i wasn't sure which forum to put this in, but i guess this is something random.

i have camera phone with a 1gb miniSD card, after a couple of months, i noticed that pictures i take from my phone get distorted/corrupted (both on the phone and when i transfer the pictures onto my laptop). i was wondering if there were freeware out there that i could use to recover my pictures.

What do you mean by "distorted/corrupted"? How much can you see of the pictures?
Also what is the model of camera phone?

Try this:

I haven't tried it myself, but I've heard good things about it.

Pipo, The link from taybay works. Try to paste it into another browser. BBPress sometimes does funny things.
