|"In "Disk Management" It shows (SD Card) Disc 1 Removable 1.87 Online (F:/) 1.87 GB RAW Healthy (Primary Partition)"|
That indicates Windows is seeing there is a ~ 2gb manufacturer's size SD card in the slot (1.87gb is it's binary size - the same total number of bytes - the mboard's bios and Windows, or any operating system, always see a drive's total data space, or a drive partition's data space, as it's binary size), but when it detects it's partition data space or the entire data space as RAW it's not seeing that it has data on it. That's caused by there being damaged (corrupted) data on the SD card - the data that indicates to Windows that the partition is using, probably, the FAT32 partition type for a 2gb card and that it is formatted is corrupted.
Windows IS seeing it has a Primary partition, so that part of the data is okay
The RAW partition type is what Windows shows in Disk Management when there is no data or partition type that Windows recognizes (on the device that data can be stored on), or in the case of a memory card or flash drive or external drive when Windows "thinks" there is no data because data on the drive indicating that is corrupted.
Similarly, when you install a new internal hard drive, it has no data on it, it's data space is shown as RAW, until you make at least one FAT32 or NTFS partition on it and format it in Disk Management.
"BUT in "Computer" or "My Computer" It doesn't show that anything is in F:/ drive. If I right click on F:/ drive IN both "Disk Management" and "My Computer" and click open or explore it says insert disk into F:/'"
When Windows detects the partition type as RAW in Disk Management, the partition contents cannot show up in Computer, or My Computer, or Windows Explorer.
In the case of a memory card, it's the drive letter of the card reader's slot, not the card itself, that shows up in Computer, or My Computer, or Windows Explorer.
Similarly, for a floppy drive or a CD or DVD drive, it's the drive letter of the drive, not the disk in the drive, that shows up in Computer, or My Computer, or Windows Explorer.
In the case of a partition on a hard drive, or a partition on a flash drive, no drive letter at all shows up for it in Computer, or My Computer, or Windows Explorer, if Disk Management is detecting the partition or the data space on the hard drive as RAW.
Regarding the data repair programs in response 9, I have not used any of them myself - they were recommended by others who answered on this site. Testdisk may be the best free one of the four. There are other ones as well. Read their Help info once you have loaded them. Some programs may also have Help or t-shooting info on the parent web site of the program.
If you were to send a PM (Personal Message) to OtheHill on this site, who is a forum moderator, he probably has other ones he can suggest you try and going by what he has mentioned I believe he may have had experience with using at least Testdisk.
There are many free or paid "undelete" programs out there, but many of them cannot repair corrupted data that indicates to Windows that there is a partition type on the memory card (or flash drive, or external hard drive) that Windows recognizes and that the partition is formatted.
Since you seem to be having other problems in Windows on the Dell 573S, you may be able to more easily fix the problem with the two SD cards by using a repair program on the laptop with them.
Part of the problem is Windows allows you to re-format a partition on a removable drive - on a memory card or a flash drive, but it does not allow you to delete the partition and make a new one. If the data that informs Windows that the card or the flash drive has a partition that Windows recognizes on it is corrupted, then you can't re-format the drive partition even if you don't care whether you will delete whatever data that can be recovered from it - you have to use a third party program to do that (unless you do something to Windows that allows you to NOT treat a partition on a removable drive as one on a removable drive , which is NOT recommended).
You CAN delete a partition on an external hard drive and make anew one, but that's of no help if you have data that you know is on it that you want to recover.
