I was downloading a firmware update onto the card when the program froze. Now when I put the card in any computer it says it needs to be formatted. The problem is all my son's Nintendo DS Pokémon progress was also on that card. I'm definitely out of the running for father of the year. Disk management says the file type is RAW. Any help would be appreciated.

The easiest method is scanning the SD card with Easeus Data Recovery. It will let you recover 1GB for free. After that you need to pay for a serial key.

 

The freeware way would be to do the steps here. Do not write anything as noted in the guide. Download Testdisk for Windows 6.14 and unzip to a folder on your desktop. Do a Quick Scan and see if it detects any partitions on the drive. Press upper case "P" after highlighting any partition detected. If you see the files listed you can select them with the ":" key and then use the upper case "C" key to copy. Or you can use the "a" key to select all files. In Testdisk your SD card would probably iisted as sdb.

 

The default location of file recovery would be the folder you unzipped Testdisk to.

I used Easeus. I had to pay because there was more than 1GB but it was worth it. Thanks again.
