Hello Mhmmdadnan62,

Please, follow these steps:
1. Open command prompt
2. Type the following:
attrib -s -h -r X: /*.* / s / d Then hit "Enter" and wait about 30 seconds
Be careful! Respect the spaces between words and script. Change the letter X with that has been assigned to the USB device on your PC (that you can see it in My Computer. It can be anything, depends on each computer.)
3. Finally, browse the flash drive and delete the "RECYCLER" folder and if there is another one called "Autorun" you have to delete that too.

Tell me if that helped you. Cheers.

Hi again,

Actually, I'm a sis, not a bro. ;) Sorry to read that this didn't help you. There are many people that perform the exact command and have no problems with their SD cards afterwards.
I also know that there are many people that manage to get access to their cards through a data recovery software. I believe, there are some programs on the Internet. As a last resort you can try formatting your SD through a Linux Live CD.

Good luck.

Hey,

If you type in the browser "How can I create a LiveCD/LiveDVD/LiveUSB?" I'm pretty sure you could find the answer that fits your needs completely. :)
Just a reminder: when make the bootable drive and plug it in your PC, don't install the Linux, just use the options that gives you this OS. Before that you have to change the boot priority to CD /optical drive/ or USB ports.

Good luck.

Hi Guys,

I know this is an old thread, but in Windows 10 the command is as follows:
attrib -s -h -r X:/*.* / s / d

Note the lack of a space between the X: and the /*.*
Im not sure if this slight adjustment is needed for previous Windows versions. Also I opened the Command Prompt with Admin privilages.

Hope this helps others.
