The memory card that the last podcast was recorded on is corrupted. It is a SanDisk Ultra microSDHC i 32GB. Does anyone have any expertise in recovering files? It is an mp3 file that is maybe 80MB in size.

I ran the card through Recuva and all that showed up were hidden files the card uses internally.

I ran the card through SanDisk's programs RescuePro and FileRecovery. It found the other mp3's that were saved on the disk from previous podcasts, but not the most recent one.

The recorder was stopped and turned off in the usual way. The card was removed later. When put into a card reader it showed up as corrupted and no files could be found on it. No new files have been saved on the disk, so nothing should be overwritten.

If you have any suggestions or special equipment, help would be appreciated.

Thanks, but had the same results with Pandora Recovery. All it found were some older folders and ReadyBoostPerfTest. Pandora Recovery also tried to hijack my homepage, default search, and new tab page. It doesn't give you an opt-out during installation, so i wouldn't recommend it to others even though it is free.

Wow, how scary! And sorry about the trouble it caused to you.
I think the last time I used Pandora recovery was a couple of years back at which time it wasn't that nasty. It was always giving awesome results back then.
