Fairfield, CT (February 14, 2003) - Photographic Research Organization, Inc. (PRO), a cooperative owned by independent specialty retailers, announces today that they are the exclusive distributor to the photo industry of MediaRECOVER Image Recovery Software for Windows from MediaRECOVER , Inc. No matter if images, videos, or audio files have been deleted or if the digital media has been formatted or pulled out during a write process, this software program reconstructs the corresponding data automatically.

MediaRECOVER is a digital image, data recovery program for recovery of "lost" files on removable media used in digital cameras, PDA's, etc. Common media types supported by the software program are: SmartMedia, CompactFlash, Memory Stick, MicroDrive, Flash Card, Multimedia Card, Secure Digital Card, Zip Disks and also hard drives. If a user has accidentally deleted or formatted their media, this program can recover that data, even if the media has become corrupted.

MediaRECOVER™ helps users repair files that are unusable due to the following reasons:

  • Corruption due to the card being pulled out while the camera is on
  • Corruption due to turning the camera off during a write process
  • Inadvertent camera/computer shutdown
  • Data corruption to critical areas
  • Formatting and using between different cameras/computers
