SD Card Failure

Recommended Posts

For the first time since entering the digital format in April 2009, an SD card has failed.  It is a Sandisk Extreme Pro 32 GB SDHC UHS-II.

 

When I inserted it in the card reader, none of the files were useable.  The error messages indicate that the file info had been truncated.

 

I re-formatted the card in the camera and took some photographs.  Everything seemed fine, but when I inserted the card in the reader, it came up blank.  After huge anxiety that it was the camera and not the card, inserting a different one worked perfectly.

Try a different reader before writing off the card.

The UHS-II should also have come with access to Sandisk's RescuePRO software, which might be able to retrieve files.

 

I've had no cards fail in use since 2005, but have lost count of the number of dead card readers I've had to throw away.

I tried two card readers plus the USB cable with the same results.  Fortunately I only had taken a few photographs in the garden, so the loss was a non-event.  And the others, after formatting the card in the camera, were taken to test the card, so no loss at all.

 

And as I said, it was a huge relief to find that it was not the camera, which had only come back from repairs a week or so ago!
