stuck on disc identification?

#1 Post by dirtyelf » 24 Feb 2014, 18:06

when i plug in my corrupted usb drive, it recognizes it as a "SM324BC Memory Bar" and does not come up as a drive in my computer

when i run photorec, it sits at "Disc Identification, Please wait..."

am i doing something wrong, or is my disc totally fried? how could that have happened?

the disc is 1GB by the way, its not large

thanks for any help you can offer

The memory card/its controller is physically damaged. Software alone can't help in this case.
You need to contact a data recovery company.
