I dropped my hd7 awhile back and now it tells me my memory card is damaged or not found. So could I potentially use this method to recover photos and videos with my PC? And if so, do I need any special drivers or applications for my PC to be able to read the file system on the SD card?

Please modify title to: "Custom ROM only" because I have a stock HTC HD7S from AT&T and I can't use your method because my bootloader is bricked to only one line at the top of the screen.

    Ok so does that also mean we can replace the hd7 card with another of our own purchased from off the shelf?

    ---------- Post added at 04:00 AM ---------- Previous post was at 03:49 AM ----------

    So if the sdcard , can be read by laptop, is IT possible to change its contents like down grade sol, is ECT while the card is in the laptop

    Go check out the sticky on how to upgrade the memory in the HD7 to 32GB...
    you can upgrade it, but you don't need this to upgrade it... This is so once a card is removed from the HD7 it can be used in other things. You can't take it out and modify it etc then put it back in...

    Hi everyone, came here looking for a way to restore my 32GB memory card...

    Well let me explain myself, I tried to upgrade the HD7 memory card to my 32Gb microSD but when I did so the SD became corrupted and couldn't use it anymore, I tried putting it on my PC but it won't show it, it does the sound of something getting connected, but it wont see it... so I found this thread and wanted to now if it will work using my HD7, it's updated to Mango and well to see if anyone here knows where to find the programs needed since the links are broken, thanks for everything and the memory is a MicroSD HC type 2 by Duracell

    The sdcard is bricked , because u did not unlock it before removing it from the phone, the unlocking of sdcard is a seprate thread , it requires the unlock cab from xmod.

    the only way is to fin a nokia or other pda , GPS or camera devices manufactured a few years ago to format the card.
