I have a Sandisk Micro SD card, my friend fell my phone and then suddenly my SD card says "Mount SD card" "Insert SD card". I tried to remove and put it back again but nothing happened.
I also tried putting it in a SD card reader but when I plug the card reader it always says "USB not recognized". Please do help me with this problem! :(

Hey there, barosejade.

Although it's pretty difficult for a Micro SD card to get damaged when a phone is dropped, due to its slot and tiny size - it's not impossible. It really sounds like the memory card might have failed. If you don't need to recover data from it, you can try to reformat it via Disk Management if it's recognized there, or try using the manufacturer's format tool, to see if it can detect it and format it, so that you can use it again.

Hope that helps.
