I have a SD card by EMTEC and when I put it in my computer, it does not show anything. I go to "My computer" and there's not any sign of my SD card. And I can't format my SD memory because nothing is accessible.

At first, you will need to install the drivers for your card reader, then you will be able to read the card you have plugged in. You can find these drivers on the support CD that arrived with your computer or download them manually. In most cases, you don't need this drivers because it installs as a Universal Mass Storage.

At first, you need to check this SD card on another computer to see whether it is still healthy.
If it can be read normally there, it could be the problem of your computer and back up all card data well. Just find solutions to fix the computer problems.
But, if it can be read there, but also gets some error message and card data is still inaccessible, download data recovery software to see whether your wanted data could be retrieved successfully. There are many similar card data recovery programs can help you deeply scan this card and find your data back, like Recuva, 4Card Recovery, PhotoRec and more.
But, if the card also cannot be read there, you must get some serious card problems. Just ask some professional persons for help, when the card data is really important for you.
Note: In the future, you should never forget to back up important card data again.
