Abstract The present invention is a nonvolatile memory, a nonvolatile memory reproducing apparatus, and a nonvolatile memory reproducing method, using a memory card for managing files recorded therein with a file allocation table (FAT), for segmenting each file into blocks, adding a file number and block number to each segmented block, and adding an attribute file to each block segmented file, thereby allowing the connection state of each block to be recovered even if the FAT is destroyed.
