There are 50% chances to make it work again.
It may need a so called low level format. A great tool for low level formatting is from HDD GURU,
please google for hdd guru low level format and download the software. It is very easy to use, but please be very carefully when you choose the drive letter to be formatted, because otherwise it can format even the system disk. If this tool does not detect the card, it is almost sure broken for ever and it need to be replaced.

Hope it helped,

if you are sure that u have copied images on UR pc then FORMAT UR MEMORY CARD .. IT MAY SOLVE UR PROBLEM .

Without knowing what the specific error is this is my best guess:

SOLUTION 1 - Unlock the memory card.
There is a Lock switch on the left side of the SD card. Make sure the Lock switch is slid up (unlock position). You will not be able to modify or delete the contents on the memory card if it is locked.

SOLUTION 2 - Toggle the lock switch.
If the lock switch is not on lock:
1. Slide the switch up and down. Repeat this 3 times.
2. Let it stay on the Lock position for 30 seconds.
3. Slide the switch up to unlock the card.
4. Try to transfer files into the device.

f your memory card or flash drive is still functional, you can try using a data recovery program. There is a high probability that your data can be recovered after you get an error while using the card, accidentally format it or delete files. SanDisk recommends using Rescue Pro and Rescue Pro Deluxe developed and sold by LC Technology. LC Technology specializes in SanDisk products and these programs are very reasonably priced.


You can download a demo version of Rescue Pro and Rescue Pro Deluxe. These demo versions will show you what files can be recovered and provide a preview of the files for some common picture file types. The demo versions will require purchase of a license key to enable the feature to save the files. This is an excellent way to see if the program will work before you purchase and LC Technologies is readily available to assist you with this program.

Here is a link to download LC Technology Rescue Pro Demos.

After you recover your data, you can reformat your memory card or flash drive and use it again.

Hi there!
Simply insert the card in it's adapter, then insert it into the memory slot.
However you can buy yourself an external USB card Reader supporting your pro duo card.
Please rate this advice as it's very important for us.
Good luck friend!

You can buy memory card readers very cheap. Ebay is a good source. Just look for a reader for your card model. I use a USB reader, which is very convenient. If you have XP or later operating system it probably will recognize the reader with no software when you plug it into a USB slot. then you just take the card out of your camera and put it in the reader. You may need to have the card in the reader for the reader to be recognized, try it either way.

I assume you have a dvd burner and software to accomplish this. But most burning software will allow you to put what ever data you like on a dvd, pictures, music, video, etc.
The software may ask you at some point, what kind of dvd you are trying to make, and there should be some option labelled something similar to "data".

Sound like your printer is not designed to read memory sticks. You will need a card reader that reads memory sticks. An inexpensive multi card reader for about $10. should do the trick. They only work on a computer though. So you can see/read the files on the memory stick, download them to your computer, edit and/or print them. To me, this is the logical way to do it. The screen on the printer is too small to make good judgement calls on cropping and you can't edit them either.

If it's Bluetooth / Wifi, you have to pair them first.

Are you 100% sure it's a flash?

If it has a usb port, then it could be a bluetooth or Wifi (wireless communications connection) dongle, not a storage flash drive.

A bluetooth dongle will usually have the double W symbol similar to a spiky 8.

If Bluetooth / Wifi:.....
USB has 4 pins - outer 2 are power to the device, while the inner 2 pins carry data traffic only.
Therefore a BT device, Wifi and a flash storage drive need to be connected to USB for powering its circuit board and relaying data.

Try this if BlueTooth:
Switch ON bluetooth on both devices (flash may have a button / switch, or not), most just use "Remove Device" "Safe to Remove" then yank it out to switch off (as no 5V USB BUS power = 0).
Plugging in powers it up. It's functions are controlled via PC's BT menu.

With BT Flash plugged in, go to your computers device settings or the taskbar may have a BT symbol (like two face-to-face W's).

After switching computer BT on, select "search for devices" or similar, depending on your OS.

It may find several BT devices in your area.

Other BT devices such as Mobile Phone can also find a computer dongle by using the external device's menu to "search" while computer is made "visible" (also vice versa).

the speed is more often the nod limited by the device the flash drive is connected to no the drive itself. there isn't much you can do but wait if it's being slow.

It all depends on how it is treated. In your pocket they can last months or days or years. If its the only place with certain data you need a data recovery specialist to salvage it. In the future, you should use at least 2 devices(one cloud based) to guarantee proper storage.

What are you trying to do with the card? Please give specs on card.

SanDisk... | Answered on Feb 01, 2018

I have a dash cam that I can read right from the computer. I have a socket on mine for this very purpose. If you look in File Explorer, it should come up as SANDISK E: or something similar. If you don't have a memory card port on your computer, they can be had for a few bucks on EBAY, and will plug into a USB port.

It is a flash drive. There is no firmware. See... http://www.tech-faq.com/how-a-usb-flash-drive-works.html
