Question: I use the 64GB Sandisk SDXC Card in my GoPro 3 Black Edition to capture some very important video footage. But when I try to transfer the footage to my computer, my PC won’t read it and says “No SD”. The card seems to be corrupted. It is really important that I need recover those data. Has anyone successfully recovered data from these cards?
