    So my SD card got corrupted during the formatting process and now it wont even read on my computer. I've done some research on how to resolve this issue and they all point to the chkdsk command prompt, but its kinda difficult to do when your computer doesn't recognize the SD card's presence. Any other suggestions?

    Welcome to Android Central! If the card can't be read by a computer, it's pretty much dead. If there's valuable data on the card, you could try bringing it to a data recovery specialist, but those can cost quite a bit.

    If it's a SanDisk card, go to SanDisk microSD Tech Support - live help is at the upper right. (Any card you'll still be using is still under warranty.)

    If it's another manufacturer, contact them, but don't hold your breath.

    (SanDisk will replace defective cards, but recovering data from one is a long shot at best. If the controller chip [inside the card] is gone, there's no way to access the memory chip, so there's no way to recover the data. SanDisk might be able to, but you're talking about thousands of dollars of cost.)

    This is why anything important should always be backed up.
