a student of mine with a very similar problem to
reinstall or update the firmware… a wild guess, but it did it!

Nice! Firmware to the camera? Or the SD card?

When you visit the maker's site, it will be explained
step by step how to do it and that will imply to use
the card.

He is referring to the camera body firmware.
