Hey, recently, I am using a SanDisk Micro SD card on my digital camera. It is borrowed from my friend. But, yesterday, I noticed a problem with this Micro SD card. When attempting to copy 325 photos from this card to my computer, the windows would ask me to format this card .Moreover, any of the photos inside cannot be accessed. As I loaded it back to camera, it also hung all the time. But, after changing this Micro SD card, the camera would work fine as before. So, I guess that this card may be damaged or virus-infected. But, I am not sure. Please, help me rescue the Micro SD card photos and restore the card functional use! I am really afraid that my friend will blame me for damaging his Micro SD card. Please, help me!
