Ecamm Networks' updated CardRaider 1.2 software could save you losing your digital camera pictures.

CardRaider ($19.95) is a utility for recovering photos from digital camera memory cards.

The Mac OS X software isn't just for recovering holiday snaps – the update introduces support for professional RAW images for cameras manufactuerd by Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fuji and Olympus.

CardRaider can recover lost or deleted photos and pictures stored on corrupted memory cards through a one-click scan-and-recover process. Recovered images can be sent directly to iPhoto.

The software is also capable of finding images on damaged or reformatted media cards that don't show up in the Finder, and can also permanently erase images.
