My Samsung Galaxy S was having an error on the notification bar saying sd card blank or has unsupported file system, so I was required to format my sd card. However, I couldn't format it using the phone, and my lappy couldnt recognize it either. So I formatted the card using my Nokia 5800, and it works.

I tried to recover lost images and songs using Photorec. However, I was only able to recover 3 files and all of them are sqlite files. One of them is 2gb in size which match the size of all the photos and songs that I used to have. Is the sqlite file my lost data or not? If it is, how can I convert it back to photos and songs that I mentioned earlier?

  • You're trying to view an SQLite file on your computer? You should perhaps ask on Super User, though I would Google first -- we only handle Android-specific PC questions, like drivers and the emulator. – Matthew Read Oct 16 '11 at 16:02

That's odd, photos are usually stored within a DCIM directory of the SD-Card. Never heard that one would store them as binary blob within a sqlite db.

Anyways, you cold discover the contents of the sqlite db with the sqlite (sometimes sqlite3) tool. But you need some basic understanding of SQL syntax.
