Digital image recovery mode is specifically tailored to recover
using a digital camera. These shots are typically stored on some sort of a
small-size, small-capacity removable storage, like Compact Flash memory, Memory
Stick, Secure Digital and so on. These storage types are collectively referred
to as a "memory card".
You need to set the system up in such a way that your memory card is
accessible as a disk drive (with a drive letter like E:). A setup involving an appropriate card reader device
is good for most situations. If you do not have the card reader, or cannot use
it for some reason (e.g. camera is using internal non-removable memory), you
should try using the camera itself to access the memory card. It may be required
that you turn on "Use logical drives" in disk
access options to achieve proper access (this depends upon the implementation
of the camera device driver).
Source (damaged) device and performance considerations
The "image recovery" mode is tailored to work with digital camera memory,
which is relatively small. Thus, the following limitation
- Recovery off the hard disks is not supported1.
1This means we tested and found the results
unsatisfactory (i.e. not worth the effort) most of the time.
