the device can't read SD card any more after..

Some hours ago, I met someone who sent me a message to buy my DR1000S. And he tried checking the status of the device. But he was a crazy person. While the device is being booted, suddenly he ejected the SD card. After the device is booted, it can't read SD card and displays no file on it. And it can't be booted anymore, just 'No memory card found' screen appears on it.
Is there a solution? I don't know where the problem is and what to do. Please help me if you know something about it.

Possibly the SD card got corrupted. You can check and fix the card in a PC.

When the problem persists, and the same occurs on different SD cards, you may have hit an issue where the system refuses to mount the SD card after erroneously files are created when no SD card was inserted. You can work around this by (re)installing a firmware update.

Take the SD card from the device, copy a firmware update to the card using a PC, insert the card back into the device and hit the reset switch. After the upgrade process, the SD card should be mounted correctly.

Thank you very much for your kind answer! I'll try it just tomorrow because now it is midnight here and I don't have SD card reader now. And I'll post the result at this thread. Thanks again!

Gertjan, I tried it just as you told and the problem is solved simply. Now it is turned on normally again. Just borrowing SD card reader took some time. Thank you so much!!

Same exact thing happened to my DR800 once. After getting really panicked, tech support gave me this same answer, and it worked perfectly.

Definitely a good trick to keep in mind.
