To the interested ones, I have a working solution to recover lost data from PS2 MCs as long as the MC is not badly damaged.
My solution will work if you formatted the MC by accident or if you deleted files from it, and the MC was not used to write more data on it, overwriting the deleted data.
This solution will also work if the MC have small percentage of "bad blocks" and the file allocation table is damaged.
My solution is based on booting from FreeMCBoot and use a special elf file (program) to image the MC to a file by connecting a USB hard drive or Pen Drive to the PS2 USB port. Then the image file is scanned on a PC to retrieve the data from it and the data is copied back to another MC.´
If you have lost all of your save games and you can't live without them, I can help you for a small fee, as long as you ship me the damaged card, a known good card to copy the files that can be recovered to, and of course you pay for the shipping costs.
PM if interested.
