Default Recover photo and video from SD

My SD-card doesn't work anymore. My canon says: memory card failure. My windows computer says the card needs to be formatted, but when I try, it says that formatting has failed.
I've read this could be due to a defective controller on the SD-card. In this case will the recover-method of JimC (starting up with simplymepis en recover with photorec) work, of will I have to send the card to e.g. recoverfab.com?

If you can see the card as a drive letter on your computer, then try the software type of recovery first. I have recently come across another freeware program, Puran File Recovery, which seems to work very well, also.
If software attempts don't work, then you should consider what the photos are worth to you vs. the cost of recoverfab.
