    Please help!! I have lots of important photos etc in the memory card however i damaged the screen on my s4, got it fixed and when i put the sd card back in it says 'damaged sdcard try reformatting' I don't want to reformat it because ill lose everything and i cant lose them. Please is there anyway to recover the data on the card?

    Place it in a card reader and connect to a windows pc. Right click the new "drive" select tools and run error checking which should hopefully repair the file system. Always back up SD card data especially with Samsungs!

    Use the chkdsk fix, if the windows error checking doesn't fix it.
    Works for me all the time when my SD's play up

    If you recover the files on your SD card, make a backup copy on your PC. It can save you a lot of greif later. Also make a backup of your phone data and apps and save that to your PC. BEFORE THE NEXT CRASH!

    Download HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool. It has dug me out of a hole several times with unrecognised cards. You will have to reformat that card but as nothing further has been written to it Recuva should work. If it doesn't there are no other options that I am aware of.
