My Apple SDXC reader media not readable, want to save my photos!

While I was taking the photos, my camera froze so I had to re-insert the battery in the camera which is a usual procedure to fix this problem I've done this many times in the past with no problem. However, this time the camera stopped recognizing the SD card/format of it. Unfortunately, after inserting the SD card in my laptop It gives an error "(The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer)". I have tried looking into utility disk for solutions but nothing seems to be working. I have literary tried every solution found on Google but nothing seems to be working. PLEASE PLEASE help!!! Thank you!

If you have tried some methods but all of them seem not to work to get back the camera photos, you can try SD card data recovery software such as iBoysoft Data Recovery for Mac to recover photos from the unreadable SD card.

When the SD card is not readable on Mac, the reasons behind the problem are various, including a Corrupt SD card reader, damaged USB port, internal file system errors, virus infection, software bugs, the disk not formatted to a supported Mac format, macOS issues, hardware problems, etc. Given that you have tried using 2 other laptops but giving the same problem. Then the culprit should be the SD card itself, being damaged or corrupted.

The working way to recover data from a corrupted SD card on Mac is by using recovery software for SD card. There are free and paid data recovery software you can choose from. And here, I would like to recommend iBoysoft Data Recovery for Mac, a professional application that delivers a high recovery rate, a risk-free environment, a Finder-like UI, etc. It scans the SD card for lost and deleted data, enables you to preview scanned results, and recovers wanted files to a different location.

If you have successfully recovered data from the camera SD card, then you can format the SD card with Mac's Disk Utility to make it readable again.
