|I have a SanDisk 16GB MicroSD HC card in a SanDisk adapter. I use it in my digital camera.|
I spent the day taking important pictures that will not be able to be re-taken. When I got home, I ejected the card from my camera and inserted it into my laptop. I was ready to open it and therefore accidentally clicked Enter when it said I needed to format the card. A pop-up came up saying the card could not be formatted. After ejecting and reinserting the card, it says that the card needs formatted before it can be used.
I asked my more computer savvy friend to see if they knew what was wrong. They said they would try using a recovery program, but would need to format it first. They inserted it into their smart phone and tried formatting it that way, with no success.
I think the images are probably lost, but just wanted to get a second opinion. It would be very awesome if anyone knew of a way to copy the deleted files or anything, as it will be quite troublesome if they cannot be recovered. Thank you in advance for your help and suggestions.
EDIT: When trying to open the card in recovery program a pop-up says
D:\ is not accessible.
The volume does not contain a recognized file system.
Please make sure that all file system drivers are loaded and that the volume is not corrupted.
