"Please help me out of the problem that SD card is not accessible on my camera, cell phone and computer. I have an SD card SanDisk for my Nikon camera, but just now when I turned on my camera it says SD card is not accessible. Then, I tried to reinsert the SD card, but I received the same error message. In order to check if there is something wrong with my camera, I took out the SD card and inserted it in my Samsung mobile phone, but I still receive the similar message that SD card is not accessible. Finally, I inserted the SD card to a card reader and connected it to my computer, I received a message to say SD card is not accessible, access is denied. This is the first time that I run into such a problem. Can you tell me if I can restore pictures stored on the SD card when it is inaccessible?"
