Corrupt SD Card - Error Reading Sector

#1 Postby ChrisB » 31 May 2012, 05:30

Hello, I was using a 16GB SD Card on a trip when it stopped working the last day and now none of the photos can be accessed. If I load the SD card into the built in card reader in a PC or MAC in won't mount or be recognized. When I use a card reader along with PhotoRec, it will show that there is a 16GB card, but I keep getting "Error reading sector" throughout the scanning process. Any help would be gladly appreciated! I have attached a photo of the screen scanning in progress.

I can't see the picture you attached, but this could be a failure of the flash or a controler corruption. Are you able to copy the card (bit to bit copy) with ddrescue under gnu/linux ?

Hi Remy, my computer skills are limited and I am not sure how to do what you describe. I am thinking of taking the card into aRecovery House, hopefully they will have better luck with it than I have.

We have had good feedback about RecoverFab, in Germany. But I have no proof of their efficency, I don't know them.

If you want, I can do a free diagnose. If necessary, I'll transfer to recoverFAB. If not, I'll charge you with "free pricing" (you decide the value of my job) and half the amount will go for Christophe Grenier and free software developpment.

I appreciate the offer Remy, but because I am in the United States, I think I will try a place that is more local. I am also trying to get the manufacturer of the card to reimburse me for any costs that I many incur for the recovery process.

Cheers,
Chris

No chance on this side, I think. Perhaps they will give the value of the card, but not more.
