Anyone know any tips or possible steps to try to recover a corrupt sd card for a cell phone. Every time I turn mine on it says sd card corrupt format to fix. It never goes above 20% formatted though. I have tried it on the computer as well and still nothing. I'm hopin there was a way to still use it. Any ideas or am I buyin a new one. ???

I have used this method before and worked for me. be very careful how you use it

Repair corrupted Pen Drive or SD card using CMD
This process involves Windows command prompt which is commonly known as CMD. In this, you have to enter some CMD commands, and Windows will forcefully format your corrupted pen drive/SD card.
You cannot see attachments on this board.

  • Connect the corrupted pen drive or SD card to your computer.
  • Hover your mouse over the Start button and Right-click.
  • Click Command Prompt (Admin). A CMD window will open.
  • Type diskpart and press Enter.
  • Type list disk and press Enter. A list of all the storage devices connected to your computer will be displayed.
  • Type select disk <the number of your disk> and press Enter. (Example: select disk 1). Important: Make sure you enter the number correctly. Otherwise, you may format your internal hard drive. You can type list disk again to check whether you are going correctly. There will be a star (asterisk symbol) before the name of the selected disk.
  • Type clean and press Enter.
  • Type create partition primary and hit Enter.
  • Type active.
  • Type select partition 1.
  • Type format fs=fat32 and press Enter.The format process will finish in a few minutes You can write NTFS instead of fat32 if you want to carry files larger than 4 gigabytes. Don't close the CMD until the work is finished.



Hey, thanks for that. I may try it later today. If you don't see me again for a day or so you'll know I picked the wrong drive, lmao. :P



I have not tried it yet. Possibly tonight. :)


I am still gonna try this, just been a bit busy. ;)


Hmm I wouldn;t be relying on that card for anything important, even if 'fixed'. Just saying.
I reject your reality, and substitute my own.


It will only get fixed once. If it fails again I have a real special place to file it. ;)


In the taarashh lol
