So hear me out, I m using 32 gb SD memory card which is stopped working suddenly. And  it was unreadable ofevery device regardless if i put it in other mobile devices or in my laptop through a card reader.  Its still unreadable, and it gives me an error of "please insert disk" something. But i wanna clear one one thing there was one time it showed me some kind of life for like half an hour after it been unreadable the first time. And never recovered back still. Is there any way that i can recover my data from that SD card.  Please help me. 

Things i tried so far
Try chkdsk sorta thing in cmd but it gives me "unable to access" something error so it never completed.
put in different devices i didn't work either.

I was going to guess SanDisk as my wife's mobile seems to kill one every 12 months or so. I Iouldn't be too optimistic unfortunately. I've not had much, or really any, success resurrecting corrupted MicroSD cards.

 

You could try reformatting in Linux? I've managed to reformat borked USB drives in this manner before that wouldn't do anything in Windows.

So there's a pretty good general guide here: https://www.maketecheasier.com/repair-corrupted-usb-drive-linux/

I would probably create a bootable Ubuntu USB (https://tutorials.ubuntu.com/tutorial/tutorial-create-a-usb-stick-on-windows#0)

 

Try following Pt1 of that (your MicroSD card should be readable from a bootable USB, you will probably have to work out which sdc# it is by partition size)

Unless you want to run the risk of data loss, don't proceed onto "Zeroing the USB drive"
