Battery/sd card issue!!

Hive had my K50 camera a few years and love it but having a problem. My SD card corrupts and cannot be read by camera it seems to happen when my battery pack or batteries go flat. I Any ideas why and anything I can do to stop it.
I lost so many lived photos this way! Tips to recover the photos would be good too as there is nothing wrong with the cards themselves

does it happen to just one SD card or any other cards you use?

if it's just the one - replace it...

If the power fails while the camera is trying to write to the SD card, things will get corrupted! Change out your battery before it gets too low!!!

Do you have an external SD card reader for your computer? If so, do your cards read with it? Try some file recovery software - if there is anything salvageable on the card, it should be able to read it. Do a web search for "file recovery software."

No problem - I kinda like Astrid Daventry! Have to think about it (although a gender change might seem necessary!)

Check at your SD card manufacturer website, most of SD card makers offer recovery software for their products.
Good software has different modes available (i.e. quick mode or deep & thorough mode).
Get decent external card reader, I recommend fast, reliable and cheap Kingston MobileLite G4 (USB 3.0).
