What is wrong with my SD card and is it salvageable? At very least to get the current data off.
Information: I have an 8 GB Transcend Class 6 SDHC card that I got for my camera recently. It was working fine until one day out hiking the camera just reported that it could not save and there were no pictures on the card. I plugged it into my computer (running Ubuntu 10.04) and it said:
Error mounting: Mount: /dev/sdb1: Can't read superblock
It is partitioned with a master boot record and a FAT file system. nothing out of the ordinary that I can tell. What might be wrong and is it at all possible for me to recover those pictures?
And no, I did not drop anything.
