Recovering data from a broken SD card--that alone makes me want to get an Arduino.

I don't know how common it would be for only one of the communication system to fail. I wouldn't count on it. Then again, it can't hurt to have this in your "toolbox"

Bad Memories....

I have an even worse problem.  I have a cheap MP3 player that languished in a box for some time.  I charged it and tried to use it, only to find that it thought it had no memory (previously 1GB, built in, not on a card). I have tried everything I can think of to remedy this -  I have disconnected and reconnected the battery, tried the formatting software on the CD that came with it...etc,    As all that happened was the battery ran down, so I assume that the memory is corrupted rather than actually faulty.  The FM radio still works!  Very frustrating, even though it's only worth a few bucks.....

That is the advantage of multiple protocol support

Great use of technology and knowhow, thanks to the multiple protocol support on the SD Card. I am not sure that all the SD cards will be supporting both SDIO and SDI protocol, but yes having access to the this kind of development boards will never make you helpless.

I have been searching for data recovery software for a while now and still not able to find a good recovery option which can work upon my corrupted memory card.. This seems like a legit solution. Though it requires you to have technical knowledge to work upon but since the solution is permanent, you would not mind spending some time to learn how you can recover you old data back..
