"I have a 32GB SD card for my Canon digital camera, but recently it stops working normally. After inserting it to my camera, I cannot access the card because camera says that there is no valid memory card. Connecting the SD card to my computer, it shows as a RAW device under My Computer. I still cannot access the card because system says that the memory card needs to be formatted before I can use it. Can I access the SD card without formatting?"
"My 32GB SD card is unreadable on my Canon digital camera, so I plugged it to my PC to see what is wrong. After connecting it to my PC, system can recognize it as a removable disk. However, when I click the disk and access it, I received a message to say there is no disk in drive. Insert a disk, and try again. Under Disk Management, when I right click the SD card and select Open option, I still got the same error message. Is it possible to recover files stored on the SD card?"
