Re: [LUG] Any software for resurrecting microSDs?

I was using etcher to burn the new Pi ISO to a microSD and for some reason it took a very long time for the linux to re-mount the disk and I popped it out just as the filemanager windows popped up. Now it wont even appear on /dev and doesnt even seem to illicit any errors that I can find. I cant believe its completely dead just from that and was thinking there must be some software out there that can get into it an bring it back! Anyone got any ideas?

Has it been saved as state "read only"?

I have had such problems where I stopped program when slow when putting stuff on USB sticks.
Two things happened: a)no MBR set (so USB device does not open)
b) device in "read only state".

I scraped the USB sticks as I could not find any way to sort out.
Sorry to be of little help.
But my heart remembers these events.
