Help MicroSD card corrupted or hid all folders off my Sansa ClipZ - please help!


This may not be the right forum for posting this question but I don't know where to post so posting here.

Yesterday, a friend gave me his 2 GB no-name microSD card to copy songs and to give it back to him. He had told me to delete the content it contained or format it since the songs he needed were many.

I came home and plugged the card into the clipZ but rockbox wouldn't recognize it. I booted into the OF and the "Refreshing" message appeared but kept flashing constantly. I reset the player, started back into OF and connected the player to my laptop to see what was wrong or to format the card.

The card couldn't be accessed and the mouse hung / was busy opening the card for a long time. I checked the ClipZ internal memory and it was fine. Next I removed and re-plugged the ClipZ into the USB port. This time, the volume name of the ClipZ internal memory changed to "Removable Disk".

I opened it to find only one of my MP3 files, two rockbox files - RES_INFO and SYS_CONF and one hidden file called DID.bin

No folders and no other files. But the properties still showed that 3.58 GB was occupied. I've tried some DOS tricks to unhide the hidden folder which probably was due to some virus in the memory card but wasn't successful.

I plugged the card into my Nokia and it asks for a password. When I tried accessing it using an SD slot on my laptop, it is recognized for a moment and then vanishes away. Something fishy for sure.

Can anyone tell me how can I recover the folders I lost or which are now hidden or whatever from the internal memory of my ClipZ?

I have some voice recordings which I don't want to lose.

Any help very much appreciated.

Kind Regards,
