Music File Recovery after Micro SD Card Corruption

MicroSD cards are very small memory cards generally used in cell phones to store music files. MicroSD cards are designed for fairly rough usage. As microSD card is an electronic device, it is more susceptible to corruptions. Imagine you have just inserted the microSD card in your cell phone after copying some songs from your computer. As you insert the microSD card in your mobile phone and start listening to music suddenly your phone reboots. After that, you will get an error like “A Media Card has been inserted that contains errors. To correct the errors please use a disk error-checking utility on a computer”. As suggested, you will try to repair it using disk utility by connecting your microSD card on your computer. Unfortunately, it fails to repair microSD  card errors. By this time, you must have felt to throw it away!!!! This error generally indicates that microSD card is corrupted. Similarly, there are different reasons due to which your microSD card may get corrupted.

Virus attacks: Viruses potentially damage the file system of the memory card by altering the way it works without the user’s knowledge or permission. If the file system gets corrupted then all your music files including other data may become inaccessible resulting in loss of data. It may also get corrupted due to other reasons like power failure while transferring the files from computer to microSD card. As a result of memory card’s file system corruption you may get errors, which does not allow you to access the files resulting in data loss.

Abrupt removal of microSD card while transferring data: If you accidentally or abruptly remove card reader where the microSD card is inserted during data transfer then you may end up in data loss. This is because, if you are transferring any audio files using cut and paste commands and remove the microSD card before the files get copied to it then you may lose the files, which are in the data transfer process.

Improper formatting of microSD card: If you have formatted microSD card improperly or interrupted the formatting process due to some reasons then you may end up in format error resulting in loss of music files.

As you realize that you have lost the music files from your microSD card, immediately stop using it to avoid permanent loss of files. This is because, if you use the microSD card then the data that is still existing on your memory card may get overwritten by new files. Therefore, avoid usage of microSD card after corruption.
