Testdisk and PhotoRec both not finding sd card

#1 Post by taypas123 » 27 Dec 2015, 06:50

I have been trying for hours to recover deleted photos off my sd card.
But the program is not finding it. I have redownloaded both 7.0 and 7.1 multiple times and it doesn't find it.

I'm using a MAC.

Any insight,
It is really bothering me as it is all our family Christmas Photos?

When you start PhotoRec, choose Sudo if some disks aren't visibles.
If it doesn't work, the problem is probably hardware.
