6D video files deleted after improper shutdown

Issue #1943 new
Former user created an issue

Had a shoot today using 6D with Sandisk Extreme 32gb 45/mbps card. Played back several clips during the shoot, no issues.

Shut down camera, went home, ejected card, plugged into Macbook and the card shows 0 files. Tried 2nd Macbook Pro and same issue.

Put card back into camera, turned it on, got a ML message saying "improper shutdown, skipping modules" (happened 3-4 times in the past few weeks). Pressed playback button, camera says "no images"

Hoping disk recovery software works...

    Never froze or had any issues besides an increase in frequency of improper shutdown messages from ML.

    I think only on reboot after dumping media to computer. Unfortunately don't have log files as I deleted ML for safety on upcoming shoot

    hmmm... sounds like its something with your card readers since the magic happens after reading/dumping the media. You should also wait for the LED flash before removing the card.

    Someone else had this issue and they also had mac + sandisk
