Micro SDHC cards are the small memory cards often found in cell phones, handheld GPS devices, digital audio players, portable media players, digital cameras, expandable USB flash memory cards etc. With the wide use of Micro SDHC cards, the data loss issue has become more common and more severe. Following are some of the scenarios under which photos from the Micro SDHC card are likely to be lost.

Possible scenarios which may cause photo loss from MicroSDHC card:

  • Improper Storage Issues: Even though the Micro SDHC card indicates that it can store certain number of photos, in actual it may be storing less photos than that number depending on the resolution of the pictures you are clicking or the exposure settings. As a result the SDHC card may become corrupt resulting in photo loss because of being overloaded with images than its actual capacity.
  • Accidental Deletion: Photos from SanDisk Micro SDHC card can be deleted because of common common human errors like deleting the pictures while just previewing them in the digital; camera, accidentally formatting the SDHC card etc.
  • Due to Format Error: Sometimes errors like “card not formatted” may be encountered when you just connect the Micro SDHC card to the computer via card reader and simply try to open it. This type of error may arise due to some kind of corruption which makes the data stored inside SanDisk SDHC card inaccessible. Improper usage of the SDHC card such as pulling out the card from the card reader when the photos are being downloaded or transferred can also give rise to this type of error.

  • File system corruption: SDHC cards use the FAT32 file system architecture. The file system of the SDHC card can be corrupted due to various reasons like accidental system shut down, instant power failure or virus attack. The entire SDHC card structure will be unrecognized if the file system is corrupted or damaged. Hence, the card may show several error messages while being accessed such as  “ This device cannot start”
    “ Memory card error”
    “Windows was unable to format the card”
    “I/O device error”

Things you must avoid doing

  • The moment you get a problem with your SDHC card, stop using it right then. Continuing to take photos on a corrupted SDHC card will decrease the chances of recovering the inaccessible photos on it.
  • Do not install the photo recovery software on the Micro SDHC card itself, because; it may overwrite the actual content of the card resulting in permanent photo loss.
