Re: Corrupt sd card

Hi @Cltrx, sorry to hear about this. Slightly frowning Face

Do you have another device that you can try the SD card in, or if you can connect to it to a computer and see if it can be read there. What we need to figure out is if the SD card is corrupt, or if it's only your device that says that it's corrupt.

You can also try with a different SD card in your device, if you have a spare one or if you can borrow one from a friend, colleague or family member.

Keep me posted!

Re: Corrupt sd card

I don't have an extra phone and can't get hold of a friends. Is there any rescue programs or a repair method.

Re: Corrupt sd card

Hi @Clazze, sorry for the late reply!

That is great news! You may want to backup the content on the SD card when you have the opportunity, in case the SD card is on it's last leg!

Regarding your name, if you have logged in with another account, you will be asked to create a new account, so you most likely choose another log in method this time.

Have a great Friday and an amazing weekend! Slightly smiling Face

Re: Corrupt sd card

Try to connect your SD card to the computer.

If it doesn't work - use that algorithm how to fix corrupted memory card.

If your SD card work on the computer - save it's files and try to repair it with chkdsk. If it doesn't work - format it with diskpart.

Re: Corrupt sd card

We had a similar issue with our Sony phone where it corrupted the memory card and in the end after trying Multiple software recovery tools and two other data recovery companies used a company called Recoverfab in Germany. These recovered all the photos/videos from the SD card and were quick and very helpful.
