Recovering corrupt flash memory cards

The good thing about paid-for photo-recovery software is that they have an easy trial-model; they show you the images and videos they can recover and you stump-up your $50 to register the software and get at your pictures. I've had varying success with a coule of paid-for apps but I came across PhotoRec yesterday (it's part of a larger suite of tools).
Now, granted, the pay apps have nice GUIs while PhotoRec runs in the UNIX shell in a text-based interface, but it requires little interaction and gets the job done. It also runs on just about any common OS platform from Mac OS X to Windows to Linux to Solaris, etc. Link in the title.
