When you fist putted the SD on the camera, did you do a format on the camera?
The original Partition was exFAT, because I checked on other, the same 128GB sd card.
I don't remember when I put the sd first time into the camera if the camera formated it, perhaps it was formatted by default from the factory.
I've tried different card readers, but the sd gets very hot, perhaps the card controller is out of order.

Send it back to the dealer and ask for a new.
When the new one arrives, test it.

Please read this thread carefully for whatever it is worth. "How to repair micro sd 16gb card? It shows 31mb" http://forums.sandisk.com/t5/Mobile-...mb/td-p/186959

In it, message 51 dated 25 Dec 2015, tells you how one can use diskpart clean to get the full capacity.

Well, there are two disadvantages in using diskpart clean

1. It wipes your flash drive's first 2048 sectors obliterating the MBR and partition table in sector 0 . While it may restore the full capacity of the flash drive, with subsequent regular format, all the data is lost.

2. Diskpart clean is a bit dangerous. If inadvertently you do it on a wrong drive you had it. ( Many had done it and then have come here for data/disk recovery). One has to exercise caution and make doubly sure that he is doing that on a correct drive.

Now keep this as a last option. ( You will possibly get back your flash drive full capacity but no data.)

Is it possible to modify the above procedure and still recover the data? Well, we may try but no results guaranteed for we will only be shooting in the dark and hoping to hit the target :). )

Post a screenshot of Windows Disk Management showing your flash drive and then I shall think about it.( hmmmm........ you will be the guinea lion - pig sounds too humiliating )

(Adhere to the guidelines here when taking the WDM screenshot Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image )

If there is any chance to have your photos back, do what Jumanji asks.

Did you read the tutorial I had mentioned in my previous post? If you had read that you wouldn't have posted this truncated screenshot of WDM as against a full screenshot with all the information clearly visible..Please read it Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image Is it difficult to post a full screenshot?

Anyway very unfortunate. The rest of the space is not being shown as unallocated. There is no volume.It had just vanished. In that condtition, I do not think it will be possible to regain the full space or recover the data. That is only my first thought. Let me see what Partition Wizard shows before I say "go or no go".

Please download Partition Wizard Free v 9.1 from http://www.filehorse.com/download-partition-wizard-home/old-versions/. ( Pay attention not v10.0, not v10.1 not v10.2.1.) Run it and post a full screenshot of the Partition Wizard Window showing all your internal drives and including your flash drive - screenshot the very first screen after you launch the program. ( Plug in only your flash drive and remove all other external drives and flash drives)
