SanDisk data recovery problems? We have all seen SanDisk low capacity flash drives, high-capacity (16 and 32 Gb) flash drives and SD cards for cameras and similar recording devices.
All products manufactured by SanDisk are robust and can really withstand the dings and dents of daily life. However, they are not immune to the occasional human mishandling, firmware update or … hot coffee! If you are wondering if it is really possible to recover your lost photos from a non-responsive SanDisk data card, it’s time you put your worries to sleep!
We are going to help you with your SanDisk data recovery. Everything from our state-of-the-art recovery laboratory, highly qualified data recovery technical team, proprietary software and data recovery technologies to superfast turnaround times are there in place for just YOU.
We believe, data recovery means “business recovery” for you and we are very serious about business!
So, let’s find out what to do with your corrupted SanDisk storage device.
What Are The Typical Problems And How To Solve Them?
1. Memory card file system corrupted: if it’s an SDHC card and the file system is corrupted, neither your camera nor your computer would be able to read the card. The most common error message is “Windows was unable to complete the format” when you try to format the corrupted card.
Is there a solution to this? If the file system goes haywire, the storage device would not be recognized by your camera or computer. In order for you to be able to do anything, your computer needs to recognize the device first – since, that is out of the question, you can’t really solve the problem yourself.
How to retrieve the data? All you need to do is give us a call. We’ll take your flash device, use our proprietary tools to recover data from the bad sectors ignoring the checksum checks and store the data safely for you. It’s really that simple!
2. Memory Card Error: That is exactly the message you get on your camera or computer screen. Either the connecting heads or the file system has gone AWOL.
Solution? If the connecting heads of your device are off, you could try cleaning the contact points using a DVD lens cleaning solution and then reinsert it into your camera or computer. If that doesn’t solve the problem, you could just let the device rest for a while (if the problem is attributed to overheating) and try again. If it still doesn’t work, you need to give us a call.
How to retrieve the data? If your computer is capable of reading the device even for once, you could just right click on the device icon, select copy and paste it somewhere else. Some data might be lost, but most of it should be available at the new location. However, this is not going to work if the device is not recognized or even rejected (because of your antivirus software) by your computer.
You could send over your device to one of our service centers and our SanDisk data recovery team is going to retrieve every last bit of information from the corrupt device.
3. The device cannot start: If you get this message, chances are that card data structures are corrupted. Just to be sure, wait for a couple of minutes to see if it requests a firmware upgrade. You would be lucky if that happens.
Data recovery: You’d still be lucky if your flash drive or SD card is not readable because we are there to help you.
How to protect your SanDisk storage devices?
SanDisk did confess a couple days back that a couple of batches of bad SanDisk 16 GB and 32 GB flash drives accidentally hit the shelves and in order for them to perform correctly, a mandatory firmware upgrade was required. Now, that was a stray incident. The truth is, most SanDisk storage devices malfunction because of over usage and mishandling.
To protect your SanDisk drives you can take the following precautions:
- Store them in a dust and moisture free environment when not in use.
- Do not store your storage devices near electrical appliances.
- Do not touch the contact heads with bare hands.
- Do not expose the devices to heat.
What not to do if your SanDisk device malfunctions?
- If it is a flash drive, do not tug at the USB connection point in the hope of establishing a better connection. Mechanical shock is going to damage the pins further.
- Do not breathe vapor into your SD card contact heads and wipe them. That is going to create static charge on the contact heads and damage them.
- Do not pullout of a card or flash drive during the writing process.
Why is it a bad idea to try and repair the device yourself?
It takes more than trial and error to recover data from corrupt flash drives! These are precision instruments and improper handling would only lead to further damage. Almost 99% of the time it is possible to recover data from corrupt SanDisk storage devices. If you mishandle an already corrupt device, you further reduce the chances of data recovery.
