Hi José and welcome to you!

Where are you located and what is your mother tongue? That might make it easier as we might have someone right near you who can help you out!

Anyway, I do not use a Nikon or know the errot (CHA). Someone else may.

Very often software can recover the disk. Do you have error recovery software?

What card reader are you using?

We need to find you PC repair software. I use a Mac and that's no good for you.

Does the CF card even appear on your PC desktop?
