|"On fixing the issue( reinserting the card) the card could be read, but then a new problem arose that is i could only read my songs and videos, it showed the images folder to be empty which had a few hundred images. On inserting it onto my PC to check if i could recover them, my PC also said images folder is empty and now on checking the videos folder it said the videos folder is corrupt and thus cant open."|
Data was probably damaged on the card. If you had used a specialized program that can repair data damage at that point, you could probably have repaired the problem and gotten access to all or most of the files that you know were on it again.
However, you did this....
"i let windows scan and fix the problem( fix bad sectors etc) "
but it didnt solve the issue. windows made a separate folder called FOUND000, which contained files of the type FILEE0001.CHK to FILE2694.CHK which cannot be opened(unsupported file type)"
You have probably destroyed the chance of being able to recover the data, by using specialized programs that can do that, for files that the *.CHK files are for, when you did that.
The *.CHK files can be read by Notepad (RIGHT click on the *.CHK file and choose Open with, then Notepad, if that's available in Windows 7), but usually most of or all of what you see is characters for programing language, not easily readable text. You're usually unable to determine which file the data in the *.CHK file was originally in.
