MicroSD card died

Postby Pyrrho » Sun Apr 15, 2018 1:22 pm

Pining for the fjords, etc.

Seems to be really quite sincerely dead.

Oh well...have put it in the freezer for what the heck ever insane reason. Will try it again when it's chilled.

If I can get it to work I just want the photos off it.

That's what she said!
"It is not I who is mad! It is I who is crazy!" -- Ren Hoek

"[... it seems most strange that... ] the Creator of Heaven and Earth resorted to the womb of a certain Jewish lady, grew there for nine months and was born as an infant, and afterwards grew up and was betrayed into the hands of his enemies who sentenced him to death and executed him, and that afterwards... he came to life and returned to his original place. The mind of a Jew, or any other person, simply cannot tolerate these assertions. If you have listened all your life to the priests who have filled your brain and the marrow of your bones with this doctrine, and it has settled into you because of that accustomed habit. [I would argue that if you were hearing these ideas for the first time, now, as a grown adult], you would never have accepted them." -- Rabbi Moses ben Nahman, defending the Talmud at the Disputation of Barcelona, July 1263.

"God is the supreme excuse for human adults to absolve themselves of any obligation to preserve natural resources for their own children during their lifetime." -- Gene Ray

Other authorities recommend baking at 240 degrees.

I just can't see how extremes of temp are going to help you out here Pyrrho. After all, this things got no moving parts which might be temporarily realigned by large temp swings long enough for one last read cycle.

Fucker's broke. Sorry about the pics.

Cycle 240deg for 2.5 hours, freezer for 2.5 hours.
Repeat for 10 cycles.

IMPORTANT!!!!!
Once started the treatment has to been concluded in one take. No breaks.

Let me know how it goes.

Tried it in a few different devices? I've found that Windoze 10 sometimes fails to recognise cards when other OSs will.

(It's probably fucked, though... :()
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

10 is fucked. Too busy spilling your beans to the world to get on with the immediate job of doing your bidding you see.

Bah, I turned all that stuff off straight away.

Do you have a way of getting rid (permanently) of all the games and other stupid bullshit? (Bloatware)?? I've heard it's possible, but my former IT guy says he could never get it to work. Shit always came back with the next update.

Possibly--anything in particular vexing you?

Not me personally, I still run 7 Ultimate. Which has always performed flawlessly almost as good as Docs Mac.

AFAIKT, there are no games on my machines (apart from Spider solitaire which I dragged in from XP). Microsoft also seems to have largely given up on reinstalling deleted stuff.

It could be someone was talking about the bloatware some manufacturer puts on new machines, rather than Microsoft. Which they could just as easily do with Windows 7.
