Why is your sd card not working

Step-by-step guide to diagnose what happened that caused your SD card, microSD card, SDHC, or SDXC to fail.

step 01

Aside from improper insertion/ejection, interrupted formatting of the SD card, accumulation of bad sectors and manufacturing defects, physical damage and corruption of its file system remain the main reasons why a memory card can fail. So first inspect the SD card for damage.

step 02

If no damage was found externally, it is most likely that the problem is logical. You can try to restore your SD card's data by connecting it to a computer and running SalvageData's data recovery software.

step 03

To effectively diagnose a memory card for logical and other problems, as well as, if necessary, safely transfer data from it without the risk of deleting them, it is best to contact SalvageData's professional data recovery technicians and request a free evaluation.
