Resolve ‘Memory Card Error’ and recover photos from memory cards

Since the storage memory of the SD memory cards is huge, at the same time data loss from these cards is also huge. One of the main reasons for data loss from SD memory cards is corruption of these cards. In most cases, you receive an error message after your card gets corrupted. However, an updated backup allows you to overcome data loss due to card corruption. But in case of unavailability of backup, you can use photo recovery software to recover data from a corrupted memory card.

Usually we receive an error message “Memory Card Error” while attempting to view some previously stored photos on SD memory card.

Every single photo saved in the memory card becomes inaccessible after the above error message appears. In addition, no more photos can be saved on card. In short, the card can not be read or written upon.

There are few other reasons that are accountable for the above error message. They are virus infection, interrupted read/write operation, and human errors.

Recover lost images from a flash camera memory card

Most of the digital cameras in use today, make use of a flash memory card, for storage of the pictures taken using the camera. The flash memory cards come in different capacities, with the memory capacity ranging from a few Megabytes to a few Gigabytes. The memory card is no doubt an extremely useful storage device, but if not handled with care, it might create some trouble for the user.

The most common reason, for loss of photos from a flash memory card, occurs when the memory card is unplugged from the PC in an improper manner. In such situations, the user ends up pulling out the memory card from the card reader, without disconnecting the device correctly. The second most common reason for loss of images from a flash memory card is due to accidental formatting of the memory card. But there is nothing to worry, as you can still recover images from SD card using a good recovery software.

In both the cases, make sure that you stop further use of the memory card, to prevent further loss of data. Remove the memory card from the camera, and seal it securely.
