    I think I Got it Finally.
    Recovering Data is not the solution Not even Formatting your SD card.
    I have the same problem after some days it doesn't load some Apps in Android when i check it in the settings it shows "DAMAGED SD CARD"
    I tried to connect with SD CARD Adapter slot in my Laptop but still couldn't detect and it asked to Format it.
    I tried to fix it with "CHKDSK" utility but couldn't do it through windows.
    But could do it with command prompt.
    Not if you have the same problem follow.....

    connect your SD card to computer.
    open command prompt.
    How ? .......
    open run from start button
    then type "cmd"
    now type

    chkdsk /X /F <SD card drive letter>:

    If its K drive then

    chkdsk /X /F K:

    It will check your card and will repair it.
    Have patience it will take around 10 min.
    when it is done windows will detect your card evn your android phone.
    Have a nice day......
    tnx my friend it worked!!!! Good job!

    Thanks a million!!! I followed the directions for chkdsk that mukundrathod111 posted, and at the end, when I got the Y/N prompt, I choose Y. Worked perfectly! All the photos were saved. Thanks again.

    Photorec is a great free (donation ware) software from cgsecurity.org. Worked great for me to recover vacation videos from corrupted SD camera card.

    Highly recommended it.
    Is it free?

    hi Bhaskar G,
    This problem in your card is due bad sector exist in ur card. If realy want to use it use 'disk part'.
    Step 1: go to run and type diskpart in it .
    Step 2.: Then when u get the window, type list disk u will see list of disk available in ur pc. just note down ur sd card disk number let assume that the sd card number is 1 (1 disk).
    then type the following into the window showing diskpart> press enter after a command
    select disk 1
    create partition primary
    select partition 1
    format fs=fat32 quick (use ur desired partition methods hear)

    Note:: Doing this will erase all the data in the sd card but card will be working fine.
    Thank you

    Have 32gb micro sd card from samsung galaxy 3. The card suddenly says it was removed. I checked it and it was in the slot exactly as it was supposed to be. But i noticed it was not reading it at all. I tried putting it into my pc via usb holder and also thru the sd card adapter. the pc would not even recognize any drive at all. I have alot stored on the card but am just mainly interested in get all my pics and videos off of it. I have a back up plan with my cell carrier but only a small amount was stored there. Please help! I dont really care if I can save the card, just want to get my picsd and videos off of it first...

    i knew my case might be just coincident but my 32 gb micro sd card was malfunctioned after it passed the airport xray machine last week.
    i tried the chkdsk suggestion in this thread but only some data were retrieved. (2-3 gb out of 10gb of data). meaning trying different data recovery program to see if it can recover more data from the sd card

    yes it is and i use some software recovering stuff to get some files luckily i recovered some but im still trying to fix it.it is visible on the my computer and yes CHKDSK didnt read it cause its says its unavailable for RAW drives.btw is CHKDSK some sort of disk protocol or something like the ones u used for hidden drive files?
    Hey, may I know how you managed to recover some of your files? I had the same problem as yours, when i used CHKDSK to check my files, it can' read it since it is not available for RAW Drives. Do you have any ways to solve for this problem? Thanks

    I had the same happen to me. If the card was inserted directly into my laptop's card reader, that happened. I then tried an SD micro USB card reader (an sd micro slot attached to a standard USB plug). When I inserted it into the laptop's USB port, it was read properly and everything was there.

    This is the second time in 1 month that my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 pulls the "Your sd card is corrupt, thingy."

    Using the CMD prompt in Windows 7, which takes you to a DOS black window, I then typed

    Note- where above an underline _ equals a space, make sure and place your spaces correctly, and on my computer my microsd using and sd adapter came up as a D drive.

    Worked like a charm. Did not have to use Photorec or any other program.

    Saw all the files restored on the card while still plugged in to my computer, ejected the card from my computer placed it back in my phone and everything was restored, programs, pictures, music.

    Btw. The command ran complete and I never received a Y or N question. Just a summary of what was done to the card.

    Thank you.

    Now onto Samsung to find out why this Note 3 corrupts the external card, "just because."

    ok, i have read all instructions...and here is my issue.

    SD card on phone said blank..option came to reformat. i took sd card out and plugged iit into my computer/laptop win 7, did the run-cmd-chkdsk and i am not sure what i need to type...my removalble disk is (E and it is listed under my computer hard drive (C, so i typed chkdsk /c E: and it says "cannot open volume for direct access".

    totally stumped.

    more info: there is nothing on my phone...now..obviously. When i plug in the micro sd to my pc it shows i have a removable disk but a box pops up saying it needs to be reformatted..and says there is is nothing in the disk. Also, i have Recuva...and it says nothing found as well. so its there but its not. Please help. I am trying to save pictures. Unfortunatly i use my phone to take vid and pics of my 2 yr old and now i have none.
