SDHC card corrupted?

Hello,

I have a Samsung 8GB Micro SDHC card that worked just fine until I tried to use an old Micro SD adapter to connect it to a friend's computer.
When I tried opening it I got a I/O device error. afterwards I tried to put the card back in my phone but the phone couldn't recognize it. Tried several phones and none recognize it. I also tried to plug it in to my own PC with an adapter that I always use successfully but I get the "insert a disk" error.

I read somewhere that old SD adapters can't read new SDHC cards, but nobody mentioned the card getting bricked like that from using old adapter.

Any ideas? Is the card completely dead now?

  3. I would try a linux live disk and repartition/format with a linux partitioner. chances of recovery are starting to look bleak.
