Default Solution for unrecognized memory cards

My mobile, for hours didnt recognized my memory card, and i didnt know why that happenned.. I read that the only solution was to buy another SD..
But After reading a lot of forums, and tried a lot of things, I found another solution.
I put my memory card into a memory card reader and connected it to my pc. Even my pc didnt recognize my memory card.. it had an error. so I couldnt even do a back up.. So I clicked right click on My Computer, then manage> Disk management> right click on my card, And then format. I didnt wanted to loose my data so I downloaded "Recuva" and I choosed what things I wanted to recover (after the successful format FAT32, which also made my SD card visible)
And so my sd card was visible again and I recovered whatever I wanted.

Hope I helped... But please do this at your own risk!
Sorry for bad english

You can use data recovery software to scan memory card and then recover your files. First connect memory card to computer with a card reader, and then follow this guide: sd card data recovery

hope this helps.
