I've made some great photos with my camera. Yesterday I wanted to read them out of the memory card and my camera gave an error, please reinsert. I've tried a card reader and went to the photoshop but with no succes. In the photoshop they said the memory card isn't repairable.

I hope that the driver section of the memory card is broken, to communicate with the pc or flash reader, due to ESD or something like that. After some research on the internet I found that it is possible to communicate directly to the flash (getting around the driver section).

After opening the memory card i found nothing, no flash-chip, its one solid PCB. (picture below). There are some golden pads but i don't know if its possible to communicate directly through the pads with the flash using spi or other interface.

Does any one know if there is a datasheet of the Memory Stick pro duo (MSMT2G) that will tell me what the golden pad represent. Or is it just not possible what i want to do?

Download a program called 'zero assumption recovery' and try that first.

If the problem is software related (corrupt data etc) then this program will sort it - if not, forget trying to make 'repairs' to any physical problem - you won't do it without the most sophisticated electronic equipment (including an electron microscope).

Zero assumption recovery doesn't work, because the memory stick is invisible for my computer. When i put the memory card in the camera it won't even format. Thats why i think the card is physically broken.

Thanks

it sounds like you're pooched on this one .
i have had a couple of cam cards come in for data retrieval , there have been other flash types as well .

one card had corrupted data and "deleted files" (thanks to some monkey at a "photography shop") .
i was able to access the card and get a lot of the information off of it .

the other card behaved as you have mentioned ...
i tried several methods of access , spent a lot of spare time and drank a lot of coffee ...
to no avail .
sometimes when something is broke ... it's broke .
