Memory Card Data Recovery Service

Every photographer needs a camera, and every camera needs a memory card.

Memory cards are identical to USB flash drives as far as data storage capabilities are concerned, but are vastly different when it comes to functionality. USB flash drives are primarily used to back up data, whereas memory cards are primarily used to expand the data storage capacity of electronic devices such as cameras and handheld gaming systems. Engineers at ASAP Data Recovery Services have spent years developing effective methodologies in memory card data recovery to maximize their chances of recovering data from damaged memory cards. We pledge that if we can’t recover the data off of your damaged memory card, nobody can!

Memory cards store their data on “flash memory chips,” which function by manipulating a series of transistors with electrical currents. Rudimentary memory card data loss issues are solved by simply breaking open their plastic enclosures and extracting the data directly from the “flash memory chips” within. If, however, a memory card suffers from a more severe problem, additional steps must be taken in order to ensure that recovery is successful. “Mass storage controllers,” another important component of memory cards, allow them to communicate with whichever device they are used in. Under normal circumstances, damage to a memory card’s “mass storage controller” can also be circumvented by interacting directly with the card’s “flash memory chips,” but if the card is encrypted, the data will not be accessible at all until the “mass storage controller” is fixed or replaced.

Some memory cards (especially PNY-branded and microSD cards) are “monolithic.” In a “monolithic” memory card, all the internal components of the device, including the “flash memory chip” and the “mass storage controller,” are combined into one single chip. Recovering data from a “monolithic” memory card is immensely difficult, as the plastic surface of the chip must first be removed with an abrasive to expose its circuits. This is a very delicate process where a single mistake can result in permanent data loss.
