Hi I have a MacBook Pro, and have a problem with a micro SD

Resolved Question:

I have a MacBook Pro, and have a problem with a micro SD card. My card reader on the mac works fine as it recognises all my other SD cards, but I have a very important one that the computer just will not recognise. It's like I never even plugged anything in. Nothing at all.
The Disk Utility doesnt recognise that anything is plugged in either. The SD card was used in a Blackberry, but after using it on the mac to add some files to it neither the mac or blackberry will recognise it.
Do you have abny advice? I cannot format it even on either device (not ideal as I NEED the files!)

Unfortunately the format is usually Fat32 and if you can’t read it in Mac you will need to try and repair it on a Windows machine.

You can try Disk Utility.

Thanks for the response. Will a windows machine be able to recognise the card at least?
Expert:  Mike replied 5 years ago.
Maybe, but if the Mac can’t probably not. But there are more tools on the PC to try and repair. You can try this on Mac, it will do things the Disk Utility will not:
