How to Recover Photos from the SanDisk 2GB Micro SD Cards

I have 2 Micro SD cards from 2008-2011 that are not recognized by my devices. They are a SanDisk 2GB and a Microdia 512MB. I know pretty definitively that it is not the card reader in my phone but the SD cards themselves that are the issue. I see a company like EaseUS claiming to be able to recover photos from a corrupted SD card, but I don't know if I can trust the software.

The following is how to recover your photos from Micro SD cards with EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard:

Step 1. Connect your Micro SD cards to your computer and launch the EaseUS SD card data recovery program. Choose the Micro SD card and lick 'Scan'.

Step 2. Use the Filter to look for the photos you want.

Step 3. Preview the photos and click 'Recover'. Please save the restored photos to another safe location instead of your old Micro SD cards.

However, all these steps above can be available only if your computer can detect your old Micro SD cards. And there are some reasons that your Micro SD cards can not be recognized in Windows, such as broken SD card reader, SD card damage or corruption, missing SD card driver and so on.

Therefore, if your Micro SD card is connected well but fails to appear in File Explorer, apply the following steps and see whether they can help.

Step 1. Right-click on the Windows Start button and go for Disk Management.

Step 2. Find your Micro SD card, right-click on it, and choose Change Drive Letter and Path.

Step 3. Click 'Add' to assign the drive letter to your Micro SD card.

If all these steps fail to solve your current problem, try to contact EaseUS data recovery service and consult the further difficulties you meet.
