Hi there

I have a GoPro and i've recorded about 10gb of data. i went to my mac (latest version of mountain lion) and began the transfer. once it started my computer froze and my only choice was the pull the GoPro from the computer. When I did I plugged in the card and it has not been detected.
I put the card into a card reader and nothing was detected. I even checked disk utilities and the card was not listed

Any idea how I can recover the card?

(I did do research on this topic however most problems were quickly resolved with a simple restore, something that i can do to mine.)
Thank you

This doesn't really sound like a "Mac OS X" problem...it sounds like more of a SD card problem. If you have access to any other computers you could see if the other computer is able to access the data, if not then you could try this software:

SD Card Recovery for Mac (Mac) - Download

I've never used it...just googled it now.
