Have you ever accidentally deleted all your camera photos? Maybe you or someone you know accidentally pressed “erase all” on your digital camera. With CardRaider, one click is all it takes to watch your photos and movie clips come back like magic. It’s the easiest and most affordable way to recover lost photos from your digital camera, memory card or thumb drive.

Find the ones you’re looking for and then quickly recover to your computer, or send directly to iPhoto.


Features:

     One-click scan and recover.
     See thumbnails and preview before recovering.
     Finds JPEG and most RAW image formats.
     Finds AVI, MOV and MPG movies too.
     Send recovered images to iPhoto.
     Works on damaged or reformatted cards.
     Upgrades are always free.
     Try before you buy. Download the demo.

Bonus Feature:

     Permanently erase a photo.

How It Works

When a digital camera erases photos it doesn’t actually erase them. Instead, it just forgets where the pictures are located on your memory card. As you take new pictures, the old picture data eventually gets covered over with your new photos.

That’s where CardRaider comes in. By carefully scanning your memory card, it can find and restore pictures that your camera doesn’t see. It seems like magic, but it can save your day.

So now you’re probably thinking about that picture or movie you took. You trashed it using the button on the camera… but it’s really still there. CardRaider will find it. That’s why CardRaider has a bonus feature that allows you to permanently delete an erased photo, overwriting it on the card so that it can never be recovered in the future.

System Requirements:

     Any Mac with Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later
     A memory card reader or digital camera with “PC Mode”.

CardRaider Saved The Day



Thank you. CardRaider saved the day. My daughter just returned from a six
week archaeological dig at the north rim of the Grand Canyon with 453 photos
on her XD picture card.

She began downloading them to iPhoto but something
went wrong. Only 38 of the 453 photos downloaded and the XD card was now
blank. To use the word heartbroken would be a huge understatement.
CardRaider recovered all 453 photos! Thanks again.

Find What Was Lost with CardRaider



During the pre-wedding photo shooting, my CF card on my Canon 400D SLR camera failed. I was shocked and devastated as I did not know this could happen!

However, thanks to my computer expert friend back in New Zealand, we found your site through Google search and within a few minutes and only $19.95 I had all my 70 images on my computer! I watched and listened to a miracle happen!

Thank you Ken to you and your staff for this opportunity to have “found to which that was lost” as the New Testament states!

Kind regards,


               -Joy van Lier

CardRaider Recovered All 309 Images



Just home from a big wedding of our best friends’ daughter. I filled a one gig SD card at the ceremony and know I got some fine images. Stuck my card in the card reader and it showed zero images on it. Imagine my disappointment.

CardRaider immediately recovered all 309 of my photographs in about five minutes.

Thanks for saving the day for us! I will tell all my photo friends to keep this in the tool chest!

               -Dave Doolittle

CardRaider Recovers Minolta RAW Files



Hello! First, thanks for making a great product.

When my 4GB card full of wedding photos was corrupted, it recovered nearly all of it. (Minolta Raw off of a Maxxum 7D).

I tried three different card recovery programs (very few support Minolta) but only yours was able to recover pretty much everything.

Will You Need a Memory Card Reader?

Some cameras allow memory card access when connected to your Mac via the USB cable supplied with the camera. With other camera models, such as Canon digital cameras, this is not possible and a memory card reader is required to use CardRaider.

If you don’t know for sure, download the CardRaider Demo and check to see if your camera is recognized.

If you need to get a card reader, check out our card reader suggestions.

CardRaider will be available through Jan 1st 10PM PST via a link on this page.

Moods have a relaxing effect, the gentle sounds lying just below your consciousness. It features an “iTunes-like” look and familiar operation.

SonicMood comes with 37 pre-defined Moods AND you can create your own! Each Mood is original and never repeats – you won’t find anything like this on a CD…

SonicMood includes 21 nature soundtracks like rain, thunder, birds, and more. You can add your own, too. Up to 32 AIFF, MP3, MP4, etc., files can be played together with the sounds in each Mood.

System Requirements:

  • Mac OS X v10.4.11 thru 10.7 (PPC or Intel; Universal Binary)
  • Quicktime v6 or higher
  • Minimum 1024 x 768 pixel resolution display
  • Speakers or headphones
  • Best results will be achieved with a 700 MHz G4 or faster

  • What people say about SonicMood:

    “Best money I think I’ve ever spent. Wonderful, generous, brilliant and expansive…”

    “As much as I like Pzizz and its approach, I find myself going to SonicMood more and more since it can do so much more.”

    “Only those without a soul will fail to appreciate how this little gem can transform one’s immediate environment into a veritable Garden of Paradise. It’s absolutely breathtaking!

