I have a Micro SD card used in a Samsung Cell phone.
Yesterday the Samsung phone reported an Error with the card when turning on the phone.
I tried mounting that Micro SD card on the Mac this morning (running El Capitan) but it wouldn't mount.
Tried Disk Uitility - doesn't show up as a disk
Tried Disk Warrier - also doesn't show up as a disk
Tried another Micro SD card, it shows up and works fine.
Is there any application or some way to sort of do a "force mount" if there is such a thing?
The SD card is a small one, only 2GB - may have some pictures on it I would like to recover, but before I can do anything I somehow have to mount it.
SD and Micro SD cars are not noted for reliability. That said try the eraser trick, you have nothing to lose.
If it does come back to life consider it a momentary reprieve and replace it once any relevant data is recovered.

Social Distancing is an Oxymoron. The correct term is Social Demonization or Social Repression. Bandits, thieves and politically correct thugs hide behind masks.
Good idea to clean the contacts of the TF card - they were actually a bt tarnished.
Still didn't nount but Disk Utility at least recognized there was something plugged into he Mac.
Ran disk Utility repair - couldn't repair what ever was wrong.
Then tried Disk Warrior.
Showed up as an unknown disk with the message:
Directory cannot be rebuilt, the file system is unsupported
Then under "Advanced" it shows it as the MS-DOS/PC file system (which it is) and as Drive Format: FDisk Partition scheme
Wild guess but do you have Boot Camp installed? OR take it to a friend with Winbloze and haver them retrieve the files. How about a printer on your network - any that will receive card? Last is a camera - will it fit inside? Just guessing here.
