How to recover “Card Requires Formatting” error from Canon 550D DSLR Camera

Canon 550D is an entry level DSLR Camera model with HD Video technology and various cutting-edge featues. It has all the features that make it a good choice for Beginners Photographer. It features: APS-C CMOS (22.3x14.9mm), 18-55mm Zoom 18-megapixels Resolutions, 3” LCD Screen, anti-shake etc. It supports SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card.

These cards are very secured storage media. But, On many occasion, User lose their important images, audios and videos due to corruption of memory card. When a card is corrupted, the data written on it becomes inaccessible. It is always good to take back up on daily basis. To fight with such situation you should have updated backup. So that you can restore it post formatting of memory card. But in absence of updated backup, only a Photo Recovery Software can help you to get back your important Photos and videos.
Suppose: You have captured many Photos and videos on the occasion of your baby's birthday with you Canon 550D DSLR camera. But when tried to see those files, it showed following error:
Card Requires Formatting”

The above error indicates that there is something wrong with the memory card inserted in Canon 550D. It may be due to below reasons:
  1. Virus Manifestation
  2. pulling out of memory card when a file is being written on it
  3. Taking out of memory card when a file is being transferred to a computer system
  4. Low battery while capturing or transferring a file to computer
  5. Switching off a Camera too frequently while capturing a photo or Video etc.
Formatting of the memory card can help you to root out the above error. But, all the images and videos will be erased. If they are very important then Searching of an efficient and read-only Photo Recovery Software is mandatory.
I have searched a very good Photo Recovery tool named Stellar Photo Recovery Software. It is an efficient Photo Recovery utility and can recovers audios, videos and image file formats including MOV, AVI, ASF, WMV, MP4, MIDI, M4A, M4P, and WMA. It is compatible with both, Windows and Mac OS.