    At $10, it’s an absolute bargain. Definitely worth two or three times that price. Been using it for years, now, and it’s one of the very few software programs that has definitely enhanced the quality of my life.”

    “This outstandingly beautiful creation is a true balm for the soul. It generates soothing, centering, healing soundscapes that will enhance the quality of your life.

    The developer must, indeed, be in touch with the Source of all Creation, for Sonic Moods is a true gift from On High. It glistens like a diamond lotus in the morning sun.

    While Sonic Moods has been with us for a while, if you’ve never come across it before consider yourself blessed, for it is a true find.

    This wonderful developer is always seeking ways to make it better and better, and at the paltry sum of $10, it is priceless. I humbly bow before this very gifted soul.”

    “Truly the best relaxation software around. I’ve used it through a few versions and have never been disappointed that I registered it. I’ve had communications with the author and he’s been responsive and quick to reply. While the software works ‘out of the box’ it has a tremendous ability for customization to one’s personal tastes. Truly a great app and well worth the price!”

    “Rulle Rusk here. Last year I made some comment about this app being pointless. Since then my girlfriend has left me, i lost my job and my dog died. I have moved to Miami Beach and live a quiet, tranquil on the beach with SonicMood running around the clock.

    I was wrong. My apologies.”

    Mellel

    A powerful, reliable word processor, and a long time favorite with writers and scholars, for long document writing.

    Normally: $39.00

    ZOT Price: $19.00

    Click to MacZOT Try Now  



    Mellel is a powerful and reliable word processor for people who are serious about writing. Mellel was designed to allow you to create long and sophisticated documents – from a book to a dissertation… or just a letter to your aunt (she’s on Facebook, though).

    Do not let Mellel’s speedy launch, nimble performance, or humble footprint mislead you – there are no bells and whistles, but there is power. In fact, we’ll openly claim: Mellel is the most powerful word processor for the Mac OS.

    Your documents should look the way you want them to look

    Looks matter, and Mellel has no competitors when it comes to controlling the way your document looks and creating consistent, predictable, and beautiful looking results.Consistency and predictability are the most important things when dealing with text and images.

    In Mellel, flexibility when setting columns or text does not come at the expense of of getting the results you want to get: Images with text flowing around them stay where you set them to stay, columns stay balanced, and headings don’t go strolling down the page just for fun. Looks matter, consistency matters even more.

    And stay in control. Get your documents in order, and keep them ordered

    As your document gets longer, it gets harder to keep all things in it in order. Mellel’s superb Outline feature is just the tool to achieve that. The outline pane gives you a bird’s eye view of your entire document, and lets you, tells you where you are, and lets you move things around easily.

    To streamline your document’s content, you can view elements such as captions for figures, tables, charts, and so on separately – and review them one by one.

    Another excellent streamlining tool is Mellel’s find: It allows you to create GREP-like searches, save them and create sets of Find Actions – allowing you to perform dozens of searches all at once.

    Headings are much more than you think

    Headings are easy, right? You just click the right style (in Mellel, the right auto-title) and there you have it.

    But with Mellel you can achieve so much more: you can set your title to look differently than its numbering, set which headings will be numbered and if they’ll reset the numbering, set headings to always appear at the top of the page, add a running header that changes dynamically, insert tabs and line breaks in a heading (but not in the ToC), set the content of the outline (to include just the title, for example), force appending body text to headings, and so on.

    With most of those, Mellel is the only word processor that allows you to do this automatically and reliably. You control how your document headings look, how the outline will look, how your Table of Contents will look, and so on. Once you’ve tried this with Mellel, it would be tough imagining how you could do without those up until now.


    Cite with ease and power

    Mellel offers you an easy way to handle citations and bibliographies, keeping them always in check, and preventing this delicate task from becoming tangled and annoying.

    The Bibliography palette in Mellel allows you to view all the citations in the document, navigate to them, switch to a bibliography manager, scan, unscan, rescan, etc. Scanned and Unscanned citations in the text are highlighted, and you can open them and easily set special options (e.g., page numbers, omitting author or year).

    Finally, there’s the bibliography: You can use the preferences to set how it will appear in the document, move it around in the document, and otherwise manipulate it.

    View Mellel tutorials here…

    General Features

    Mellel offers you a rich and advanced yet easy to use set of features for word processing. The following list highlights some of the features in Mellel.

