card cannot be accessed canon 5d mark iii

My camera5d mark iii and my iMac can't read or see my CF card 32GB and I have Data inside this card and I won't format it. Is There A Way or another to let my camera or my PC read my card again?

 I have recorded my video footage by 5d mark 4 on this card, So do you think my 5D MARK 3 or my Lexar 3.0 card reader couldn't read my data because it is a different format?

Can the Mark IV read the card?

Three devices can’t read one device. Sounds to me like a bad card.

I don't think you can. If nothing recognizes the card there is no way to access whats on the card. You could try a different card reader or maybe go to a computer store that has a tech support desk.

 

If you are in the US Staples or Best Buy would be two possibilities.

No matter where you are, if it is a top brand CF card, ask the manufacturer if they can recover your file(s). Most will try and sometimes they are successful.

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV, even less and less other stuff.
