We teach you how to retrieve and format a damaged microSD card

Even while in 2016, microSD cards are still an important factor for many users when purchasing a smartphone, since not everyone has a minimum 32 GB of storage terminal, and anything less than that figure can be problematic. In addition, the possibility of storing content in the cloud is almost remote, since you need Wi-Fi permanent connection, or you have a good data rate.

It is not that all are advantages with the microSD, since most of the people falls into the error save a few euros and buy a card of imitation and that does not even certified, which is detrimental to the performance of the terminal, as already explained at the time Hugo Barra Xiaomi policy. The fact is that, if you want to own a microSD, which have certified and is a recognized brand as that of Kingston, Samsung, SanDisk, Toshiba…

Advantages and disadvantages aside, the time that any microSD card we’ve had inserted in the mobile during a certain time we has not appeared a message that putting “the microSD card is damaged,” is rare and from there we do not know what to do, just thinking about that there to buy a new. And that does not have to be like that, since we have for you a solution to lengthen the life of your memory card, and teach you how to do it.

To repair your microSD, here are the steps to follow

Explain it to you in the best possible way, but if there is any doubt, you have at your disposal this process explained in video, as you can see. There are many ways to repair a damaged microSD, but with this method, we believe that it is faster and easier by the fact that the process unfolds on the computer.

  1. Turn off the terminal and entered to the mode recovery, where will see that in the part lower a message in which is us communicate a failed to the trying to read the card, is there where will know that something failure.

  2. We extract the microSD and introduce it into the computer via an adapter. Then, download a program called SD Card Formatter 4.0, which I will leave the link, and once downloaded, install it in a process that will not take you long.

  3. Once done that, Open the program and already the microSD card will be registered, but if some case is not listed, just give a “Refresh” to be resolved. We will go to the button “Options” where we will set up a couple of things. In the option “Format Type” select “Full (Overwrite)”, and in “Format Size Adjustement” choose “ON”. We give “OK” and then “Format”.

  4. We hope to complete the process, which will be longer than the previous one, and once finished we took the card from the computer and re-enter on the mobile. After that, we return to enter mode recovery, and the message which gave error will no longer appear, in addition to that there is a new section called “apply update from sdcard”.

  5. If for some reason this does not happens, you turn to insert the SD card in the computer, and repeat step 3, but instead select “Full (Erase)” and already Yes should work.
