SG2 stopped recognizing MicroSD card

by asaf21 / March 31, 2014 11:39 PM PDT

Hello friends,

I have a SG2 for about 2 and a half years with a SanDisk MicroSDHC 32GB 4.

Recently it started to unrecognize it and then recognize it again for a couple of weeks until it stopped recognizing it completely.
The phone says: "SD card blank or unsupported file system"and asks if i want to format it.

When i put it in other phones it was the same.

The data on the card is very important for me.

I send it to a recovery company, they told me that the card must be "Monolith" to recover all the data and that would cost an overstated 1000$.

Did someone had the same problem?
Is that a fair price?
Do you know if there is a place that can Monolith it in less price in the US?

Thank you guys!

Maybe better to buy a card reader for your PC (can be built in or connected via USB), so you can make a regular copy of the contents of your new SD card to your PC in the future.
It's kind of dangerous to keep very important data on only one place.

Looks like the PC needs repair too?

Get estimates. Today it looks like PC repairs can often exceed the cost of a new box. Some feel entitled to life time support or repairs or maybe more. The story above is typical, nothing really new going on here. We only lose what we don't backup.

But since the PC USB ports don't work, you have some hard decisions to make soon.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
