Hello,

I think one of my microSD cards is corrupted.
It is not recognized at all neither by the smartphone nor by my Windows 7 PC.

The adapter I am using to plug it in the PC is working fine with another microSD card, so it should be an issue with the card itself.

list disk

 in 

diskpart

 does not show any additional entry when this microSD card is plugged in, while it showed an additional entry for another microSD card. Does anyone know if I can recover the data somehow from that corrupted microSD card?

If your phone and Windows does not detect the SD card I would say it's dead. Depending on how valuable the info on the card is you will need to consult a professional data recovery service which is not inexpensive.

 

Something you may want to try is booting a live linux disk and seeing if the SD card is detected. Download Mint Cinnamon and burn a DVD. Boot Mint which will run from the DVD and RAM. Attach your SD adapter with the card already inserted. If Mint can mount the SD card a USB icon will appear on the desktop and a File Manager will open showing the contents of the SD card. You can insert another USB flash drive and copy/paste the contents of the SD card to the USB flash drive.

Hi JohnC_21,

 

Thanks for your reply

I tried it on linux, and it doesn't show up there either when I plug it in

Can you point me to some hardware or service which can help me out recover my data?

I don't know your location but one of the professional recover services is DriveSavers. They can cost from $1000 and up. There is a BC member here, DataMedic,which quotes recovery from $400 and up.  I don't know if he deals with SD cards though.
