"When I am trying to view photos my Samsung SD card in my digital camera, it says the SD card has RAW file system and 0 byte space. Then, it keeps saying SD card is not formatted if I still try to open the card. Samsung SD card shows the similar error message when I insert it to my computer. Can anyone tell me the solution to fix Samsung SD card RAW file system and get back all lost data when it shows 0 byte?"

It is not a strange thing that your Samsung SD card shows 0 byte space when it changes to RAW file system, so you have no need to worry that all data got lost since the SD card says 0 byte space. You just need to employ a data recovery utility to extract all inaccessible files off the RAW Samsung SD card before formatting it.
iCare Data Recovery Pro is a data recovery program that supports to restore data when Samsung SD card or other storage media shows RAW file system and 0 byte space. This software allows you to get back what you need when you are unable to access your Samsung SD memory card. You only need to follow the guide below to restore data when Samsung SD card turns to RAW format with 0 byte space:
Step1. Download and install iCare Data Recovery on your computer. Launch the software and choose a proper scan mode.
Step2. Select the RAW Samsung SD card as aim disk and wait the software to scan it to search lost data.
Step3. You can preview files when scanning is over and then save the lost data to another drive.
You cannot save the lost data to Samsung SD card which has RAW file system and 0 byte space because it will overwrite the lost data and make it unrecoverable.
"I was unable to write any data to my 4GB Samsung SD card because it changes to RAW file system from previous FAT32. I cannot read any data from this RAW Samsung SD card, either. It says I need to format SD card before I can use it, but will format erase all data? What should I do to open the corrupted SD card without formatting for inaccessible SD card recovery?"
"I have a 16GB Samsung SD card but it turns to 0 byte with some unknown reasons. I am wondering if all data has been lost forever since my SD card shows 0 byte. Meanwhile, I realize that the file system of this card converts to RAW. Is there any Samsung data recovery tool for RAW Samsung SD card data recovery?"
