    Micro SD Card Not Recognised


    Hi I got a new micro SD card size 512 GB, and put it in my mobile and was transferring files and all was well till all of a sudden Es File Explorer crashed, after that my phone never recognised there was an SD card inserted.

    I removed it but wasn't able to unmount it, then I tried it in my PC and windows would not recognise it either, I tried doing a disk check but nothing came up so I checked in Device Manager and properties, and all it showed was a mass storage device, so it was just recognising the card reader, but not the card inside.

    Hope I explained it well enough and someone can help thanks.

    What brand is this card & where did you buy it?
    Fake micro SD cards are common which misrepresent their brand & their size are common particularly on eBay & Amazon marketplace (but not from Amazon themselves).

    Then you should probably return it to MyMemory for replacement.

    Welcome to Windows Ten Forums!

    Do you have another computer where the Micro-SD adapter (if needed) and Micro-SD card can be checked?

    Hi yes already checked on a little laptop I had, and it won't recognise it either just wondering if there are any free programs out there to fix this sort of thing thanks.

    Try this:

    Corrupted Micro SD Card Repair Tool/Software | Free Download - EaseUS

    If no go, I would suggest exchanging the Micro-SD adapter (if it came with it) and/or the card.

    I've seen the same problem when 2 or more machines don't properly recognize the little card, it could be the adapter that comes with card to enable use in a computer's slot. The same small card can be used in cell phones for storage, maybe it was formatted there and the computer doesn't like it. SD/SDHC cards for use in cameras have to be formatted in the camera as the computer formatting messes them up even though Windows and other OSes can work with them.
