  • microSD card
  • Just got back from the Grand Canyon and other points in the great Southwest. When I went to download my first microSD card, the computer requested that I format the card. Now I know that will wipe out the pictures stored on there, but it could be recoverable with a recovery program. I have been looking for a free program, but all I can find is "free to use" programs, meaning I can download the program to see if the files are recoverable, but then have to pay to actually recover them. I have yet to find one that will tell the charge before I start. Anybody know of a free recovery program that is not loaded with spyware, or what kind of rate I should expect?

  • I have a micro SD reader that is like a thumbdrive that you plug into the usb port. It came from Amazon and is by Sabrent. You just plug it in and read it like a memory stick. copy and paste pictures to your hard drive. Works like a charm with most picture cards.

  • If the card was in the camera while taking the picks could you put it back in the camera and download via USB camera to computer? Take it Walgreens and try it there for prints and/or a CD. My computer shop recovered scads of photos and Family Tree from my recently burned up putter and charged just $39.

  • Its strange that your camera would not have formated the card or warned you that it need to be done. But its too late for that.

    I use Lexar Photo Recover, but they want $$ for it.

    One freeware recovery program that I know about, but have not tested is EaseUS Free and Easy Photo Recovery. If you get desperate you might try it. Use it at your own risk.

  • Re: microSD card
  • It is a 2G micro card that I have used for years. Never more than 150 pics per event. This time I got about 350 pics on it before it was full. I wonder if that could have done it. Can you get them too full? How much does Lexar cost? some kind of a sliding scale?

  • Did you try to put the SD card in a printer to see if it will read it?

  • Our current printer is a Canon Pixma, and if it has a card slot, it is not in a user friendly location. I have tried it in a different computer, and get the same results. Also have tried patch cord to the camera and card reader slot on the computer. I will try an old HP printer that I still have that has a card slot. Thanks for the suggestion

  • Took the card to Wal-mart and tried it in three of their kiosks. would not read it. so I came home and looked at the EaseUs site. Had a lot of grammatical errors, but I started the process, and found it was 54 dollars to continue. So I tried the Lexar site. It was much cheaper, about 33 dollars, so I ran the free scan and it showed that there was nothing retrievable on the card. Thought I'd tell y'all in case anyone else runs into problems like this. The camera was Samsung, and the card was Sandisk. Card would not reformat, either.
