If you have problems with your memory card in 80% of all cases the controller of your card is damaged and no software or card reader can help. You must separate the memory chip and dump the raw data to recover your data, look here: CF xD SD memory card/stick photo recovery

Repairing a corrupted SD card.
If the SD card is corrupted then it will be because it has boot sector errors. Download DriveRestore Professional and you can scan your corrupted card for errors... you can then repair the card's errors when the product is activated. You can download a free trial at: www.pcrecovery.com/driverestore

don t format in the name of GOD!!!
Please all keep in mind>>>> drive recovery pro is a nice solution,but formatting a hard drive is ok,and important.NOT A SD CARD!!!The continous files are different from the usual hard drive files!!
NO NEED FORMATTING!!!
In fact>>formatting an SD card lower the life time of the card with a good year or more!!Anyhow they made to survive only around two years!!!
The continous upload and erase sssions are killing the SD card.BUT FORMATTING IS TH BIGGEST KILLER.Check the experts,what they say???

Corrupted cards can be deffected from factory as wel,but drive check and restore is the best.The sectors are damaged,and not the fragmantation....

Repairing a corrupted SD card.
DriveRestore Professional will not re-format a corrupted SD card. Formatting is NOT recommended as formatting will erase all the data on the SD card. DriveRestore Professional will analyse the boot sector (that ALL drives have e.g. FAT16 and FAT32 file systems on an SD card), it will detect errors in the boot sector and then repair the errors. When the card is repaired, ALL the files will be accessible and the card is fully repaired.

Sometimes the filesystem on the card gets corrupted. It can happen for example if the card was ejected while a file operation on it was in progress. When that happens you might have trouble accessing some of the files, loading times for some directories in file explorer may be very slow.
You can attempt to fix it using the desktop windows' built-in chkdsk utility.
Open up command prompt (start->run->cmd.exe) and type
chkdsk /X /F <SD card drive letter>
My SD card reader is X:\ drive, so i wold use the following command:
chkdsk /X /F X:
SD card reader is recommended, but probably not necessary because it should also work with WinMo's built-in USB mass storage function or wm5torage.

Under linux you can check/fix the card's filesysterm and in some cases undelete a file using fsck.vfat or dosfsck (single tool, two possible names). Refer to its help for more details.
