How to repair memory card


  1. Download and install a data recovery program. The first thing you want to do when you encounter a memory card error is to attempt to recover important files. There are a number of programs available to accomplish this. Photo Rec is a powerful, free option for most operating systems, but lacks a graphical user interface, which can be intimidating for less advanced users. Find the data recovery program you are most comfortable with in terms of price and features.

    Windows XP installed drive):
    - copy usbstor.inf and usbstor.sys placed in WinXP folders (Windows\INF and
    Windows\system32\drivers) on the some location on your disk.
    - plug in device with Vista running
    - when it is not recognized place to location where you saved these two
    files above
    - when you vista recognize mass storage device you will get information
    about inproper INF section, and the second device will be unknown in your
    device manager
    - try to actualize driver for unknown device and point Vista to find driver
    into your c:\windowsvistadir\ [x] with subdirectories

    This problem may be because u have enable some security on ur memory stick if so try this driver
