Recover Deleted Videos from SD card
Nowadays, people shoot events in their daily life more and more often. It is pretty easy to do having a smartphone, tablet, digital camera, or camcorder at hand. But what do they have in common?
An SD card.
In all these devices, SD cards are installed. SD cards as storage can help users save a lot of media files, such as photos and videos, even if gadgets have limited internal memory. However, there is a negative side of SD cards. No one is insured from the loss of your favourite, and maybe very important, video files.
And the reasons may be completely different. You can accidentally delete the video from the SD card, format it, a virus damages the video, or a sudden system shutdown may occur during video transmission. When it happens, the recovery of SD card video becomes a great problem.
And you are wondering: How do I recover deleted videos from an SD card?
SD card “tips” you want to know
Before you start to recover deleted videos on an SD card, make sure that your card is not write-protected.
If you can read video files on an SD card, but cannot view or save them, then probably your SD card is write-protected. In this case, on the left side of the SD card, slide the switch up to unlock it. That’s it! This action will disable write protection.
Now you don’t need to recover deleted videos from a memory card, because your video isn’t lost or deleted. And you can play videos from an SD card or copy and move it to your computer — anything you want.
Check the card reader. A faulty card reader may be the reason why you can’t get access to your video on an SD card. Change the card reader or computer (if there is a chance to do it) and try using another SD card in order to check if the card reader is working.
The video still doesn’t load? Try reinstalling the driver. You can do it in the Control Panel of your computer. Select “Device Manager” ->“Disk Drives” and right-click on the name of your memory card.
In the end, disconnect the SD card, reboot the system and reconnect the card. The computer must recognize it. Open the SD card and try to retrieve videos from the SD card.
P.S.: After accidentally deleting the video, stop using the memory card. Otherwise, new data will overwrite old data and video recovery will be impossible.
