Boot sector problem and you may run into the following errors like

disk is not formatted, do you want to format it now
chkdsk is not available for raw drives
drive shows 0 bytes
drive cannot be formatted


Here is one solution that worked for me when my sd card has not formatted error and i cannot format it. i restored files with this tool.
