dead sd card fix!
Now, my sd card fried itself and wouldnt for the life of itself show up in card readers, my phone, ect... i nearly gave up on it.
But then it occurred to me, when my xbox died, all i had to do was over heat it and i could get a few precious hours out of it, so taking this theory and having access to extremely hot battery backup units at my work i gave it a try.
so step 1, locate a hot surface, im talking over 100 degrees fairenhight,
step 2, place the dead sd card on top of the hot surface, i choose to put the leads up but you can put it whatever way you want.
step 3, set it and forget it! i left mine on there for 2 hours.
step 4, return the sd card into the phone, and mess with mpount/unmount sd card and BAM! if there is any hope for you, your sd card should recognize and you SHOULD be able to recover your files.
*NOTE* i could not get my sd card to get recognized directly in a card reader, it ONLY worked plugged in my phone, so experiment with this and let me know how it goes!
