My Samsung Mini SD card has recently started playing up. At first my phone was crashing and briefly (before restarting) showing error messages about it; the crashing stopped when I removed the card. In Windows Explorer the card's contents appear for a split second and then the message to insert a card is shown.
Obviously there's something wrong with the card's circuitry but not the memory itself. Is this problem recoverable or do I need to take it to a storage recovery specialist should I want to get at the contents?
Also, how would I go about claiming on the warranty without packaging or receipt? The card was a gift. I would presumably also need to give the damaged card in thereby losing those unrecovered files. Is this correct?
Thank you for any help offered.
