Damaged AVCHD card help?

Damaged AVCHD card help?
Hey all-

Long time reader first time poster. I'm really desperate for help. Here's my dilemma. I have a damaged AVCHD SD card that I used to shoot a video for a client and can't seem to get the footage converted. I've looked in many places for help but nothing has seemed to work.
Here are the details: I shot the footage using a Panasonic HMC 150, at 1080/24p, I have an iMac 10.6.6, edit on Final Cut Pro 7. I originally tried to use Log and Transfer, like I usually do, and it came up with an error message. So far, to recover the footage, I've tried to L&T from a copied version of the SD card I have on my hard drive, that didn't work. I tried converting the MTS files using Roxio Toast- That didn't work. I tried Clipwrap. No deal. I'm thinking of trying Voltaic. I've been in contact with someone at Panasonic who is urging me to use AVCCAM Restorer, which I haven't tried. I'm afraid. I've read in some forums that the AVCCAM restorer will erase the contents of the card.
So...What do you all think? I really need to get this project finished, I'm already passed deadline and I'm running out of options.
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

If you think the card is corrupt, try cardrecovery.com. I haven't used them, but I know Adam and Ray have and it's worked for them.

Good luck.
