More dead flash

It seems my flash memory karma went to hell. After having to trash the new fake Kingston USB drive I bought, the 8GB Samsung Micro SD card in my HTC decided to crap out, taking with it a bunch of cool photos I wanted to post… Lost perhaps forever, until I have access to a NAND reader in the future.

Wouldn’t you know it, I was thinking about backing up the photos just the day before it went bad… Dammit.

  1. Had that happen to me and lost some school work. I tried rescue tools but then I remembered that a flash drive just pretends to be a real hard drive and that data corruption can leave the thing trashed and the data unrecoverable by (sometimes) even the most heroic and expensive means.
