Recover photo/video files from corrupt SD card

#1 Post by charlemagna » 14 Apr 2019, 21:04

Hello and thank you for this wonderful disc recovery tool.

I have a 32GB SanDisk SD Card and was using a Nikon D3300 camera when it became corrupt. I am using Windows 10.

When I run PhotoRec it only gives me an option to access the HDD of my laptop.

I am trying to access the SD Card through a USB Disc Card Reader, and when I use File Explorer it says "Please insert a disc drive into USB drive D:"

Any advice? Thank you

The electronic part of the SD card may be damaged, you should contact a data recovery company.
