Damaged SD Card from Galaxy tab

#1 Post by vinnievegas » 16 Jul 2017, 03:30

My Tablet has recently gave me a notification saying my sd card is damaged. It will not mount in Linux. Gives me an error... cant read superblock.
I run testdisk and analyze and it gives me this...

TestDisk 6.14, Data Recovery Utility, July 2013
Christophe GRENIER <grenier@cgsecurity.org>
http://www.cgsecurity.org

Disk /dev/sde - 32 GB / 29 GiB - CHS 30543 64 32
Current partition structure:
Partition Start End Size in sectors

check_FAT: Unusual media descriptor (0xf0!=0xf8)
Warning: number of heads/cylinder mismatches 4 (FAT) != 64 (HD)
Warning: number of sectors per track mismatches 16 (FAT) != 32 (HD)
1 * FAT32 LBA 1 0 1 30542 63 32 62550016 [NO NAME]

Warning: Bad starting sector (CHS and LBA don't match)

Any Help would be appreciated.
Thanks

Please use TestDisk 7.0 or better 7.1-WIP. In TestDisk, Advanced, choose List.
If it doesn't work, use PhotoRec.

I was able to recover all my data using other options in testdisk but for the sake of learning I would like to fix this SD card. Is it possible?
thanks
