Question about SanDisk Memory Media

1 Answer

Infected SD Card? or Computer?

I have a sandisk 1gb sd card that, Im having some problems with. A while back I had taken some photos and put the card into my computer via a built in media reader. After browsing the photos and saving some of them. I took the card out. Some time went by and I needed to look at the photos again so I put the card in only to find that almost all of the photos were replaced by folders with random characters and a few of the photos file sizes were listed as 2+ gb exceeding that of the card memory.

I proceeded to format the card thinking that there was a virus on it or something sinister in a similar nature. It work fine for a time, then the pictures would disapear and the folders and the random files would show up again.

I need help.

I've ran a hijackthis and a few virus scans and nothing seems out of the ordinary.

This can happen when the card is removed when Windows is still accessing it. Even when you think you are not doing something, Windows could be. I am 99% certain there is nothing malicious on your system and the cause was early ejection.

To prevent this from happening next time, before removing the SD card try using the "Safely Remove Hardware" tray icon to safely remove your device. TIP: Do not remove any storage device (i.e. SD Card, Flash drive, etc.) if the light is blinking.

Happy computing!

levyveress,
Well you have a 1GB SD card, there are roughly 1,073,741,824 bytes max per gig. They vary slightly from USB flash drives it total bytes, but the number should be 1,930 (or something close) MB for the 2Gig SD card, bring it back it may have been mislabeled on the packaging.

Sandisk Sansa e130


I have a 1GB SD card in my E130 Sansa. I had fill it up to 998MB. The only problem is that I have to leave 3MB in the flash unit. I guess it need it for constructing the Music Library.
The Flash (512MB) and the SD card (1GB) are both in FAT32.
I guess that it may be a problem of the SD card itself and not a problem of the Sansa.
1) Have you tried to read the SD card with a card reader (without the Sansa)?
2) Have tried formatting the SD card (not a quick format, but a real one) in FAT32 (be careful about that).
