Hello and thanks for looking
Im having serious issues with my micro sd card. Its for my droid and i have so much data on it not backed up :( ((
It started when i went to delete a folder with about 1gb file size. My file manager app took a bit longer than usual to do this so i ended up force closing.
And the app was still hanging so i rebooted. Once everything loaded again the sd card wouldnt read.
I put in in a usb card reader and my pc wont read it. After about 5 minutes an icon with a drive letter assigned shows up but the total space and space used bar isnt there. My "My Computer" screen has a load bar at the top like its trying to read it but it never results in anything
I tried doing chkdsk in command and it just freezes and doesnt do anything
I tried data recovery software, it makes the application freeze until i remove the usb with my sd card.
So i cant even format it to get it to read
I did plenty of searching and i still cant find anything regarding my specific issue
Ive also rebooted my pc, same results

Anyone have any insight for me or is my micro sd card dead along with my data?
Thanks in advance!

Oh also ive tried the usb reader with another micro sd and it works fine so its not my reader

My daughter's microSD card recently died. (droid couldn't see it & computer couldn't see it) She was upset as she had many photos on the card that she hadn't backed up. We found a suggestion on the last paragraph of this page:

http://www.rocketryforum.com/showthread.php?34010-Dead-...

We didn't believe it would work but decided to give it a try. We had no alcohol handy so put the microSD in a saucer and drowned it in WD40 and left it overnight. Following morning we wiped it dry on a sheet of kitchen roll, and left it for an hour. Then preheated our oven to 220 degress Celsius and put the microSD card on a baking tray and placed it in the oven for exactly 15 minutes. Removed the baking tray from the oven and left the card to cool for an hour then put it in a USB card reader and - it worked! Just a few of her photographs were corrupted but more than 95% of them were saved. We shan't be trusting that microSD card again and she has already bought a new one but both amazed and delighted that this idea proved successful