  • Track Changes
  • Easy to use and powerful Outline pane
  • Outstanding Bibiliography and citation support
  • Tables
  • Sort
  • Bulleted and numbered lists
  • Advanced Find and Replace
  • Advanced Hyphenation
  • Advanced multi-lingual support
  • Cross reference
  • Columns and sections
  • MS Word import and export
  • RTF import and export
  • Insert special characters
  • Live document statistics (word count)
  • Image placing and resizing
  • Document setup and info
  • Outline and Document navigation
  • Full screen mode
  • Smart Quotes (Typographer’s Quotes)
  • Writing the great American novel? Or just a small one? A scholarly book? A complex document? A play? A technical guide? Mellel offers special tools to help you write and organise long documents easily

    Multilingual Support

    If you need multilingual support or are writing bi-directional text, Mellel is just the thing for you. Arabic, Persian, Hebrew and Syriac never looked better on a Mac

    If “none of the above” is what you need, Mellel is still the right choice: reliable, time-tested, clean, and stable.

    Notes from the developer -
    “Your copy of Mellel from macZOT is a permanent license with free unlimited updates. For example: People who bought Mellel via MacZot in June 2008, and in 2009 ALSO got a permanent license. Essentially, the deal with Mellel is simple: You get an application on par, or better, than MS Word, for a fraction of the price MS Word costs. The reason for that is also simple: Because we think word processors are basic, essential tools and they should be affordable.”

    Regards,

    Ori Redler

    System Requirements: Mellel 2.9.1 is compatible with Mac OS 10.5 or later. It will not run on Mac OS 10.4.x or earlier.

    DigiPrint brings simplicity of creating and verifying the fingerprints or hashes of any file on your computer system. DigitPrint supports: MD5, SHA1, SHA256, SHA384, SHA512, RIPEMD128, RIPEMD160, CRC16, CRC32 and ADLER32 hash algorithms. It also provide the capability of HMAC (Hash-based Message Authentication Code). This is a specific construction for calculating a message authentication code (MAC) involving a cryptographic hash function in combination with a secret key. As with any MAC, it may be used to simultaneously verify both the data integrity and the authenticity of a message. DigiPrint supports HMAC-MD5, HMAC-SHA1, HMAC-SHA256, HMAC-SHA384 and HMAC-SHA512.

    From a file security and integrity perspective, the fingerprint of a file is a coded string of binary digits (generated by a mathematical algorithm) that uniquely identifies a data file. Used in detecting tampering of electronically transmitted messages, a digital fingerprint (just like the analog fingerprint of a person) cannot be reconstructed from any other digital fingerprint. It is because two files that differ even by a single character will have completely different digital fingerprints.

    Features include:

    • Verify and validate files downloaded match the hash value from the original source
    • Ability to save all hashes for each selected file to a text file
    • Ability to specify default hashes to calculate
    • Ability to specify default directory to store created text files
    • Ability to drag and drop files to have hashes calculated
    • Ability to create hashes for folders and application bundles (1.0.3)
    • Ability to save and restore screen position (1.1.0)
    • Ability to perform Side by Side comparison of Folders/Application Bundles (1.1.0)
    • Side by Side compare supports drag and drop (1.1.0)
    • Improved performance and reported cosmetic issues corrected (1.1.0)
    • Multi-platform support:Mac OSX and Windows XP and higher

    System Requirements: Mac OSX 10.5 or later.

However, we have also seen the celebration of Hanukkah and will soon see the start of Kwanzaa. I am feeling festive so I am going to add 8 percent (8 days and nights for Hanukkah) and 7 percent (7 days of Kwanzaa) making for an extra Merry 40% off sale!

    Happy Holidays to everyone and enjoy the savings :)

    ZOT Price: $14.95

    Click to MacZOT Try Now  



    Welcome to Scrutiny’s first MacZOT!

    Improve the quality and search engine ranking of your website by checking your images, your internal and external links, generating an XML sitemap for submission to search engines, validating your html and making essential SEO checks such as page title, headings, meta description and keywords.

    How does it work?

    Feed Scrutiny your homepage URL and watch it follow internal links to find all of your pages and carry out checks from the same viewpoint as a search engine robot.

    What will it tell me?

    • It will check images, all internal and external links and report the server response code for each.
    • It will highlight problems with colour and tell you which page(s) each bad link appears on.
    • It will list all of your pages and export this information as an XML sitemap conforming to the standard protocol for submission to search engines.
    • It will use the w3c html validator (or your own instance of that free software) to check your html validity.
    • It will make essential SEO checks such as page title, headings, meta description and keywords.
    • It will allow you to manage as many sites as you like with different settings for each.

    How does that help me?

    Fixing these problems will improve your visitors’ experience and improve your search engine rankings.

    Visualising your site’s structure as a graph will let you easily spot pages which are ‘out on a limb’ or not as well-connected as they could be.

    Testimonials

    “Thanks for the great tool, I think webmasters who don’t need advanced options … can make great use of it to spot main on page problems and remove obstacles to high rankings!”
    – from review by Singley via Macupdate

    System requirements

    Mac OSX 10.4 or higher, Intel or ppc. Crawling very large sites will require more resources and internet bandwidth than smaller ones.
