I’m facing an issue with my 6 months old SD card and I need help to recover some of my pictures/videos.
My 32GB MicroSD has become corrupted in my phone. I have attached it to my laptop (running Windows 7) but its requesting I format (to be more precisely I had to use an USB card reader in order to be recognized by Windows/Linux as the common adapter didn’t work).
I have ran chkdsk /r but it returns an error saying my SD card is now a RAW file system (error “Chkdsk not available for RAW”). It was a FAT32, so it seems to be corrupted and became RAW file system.
Using the SD FORMATTER V3.1 (https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_3/)) it says that are available to “format” just 30.81 MB and not 32 GB. Of course I didn’t format it till now.
I tried using different recover’s software in the market but without success.
I’ve already contacted SanDisk and after just 5 minutes of talk they said my memory card is broken and need to change it. Also they offered an international company called LC TECHNOLOGY to recover my data but they are charging an amount of 275 USED to “try”. I paid 140 EUR for this memory card relying on SanDisk reliability and trust. However, I feel like I bought a generic brand as my problem was “just another damaged memory card which need just to be change”.
Any help on this would be highly appreciated.
