Hello kumkaus,

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 SD card 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. You could also try opening your SD card with data recovery software.

Good luck.

Hi Kumkaus,

Sadly, you may be facing some SD card failure and data recovery may be really hard. Try checking the SD card on another OS. I would use a Linux Live CD. Sometimes it grants enough access to backup data or format the device. If you have photos in the SD card, you should not try formatting it, because you will erase all your data.

Hope this helps
