Files must have the correct extension. i.e. .wav or .mp3 or whatever the music player requires. You may need to convert the sound file to a different type for the device to see it. It may show in one device and not another for this reason

Unrecognized, locked or non functional SD cards can experience many types of issues due to severe damages and or tiny cracks.

When a card is plugged in to a reader and not registered or not registering correctly you might then experience lost files you badly need recovered.

eProvided is developing tools to help those people that are having issues with loosing data on SD cards. Many of the secure digital cards produced these days are becoming damaged, bent etc. There is no rhyme or reason for these issues, they just happen. SD's showing a size of 31MB is becoming common, it's a bad situation, it means the card is badly damaged. You will need assistance from an educated professional. :) Yay, right? Well there are some that DO know what's up here.

We are consulting directly with NASA and act as the primary lab for such cases daily, we are in business for over 16 years. There is a sense of desperation these days in dealing with damaged and lost data on all SD's. We are at about a 45% success rate no matter what has happened to an SD or microSD. Many of them are reported as the wrong size, many are not recognized and some have obvious issues such as breaks, cracks etc.

No matter what others say anywhere there is hope for you all that have major issues. SD cards are considered monolith devices (monolithic). USB sticks and regular SD cards these days can be made with NAND wafers or a complete package, what we call in the industry a monolith storage device. We can get inside these devices by taking off layers with special machinery and we also can use many other options to get around the damage.

I am also looking to collaborate with others on this topic that are engineering minds with experience on this topic. It's a big problem these days. We are dealing with all storage devices, mostly new technology and we have a global network with some amazing gear-heads to solve all these problems... but I am trying as fast as possible to increase the success rates and expand knowledge on such file recovery cases so please let me know if you are interested in staying in touch ongoing.

I will mention below in my signature who we are and what we are about and hope we can share and help this thread and community with future success stories, if anyone has questions and requires a solution feel free to reach out to me/us.

The Elite X has faster read/write speeds (and is more expensive). Otherwise there is no functional difference.

I would suggest you "NOT" to copy anymore files on your SD Card to prevent data loss or data corruption. Stop using it immediately.
Download an undelete program such as Undelete Plus. I think its a free download. and run the
program to recover your pictures. If you attempt to continue to use your SD Card you are at
higher risk of loosing your data.

Make sure nobody put hidden files on the Flash,
Copy the files off, then reformat the flash in NTFS unless you have an old computer.

FAT32 will work, the limit is 4GB for a single file and 2TB for the whole drive. If it was an SD or variation I would have kept with this for compatibility with cameras ect. NTFS for a USB has a couple features that make it slightly more reliable and faster for a situation where you have many small files.

Below is a link to a simple flash formatting tool.

Install the software in your computer.Remove the memory card from the phone and connect in your machine using the memory card reader and scan the card for viruses or malwares.

Then try the Data Recovery Software available in market to recover the files. Install the demo software of the data recovery software( Recover Data for FAT and NTFS) from their particular website. Then scan the memory card using the Data Recovery Software. If the demo software displays all your data you need then purchase their full version software to save your valuable data. Because in demo software you are not able to save the data. Please try the data recovery software for FAT and NTFS partition.

Please download the demo software from the link provided below :

Download the software from the above link and install it. There are two recovery modes available in the software Normal and Exhaustive mode.

deleting files on sd cards is the same a deleting any other file on a computer as long as the media is not protected against file deletion or file altering

usually sd cards as you used to find also in old floppy dics, have a tab or switch you need to set accordingly to allow file overwriting. inspection the sd card and make sure that the tiny switch or lock is in the off position, reinstall sd card in the reader or sd card drive and attempt to delete files by selecting them and hitting the del key or simple selecting them and right clicking to then select delete.

if the tab is in the off position try it in the "on" position and see if deletion can be accomplished. if neither works your sd card may be defective. contact the provider and have the warranty honored accordingly in within the warranty terms.
