A microSD device is a digital storage device used in many Mobile Phones Cameras and MP3 players. It is a smaller version of the standard SD memory card, about one-quarter its , and has a storage capacity that ranges from 128MB to 4GB. In order for you to read files inside the microSD card using your computer, you need either a microSD card reader or a microSD card adapter. Insert the microSD card into the microSD card reader and make sure that the card is properly connected to the device. Plug the microSD card reader into a USB port in your computer and wait for the computer to recognize the device. Use a microSD card adapter to read your microSD card if you do not have a microSD card reader. A microSD adapter basically looks like a standard SD card but is designed to accommodate a microSD card to fit the SD card slot. Simply insert the microSD card into the microSD adapter and then plug the adapter into the SD slot in your computer. Plug the SD card adapter into an SD card reader if the computer you are using does not have an SD slot. Consequently, plug the SD card reader into a USB port in your computer. Use your phone to read your microSD card. Plug one end of the USB cable that comes with your camera or phone to the mini USB port in your device and plug the other end to a USB port in your computer. When you are prompted that the device is recognized, install syncing software (if applicable). Many cameras phones and MP3 players can be connected to the computer without using any software. Navigate to the location of the removable drive.
Open the folder to see if you can browse the files in the microSD card.

Your Samsung laptop might not be able to recognize this microSD card as it might be damaged internally.

I wont go on posting links to our many many stories about this topic unless you all request me to, as many sites see this as spam.

We are developing tools to help those people that are having major issues with loosing data on microSD cards. Many of the cards produced these days are becoming damaged, bent etc. There is no rhyme or reason for these issues, they just happen. microSD's showing a size of 31MB is becoming common, it's a bad situation, it means the card is badly damaged. You will need assistance from an educated professional. :) Yay, right? Well there are some that DO know what's up here. This I promise. :victory:

We are consulting directly with NASA and act as the primary lab for such cases daily, we are in business for over 15 years. There is a sense of desperation these days in dealing with damaged and lost data on microSD's. We are at about a 45% success rate no matter what has happened to a microSD. Many of them are reported as the wrong size, many are not recognized and some have obvious issues such as breaks, cracks etc.

No matter what others say anywhere there is hope for you all that have major issues. microSD cards are considered monolith devices (monolithic). USB sticks and regular SD cards these days can be made with NAND wafers or a complete package, what we call in the industry a monolith storage device. We can get inside these devices by taking off layers with special machinery and we also can use many other options to get around the damage.

I am also looking to collaborate with others on this topic that are engineering minds with experience on this topic. It's a big problem these days as we dig into iPhones, SSD's etc. We are dealing with all storage devices, mostly new technology and we have a global network with some amazing gear-heads to solve all these problems... but I am trying as fast as possible to increase the success rates and expand knowledge on such data recovery cases so please let me know if you are interested in staying in touch ongoing.

I will only say below in my signature who we are and hope we can share and help this thread and community with future success stories, if anyone has questions and MUST have a solution feel free to reach out to me/us.

My Canon PowerShot A480 isn't recognized by my Mac. I don't have a memory card reader on my comp - oddly, an old no name camera prompts Canon software to open as soon as it's plugged in t


ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS AND VIDEOS TO A COMPUTER
If your photos and videos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos and to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

My CANON Power Shot SD1100IS is no longer recognized by my laptop. It was recognized before, but one day it stopped working. The battery is okay, i tried locking and unlocking the card but nothing seems...


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

I cannot get my new laptop to recognize my canon eos rebel camera. Software is installed, drivers are there but the computer doesn't see the camera when it is connected and turned on.


Best fix for this is to purchase a Card Reader and step around downloading from the camera. A card Reader is looked at by the computer as an external storage device. You place the memory card into the card reader and down load from there. Don't forget to stop or safely disconnect or eject before removing your memory card. Once you have placed the memory card back into the camera Format the memory card to give the camera a fresh clean surface to work with again.

What is happening is that the firmware of the camera is no longer compatible with the "new" software from the computer.

Even though you may not have updated the software in the computer if it's hooked to the Internet then sometimes there is auto updated and these are what sometimes causes the problem with incompatibility.

Also if you haven't updated the camera Firmware now would be a good time to look see what Canon has to offer as free updates in Firmware for your camera it's a free update.

Clean the contacts of the memory card with a pencil eraser - it might be dirty and not making a connection inside the camera.

In the short term you can take the memory card out and use a card reader - at least that will let you see the pictures.
