Is it possible to retrieve the data from a corrupt SD card?

Asked by rangerr (15746points) February 12th, 2010

….I assume it’s corrupt.
I have no idea, actually.

It’s a 2GB SD card.
It worked fine an hour ago, then I tried to put it back in my laptop, and I couldn’t access the files. Computer: “REFORMAT, NOW”. Me: <dies>

I tried it in my camera again with the same results.

They both recognize it, but I have no desire to reformat the card to please them.
There are some pretty important pictures on there..

Is this a lost cause?

I suppose that it’s technically possible, but it would be pretty expensive.

It depends how much you want the data. A company call ibas offer data recovery and the prices rage from £99 to £699 depending on the process they have to use. If you are in the UK, data recovery is also available in some PC World stores.

Maybe bribing it, since it’s corrupt and all? XD
