SD card RAW & no partition found

#1 Post by Fixins » 09 Jun 2015, 19:08

So the mini sd card in my phone stopped working. I'm using an adapter to plug it into my laptop and fix it. First off my system asked me to format the card, I cancelled, went online to find some help, followed a tutorial on using testDisk, I tried it a lot, with the 64bit and 32-bit version & running in windows 7 compatibility mode (because i'm on a windows 8 machine) and normally.

Each and everytime I got the end statement "No partition found or selected for recovery". I opened up disk management and it shows a healthy primary partition. I'm stuck now on what to do next, please help me recover the files, ask for anything that may be of help.

Thank you

There shouldn't be any reason to run testdisk in a compatibility mode.
All supported OS's are listed on the homepage.
The 32bit version is recommended.
Do you know, what file system did you use before?
I assume it was FAT32 (most standard)?
Can you copy and paste the content of your testdisk.log into your next post?
I opened up disk management and it shows a healthy primary partition.
Does your card appear in your disk management console as RAW?
It means that a partition would be available but unformatted.
Please don't format it.
I'll check your current partition structure (partition table) and if a partition would be available to consider to run a boot asector diagnose?
