Hello! Is there any SD card recovery expert here? It’s my first to rescue data from a SD Card with RAW format! Please, help me! In fact, I have a Micromax smart phone SD card that holds all important phone messages, images, videos and applications.

To be conveniently used between different electronic devices, the memory card or SD card is made to be as small and simple as possible. However, this merit also brings us some inconvenience. Without a USB interface like a pen drive or flash drive, a memory card or SD card also cannot be directly inserted into a PC/laptop. That’s why you needs a memory card Reader or Adapter. But, do you know that these two devices are also different? For example, as to memory card Reader, it is much more used to connect a memory card to a PC or laptop. Namely, it is good at transferring data between a memory card and PC/laptop. However, compared to a memory card Reader, a memory card adapter has much more functions. Except transferring data between a card and a PC, it can also support transferring data between memory cards or between a memory card and a hard drive, etc.
