2GB Wii compatible SD stopped working

Hello

 

I've bought an SD card quite a while ago,

and it has just unexpectingly became unaccessable.

I can't view or retrieve any of my lost data.

 

I need to know if it's possible to recover my lost data from it

the data is on the chip, but there's no possible way I can access it

 

this data is extreamly important and valuble to me

I've tried recovery software, and that doesn't even work

 

Disk size: 0kb

File System: unknown

This may not help if you can't access the card, but Recuva, recovery freeware available at CNET downloads, is highly regarded.

Re: 2GB Wii compatible SD stopped working

nice software Smiley Very Happy

I could've used this when my 160GB SATA HDD went RAW -.-

 

that aside, this didn't do anything fo my SD

it shows up, but no files can be ripped from it...

 

I think there's a fried resistor or something

it's the same behavior as my old 8GB flash drive

(fried the resistor for a completely different reason than the SD (my fault)) Smiley Tongue

Re: 2GB Wii compatible SD stopped working

hmm...

yea thanks Smiley Happy

 

the only possible way I could see getting the data off the card,

is to build a new card and insert the chip from this one onto the new card...

then insert it into a comp and retrieve the data.

 

unless there's some extra formatting involved to code the card >.>

 

anyways...

would something along those lines be possible??
