Data recovery software

What third software is available to recover damaged files from a RAW drive such as a "ZIO" for flash cards? When I click on the drive it lists the files but tells me the files may be corrupt or damaged. This drive has a FAT 16 file system.

Norton disk doctor is a good way to start. Other solutions are available but try http://www.winternals.com for some cool tools to help you.

You may also want to check the Winntmag Web site and search for author and master coder Mark Russinovich who is a PHD from Carnegie Mellon and has written many device driver level tools for data manipulation and recovery.
