Do you need your data back? Is it lost without the password?

Hardly anyone we know besides ourselves can solve this. 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, lost passwords 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 microSD damage or lack of access.

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.

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.

Hi
Put the memory card in your camera and reformat it. How to do this will be different from each model camera so you will need to look in your manual. Note all information pictures etc on the card will be lost.
Hope this helps

They're MADE to be secure. Never password protect one unless you're sure you can remember the password.

Check with the Feds. I'm sure THEY know what's on it...

SanDisk 4GB... | Answered on Mar 09, 2014 | 76 views


Try reformatting it

SanDisk 4GB... | Answered on Jan 17, 2014 | 31 views


Solution one

  • Go to file manager on your mobile
  • In Settings choose system folders,
  • In the System folder, find a file called mmcstore
  • Send the file to your PC using IR/Bluetooth
  • Open the file in Notepad
  • The password you need for your memory card is located within that file

Solution two

1. Insert your card into your phone, without accessing it through the phone
2. Run FExplorer and Open the path C:\system
3. Find the file called mmcstore, and rename it mmcstore.txt
4. Copy that file (mmcstore.txt) to your PC and open it in Notepad
5. Your password will be located within that file.

Connect your SanDisk card with a card reader into computer.If it can be detected in my computer,you can recover your pictures with data recovery software like Tenorshare Data Recovery.It can recover data after deeply scanning your memory card to look for lost data. By the way,you can download it and scan your SanDisk card for free to preview whether your pictures can be recovered.Get it from http://www.any-data-recovery.com/product/datarecoverystandard.htm
When you insert the card into computer and it asks you toformat it before you use it,firstly recover your pictures with data recovery program then format it to make it work normally.

Does the micro sd card been detected by your computer? If not, you may try other card reader, or other computer. If still does not detected, you may try to go to device manager and see whether the sd card is there, if yes, then you can assign a drive letter to the sd card.

Once SD card shows as a drive letter on PC, you can download sd card recovery software to get back your files. recommended asoftech photo recovery that helped me before. download it from link below
SD Card Recovery Software

You can refer to this card recovery tutorial
Recover files from SD Card

If above does not work, you may have to format the memory card (use quick format), and then use Asoftech Data Recovery to scan again the memory card and recover your files.

Hey bro, im sorry to inform you that there is no way to recover your memory card without losing your data. But if you are fine with losing your data, then try this out.
Put your microSD in a nokia E-Series phone. I'll suggest the E-65. Now, go to the memory card in the TOOLS folder and select options, and choose FORMAT MEMORY CARD. It will ask you for your confirmation, press yes if you want to, and it will format your card and remove the password. I hope this works for you. Cheers ! I've tried it out. It does not ask you to put in the old password before formatting. It worked for me !

Micro Secure Digital memory cards, or Micro SD cards, provide storage for a variety of different kinds of devices, including mobile phones, PDAs and cameras. They can be protected by passwords so that the information that you have saved on it is secure. Sometimes, the password can be forgotten or lost. Recovering your password is easily done with your computer and SD card reader on your computer.

Place the micro SD card into your card reader on your computer. Right-click your "Start" button and then "Explore". Find the micro SD card, it will be listed as a removable drive. Click on the micro SD card and the files will show on the right-hand side. Find the file that says " MMCSTORE" and then select "Copy." Right-click on your desktop and then click "Paste." This will move the MMCSTORE file to the desktop so that you can get access to edit it. Right-click on the MMCSTORE and then click on "Open With." Open the file with Notepad. Read the text to find the password. It will be in plain text. Remove the SD card from the computer and place it into the device for which it is used as storage. Turn on the device. When it prompts you for the password, enter it. Hope this helps.
