Can I recover data from undetected sd card

#1 Post by SiaRa »

I have an sd card from my samsung phone and suddenly it doesn't recognize it anymore.
I tried inserting it into the computer, but it also doesn't recognize it.
It's not getting a station letter (like C: or D: you know)
It's also not shown in Disk Utility.

If I start either Photorec, Qphotorec or Testdisk none of them displays the sd-card, only my hard drives.

Is there still a way to recover the data from the sd card?
I really hope so!

It seems to be a hardware problem, the flash controller may be damaged. You need to contact a data recovery company.
