1.
If nothing is written to SD card, you have chance to "restore" or find few files...
PC and Tools needed...
Use Google and search for:
restore
recovery

2.
Please remember your Z3 is no PC/Notebook...  :-[
I can't remember that OTG drive is supported and you can manually choose... destination for any kind of formatting options.

Sorry to say.
Own risk...  :-[
Bad/wrong decision.  :-[  :-[  :-[

Next time please be more carefully.

Only as info.

Good luck and I hope you can restore/recover your SD card.

best Regards

its not about my data....
its about the issue.
its a good news that Samsung Z3 supports Pssd of 1 TB. Even one can able to do all the operations related to compatibility. but the problem is while formatting the OTG drive its formatting the micro SD cards. I reported this issue because, this is a great feature which Z3 is giving, and i think because of minor issue it will impact the specification.

Are you able to work with SDB?

Code: [Select]
sdb shell
cat /proc/partitions

Maybe mmcblk1 is now OTG... and mmcblk2 is SD?

Should be possible to identify by size...

Sorry, can't check self... no Z3 in my hands...

But maybe I have time to check this with Z130... Maybe here OTG supported too like Z3 can...

Best Regards

Hi Abhay,

  I could use OTG USB and MMC card in Z3 with out any issue.
  Tried formatting(after taking backup) OTG USB and MMC, it is working fine in my device.
   
  Is this issue happening always for you?

Thanks,
Rithesh

Found my 32 GB "Spaceloop Hybrid" OTG stick.  8)

Z1 do nothing...  :-[
Thanx Zed Zapped for hint.

Short tested in my RD-PQ... OTG stick is detected and LED is blinking...
So I think Z1 is Hardware related... maybe no Power on for external OTG device...

About Z3...
Sorry, my fault... if OTG is attached then it is much harder to work with SDB...  ;D  ::)  :-[

But for instance this little tiny BUT very cool app work:
shellexec   8)

Here it is possible to check result for:
cat /proc/partitions
