Hi folks,

I got this 16G sdcard that from one day to another it stopped being recognized saying "blank card or has unsupported file system"

Besides the data, I had some applications installed on it.

I did tried to recover with a software, but even the software only can recognize space is occupied, but can't see it.

Anyone have any possible tip to share?

Thanks

You can try GetDataBack application
Once I accidentally deleted many fotos from my camera sd card.

To recover it i used GetDataBack windows application. With the free version you can search your sd card and see what files it can find. It found all my photos at the time.

But at the moment you press the recover button, it requires you to buy it for 80 dollars :'(
I suggest you to download the GetDataBack FAT version and see if it can find your files.

If it works, then you have to decide if you'll buy it or not. After recovering the files, the file names were all wrong. But at least i got to save my pictures

Hope this helps you.

On Unix/GNU/Linux or whatever you call it, you can press CTRL+H to show hidden files, then there usually appears .recovery or .lost or similar where the deleted files are stored.

If not try this search for a lost data recovery Android app:
google. de/search?client=ubuntu&channel=fs&q=recover+deleted+ data+android+app&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&gws_rd=cr&ei=xVA-UuWtBom10wWjrIHQBA

Or use one of these Open Source programs:
  • cgsecurity. org/wiki/PhotoRec
  • kickassundelete.sourceforge. net
  • zdnet. com/blog/digitalcameras/how-to-recover-deleted-photos-from-your-sd-card/1102
  • boards.straightdope. com/sdmb/showthread.php%3Ft%3D395724


Hope this helps a bit.

I bet you it's a Kingston. But you should tell us what it is and what devices you've been using it on, when it failed??
See this: SD Corruption in Xperia Z

The tool to use for recovery, if at all possible, is ZAR 9.2.

Other good tool for recovery partitions: search for "disk internal partition recovery"

Recuva!
Recuva is a great option. I've never used it to recover data from an SD card, but I HAVE used it successfully to recover date from my Windows machine when the hard drive crashed and all my data was deleted, and it has the ability to recover SD cards. This product, unlike some of those already suggested that are only free to download and analyze your system, is TOTALLY free.

download: piriform. com/recuva/download

Please delete the space in the above links to follow. I'm too new on XDA to post links yet apparently!

Hope this helps!
