my usually reliable SanDisk Extreme that I use in my phone (android) is no longer readable. totally weird. nothing unusual happened, no (very) strange downloaded apps to corrupt it that I know of. repeated restarts have not yielded joy.

I also had 2 SanDisk Extreme 16GB SD cards go bad after minimal use in a camera. Bought them together, used one just a few times before it went toes up. Thought it was a fluke. Started using the second one, and it went toes up even quicker. SanDisk was cordial about trying to recover the lost pics on 'em, but to no avail. By the time I got around to thinking about sending them back for refund or replacement, their value wasn't worth the aggro.

Still have tons of SanDisk flash drives, and now have some 64GB and 128GB mSD cards from them in mobile devices, but that Extreme experience soured me. Never had such total failure of any SD card in any camera before or since. I hope you are able to find some joy and recover your data. Good luck.

If you have access to Windows you can try Zar X
I had a user with a corrupted flash drive and this was the only program that worked (and I tried several).

Thanks, rouderon, I will try that.

And, yes, this is not good. The music I lost can be duplicated, but I did have lots of photos and some video. Ugh.

Have you tried PhotoRec?

A friend accidentally erased an SD card, and I was able to recover it for her.
