    If the device did indeed "take a crap" and if you are talking about the internal sdcard, then I'm afraid there is not much that can be done.

    If they're all on the SD, you should be able to read and save them with a PC(card reader) or another Android device.

    The card reader is correctly recognized by the PC is it, drivers installed? How was the SD formatted, FAT32 or exFAT, or did you formatted it in another way, were you using App2SD or something?

    A microsd card is a microsd card, so any decent reader will work with any card. You can also get adapters to allow you to plug a microSD into a full size sd slot. Have you tested your adapter with a different card?

    The format question is relevant though. Generally you'd know whether you have changed the format of a card, but the exception is the Marshmallow "adoptive storage" option. If you have Android 6 and used the option to incorporate the sd card as phone storage then it has been reformatted and encrypted, and you are out of luck. Otherwise you should be fine.

    What is on it will depend on where you chose to store things, but contacts won't be there unless you used the export function to back them up.

    i did test the adapter and it works for a smaller card i have, but the slot is too small for this card, i did order the universal one posted above. i dont know how i had it set up to store things, but i always had the message come up storage space running out becuase i had so many apps and music on it, so im sure something is there, if not oh well. i would have liked to kept my contacts but we will see. thanks for the help guys

    Sorry, microSD cards only come in one physical size, so how can the slot work for some cards but be too small for others?

    Please don't be offended, but I have to ask: are you sure that it's the microSD card you have taken out and not the SIM? That's the only explanation I can think of.

    Re. your contacts, did you store them as Google contacts and allow Google to sync them? If so they will all be safely stored in your GMail account. If not, how terminal is the phone's state? If it can boot into Android at all there is a chance (even with a dead screen there are ways), though probably not otherwise.

    The thing with "Sandisk 16GB" written on it looks like a MicroSD all right. But I don't understand about your card reader's slot then: microSD is a standard which specifies the form-factor of the card, so the only sense in which you get "larger" and "smaller" microSD is their capacity, not their physical size.

    Hopefully, yes. Though I have used Samsung microSD cards and microSD-to-SD adapters and found those to be normal sized (which you'd expect), so it still seems odd if their card reader didn't fit the card. But I'll assume the card reader was odd, for whatever reason: your card clearly fits the phone, and I've used more SanDisk microSD cards than any other brand and never had a problem with them, so hopefully the new reader will work with it.

    Put the card in a card reader. They make adapters if you have something that will read a full size SD card. There are also USB sticks that you can put a micro SD card into and access like a regular flash drive.
