Memory card corrupted? Don’t panic just yet!
Often, while transferring data if the memory card
is taken out or if the power is shut off, it tends
to get corrupted and unusable. We’re going to
tell you how to fix corrupted memory cards ,
using a few common solutions that could solve
your problem. But keep in mind that completely
destroyed or physically damaged memory cards
cannot be fixed easily, neither can data recovery
be done from them other than using
professional data recovery solutions which can
be really expensive. For situations where the
memory card is not recognized or cannot be
used due to incorrect formatting, here’s what
you need to do!
Memory Card Corrupted
Memory Card Corrupted – The Problems
Problem 1 – Memory card can be read but not
When you take out a memory card during data
transfer, the file structure can get scrambled
and ultimately, your device or PC might not be
able to read any data from it. However, the
actual data is still present in it. This memory
card corrupted can be fixed by the doing the
Step 1 – Plug in the memory card via an
adapter, card reader or any way you can to
your computer.
Step 2 – Check if the memory card shows up
in File Explorer, it most probably won’t be
accessible but will have the right file system
and everything. Note the drive letter path.
Step 3 – Open command prompt, preferably as
Administrator and typed “chkdsk x: /r” without
the quotes. Here, X is the drive letter of your
memory card.
Step 4 – Let the process complete. If it asks to
“convert lost chains to files”, type “y” for yes.
If only the file structure was damaged but not
the files themselves, you will be able to get back
all your files and use the memory card like
normal again. Yep, the usually annoying
CheckDisk tool can fix one memory card
corrupted problem!
Problem 2 – Memory card shows invalid file
system (RAW)
A corrupted memory card can also lose its file
system and cannot be used because it’s not in a
file system that Windows recognizes. The
simplest solution for this memory card corrupted
problem is a format. Here’s how you go about it:
Step 1 – Connect your memory card to PC via
adapter/card reader.
Step 2 – Locate the removable storage media
in file explorer, right click it and click
Step 3 – Set the file system to “FAT”, not
FAT32, NTFS, exFAT or anything else as most
portable devices are compatible only with the
FAT file system. Leave the allocation unit size
as it is and uncheck “Quick format”.
Step 4 – Click format, let it finish and your
memory card should be good as new!
Of course, formatting a memory card erases all
data so make sure that you have a backup or
you have recovered the data.
Problem 3 – Memory card cannot be read by
Even a problem like this one can be fixed quite
easily by simply downloading updated drivers
from your PC manufacturer. Always make sure
you have the latest drivers and updates and if
you’re running an assembled PC, grab the latest
motherboard drivers.
There could be another problem as well. Newer
cards are SDHC (high capacity) and are not
readable on regular SD card readers. Make sure
to get a SDHC card reader and updated drivers
for it installed in your PC if you want to access
the memory card on your PC. It’s the same case
with the really high capacity SDXC (Extra
capacity) cards.
If none of these are the cases, and even after
the obligatory plugging in all ports doesn’t work,
then do the following:
Step 1 – Insert the memory card into the card
reader/adapter and plug it in to your PC.
Step 2 – Go to Device Manager via Control
Panel and look for any devices that show up
with a yellow exclamation mark (!).
Step 3 (a) – Right click the faulty device and
try to automatically update drivers. If you are
unable to, uninstall it, remove your device
and restart computer. Alternatively, you could
also right click and click “Scan for hardware
changes” once it’s uninstalled.
Step 3 (b) – If your device still doesn’t show
up, go to the “View” tab and click “Show
hidden devices”. Now you might be able to
see more faulty or greyed out devices. Right
click, uninstall them and restart your
computer with the device unplugged.
Step 4 – Once it’s booted up, plug it in again
and it should be recognized.
Oh also, make sure that the little lock on the
side of your memory card is not engaged.
The above steps will most probably get your
memory card fixed, unless it’s completely
damaged. Finally, if nothing works, the only
solution is to buy a new memory card. Although,
it would be a good idea to try and recover your
data using a tool like Recuva. Leave us a
comment and lets us know if you have any
queries about fixing your corrupted memory card.
