my sd card damaged
This is a bad incident, as my phone dropped from my hand onto the ground suddenly my phone's display got cracked and the micro sd card of 8gb came out of its own from my phone. Due to sudden dropping of my phone data on the memory is lost.
Whenever I insert this sd card using card reader into computer it always asks to format, as a new sd card does.

Please help me to recover my data.

Maybe I'm lucky but I've never had any problem with sd card even many years old.

Anyway I'm sure it's not a durable way to store data.

Besides all these problems, you should be really careful about fake sdcards. There are just too many of them. And it's really hard to tell if a sdcard is fake. I wouldn't want to save my picture or data on a knock-off product.

I've had a run of bad luck lately with sd cards, even name brands. Over the last two years I've burnt through 5-6 of them. Various different failures and lost data. I wonder if I'm primarily getting the fake ones this thread mentions.

Is there any way to verify the authenticity of a card?

I try to make sure to buy from a reputable retailer and not from smaller sellers. Nothing against most small sellers, but enough of the time, even when I'm buying an item listed as "Genuine" I have gotten fakes. This goes for things like camera accessories, batteries, etc.

For example, I would buy a card "Sold and shipped by Amazon" but not one sold by a no-name seller on the Amazon marketplace.

In addition, I try to cross shop several retailers to see what a "reasonable" price should be. If most sellers have the item listed at ~$60 and I find it for $23.99 online... I feel that in most cases is probably too good to be true.

Saving a little bit of money isn't worth the risk of potentially losing ALL of my data.

I try to do backups regularly, but sometimes it isn't always possible or I forget.
