I recently connected my USB card reader to my laptop with my Micro SD card and never had any problems for a long time now, but it started to do a scan which I hadn't seen before, so I cancelled it. Since then my laptop does not recognise my USB card reader and it does not show up in my computer when i put it in, and in disk management it just shows up as "no media" and is completely empty. I also get the message "please insert disk into removable disk"
After downloading a data recovery software, that told me there was no data found but what it did show me was that my removable flash drive is now in RAW format, which I know isn't good! How can I convert the drive back to it's previous format, I'm not sure if it's meant to be NTFS or another? Is their a free simple program to use to do this? My data is on my Micro SD card still and shows up on my phone, just nothing at all now is shown on the laptop.
I am not that clued about this, so hopefully this won't be too difficult to fix! Appreciate any help.
