    Hi. i had a similar problem and found a solution. i have an htc thunderbolt, and randomly the sd card became damaged it was appearing as not there, or occasionally it would work for as few minutes. luckily i could still access the files on my win 8 pc, so i saved the important stuff. i tried a reset, and that didn't work. so i did what i dreaded to do. i opened settings in my phone and tapped erase SD card. the files are gone, but now my phone can read my sd card. probably on too many drops so yeah, now to recopy over my music. ps, if music copying is a pain for anyone, if you only have a few songs to send over, send yourself an email with the songs attached. i found that to be far preferable than trying to deal with HTC drivers in my win 8 pc.

    Hi. Had same problem with RAW error when attempting to use chkdsk to fix an SD memory card trashed by my Galaxy S3. After much pain using the following solution I recovered everything from my card. Haven't tried to reformat card yet but my main concern was data. If when using the chkdsk command, get an error "The type of file is RAW. CHKDSK is not available for RAW drives", try the following.

    I'm only a junior member so can not post a link, but if you search for a tool called ZAR (=Zero Assumption Recovery) - search "zar raw" will bring up a site from where the tool can be downloaded with instructions etc - warning it is very geeky but it worked ! First time I used it showed me a graphic of my corrupted card with 100% bad sectors and the tool hung up and crashed my laptop. After rebooting etc, had another go and the graphic showed my sd card with nice green sectors and blue dots of good data. After about an hour of processing the tool finished and had a list of all my files recovered (about 99%) some music was scrambled but was more worried about data. The files have to be saved to another drive (NOT to ORIGINAL SD Card). Now have my data back. Will post how I get on reformatting the card. Good luck !!!

    Hi, i have the same problem with "corrupted sd card" , but when i use chkdsk /x /f on my I: drive, it will take a looong time to reach the Volumes part and then it shows me this error: The wrong volume is in the drive. Please insert volume into drive I:.
    For the first few tries or without using the /x part, it will reach the "0 percent completed" and then just finishes without doing anything else.
    Any ideas as to why any of this is happening?

Read through and decided to give it a shot... AND.... It worked for my situation... I followed the steps you provided and the card was restored with ALL data in tact. One happy camper here!

    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......

    I tried this but it said it couldnt find the file specified even when my phone is connected as mass storage

    I have a 64GB samsung evo class 10, suddenly stopped working on note 4, cant mount/detect by fone.
    I accessed the card via laptop says 28gb used, but when i copied or scanned the files its just 12gb
    Camera - 16b++ - says empty folder
    Camera (0) - 12gb ++ - copied from old phone

    I tried scanning with malwarebytes,nod32 and avg but no malware found.
    I tried checkdisk using right click, but after 6hrs didnt finish. so i cancelled.
    i tried checkdisk command suggested by users on the first page but takes too long.
    after 1hr++ - Windows is verifying files and folders
    after 30mins ++ - Corruption was found while examining files in directory \DCIM\Camera\ (0)
    after 30mins ++ - Corruption was found while examining files in directory \DCIM\Camera\ (1)

    This is the folder with 16gb on it and was used by the Camera. I am leaving this on for the day.

    Any info why this happend? anyways to fix this?

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! This worked perfectly. My Samsung Galaxy S5, and my laptop kept giving me the message "Damaged SD card" and asking me to format it. I had just transferred over 500 pictures from an old phone, and then deleted them off the phone, so the only way for me to get them was from the SD card. I did exactly what you said, and it worked!!! I just transferred the pictures to my laptop, and I am so happy! These are important family pictures from 2015, and I was so sad that I might be losing them.

    Try this everyone, it works!!

    tl;dr: class 10 -> bad ! class 4 -> good! ;-)
    (well, bad for MY android device; but not bad for a photo camera device for example)

    The (permanent) solution for me, was:
    I replaced the microSD card with a class 4 one!
    I had a class 10 one which would "Damaged SD card" often! especially after (re)boot!
    Now with the class 4 card, no more errors!

    i have a problem... my SD card could not be detected to my Lenovo s930, i don't know whether it is my device's problem or the SD card problem?
    i have tried to mount my SD card to other phone, although there got showed SD card, but could't move the data into SD card, how to determine whether device or SD card problem?
    and of cause i have tried the recommended way given by mukundrathod111, it was good and no any problem during this process. but i remount the SD card into my phone, it still showed no memory card.
    anyone got suggestion about this? I'm so depressed right now.
