I have been asked by a friend to try and recover some holiday pics from her SD card and am looking for some good free software, I'm not sure if she has formatted or not but think she has. the thing is when putting the card in to my card reader it is not being picked up by the PC.
Admittedly it is a cheap TEVION SD card but never the less it has her precious holiday memories on it.
What is the best free software to download and use, or will this not make a difference as the card is not being picked up by my PC.
If you can't see the card in your PC then it could be a duff card or you need to reset your SD card reader. Sometimes when you use a card slot and remove it whilst the PC is switch on, without using the Remove Hardware option, then Windows thinks it still there, so when you put another card in there it can't see it. Select the Safely Remove Hardware option on your Taskbar and double click it, then from the Window that opens, highlight the one for the SD card, and click stop. Now reboot your computer and it should see the card.
If it's a duff card then you need to find a recovey specialist company to recover the data but may cost around £200. Do a internet search for a disk/data recovery company.
