If you format it, your files will be gone.. have you tried to read it on another computer to make sure it is the sd card and not the reader?

Hi anna21,

Formatting the card may fix the problem however you will loose all the data on the card. I have a solution here that can help you but you need a SD Card Reader on your computer to back up the files.

1. Put the SD Card in your Card Reader.
2. Connect it to your PC.
3. If the window pop-up like asking to open with what program select Open as File.
4. If the window does not pop-up, Go to My Computer/Computer. There should be the SD Card Memory.
5. Backup all the save file in your SD Card in other word copy the whole SD card. Save it in your computer. Make sure you remember where you put it.
6. Reformat the SD Card by Right Click and click Fromat
7. Tick Quick Format
8. After it finish formatting, Try open the SD Card. It should be empty.
9. Put back all the copied file back into SD Memory Card.
10. Plug it on your DS. Check the files. Play and Enjoy

Rate me if this helps so I can help others. Thanks for using Fixya.

most card readers can't read sdhc cards. are you sure yours can, it's not the same as sd (different voltages and stuff) Your's does not sound like it can from the labelling you describe. you are going to have to buy a reader. They are really cheap ebay or ebuyer etc etc. The other option is to connect your camera directly to the pc by usb.

I have a 4gb sandisk micro sdhc with adapter and the computer freezes when i have it in the sd drive.I have a hp pavilion a1 a1203w. Is there anything i can do?? Please Help


I had a similar problem not long ago. The SD and SDHC standards are different. SD only goes up to 2GB, and SDHC (high capacity) goes higher than 2GB. THe problem is that SD card readers aren't capable of reading SDHC cards, even though the card will physically fit into the card reader slot. When you insert an SDHC card into an SD card reader, the reader attempts to read the format, and locks up the OS while trying. You'll need to get an SDHC card reader and use it separately like through a USB port or something.

I got a SanDisk 3 in 1 SD card. I don't know how to get music off of my computer to the tiny SD card to my phone.


Hello,

You can connect the SD card to the Card reader or insert the SD card to the SanDisk 3 and then connect the SanDisk 3 to the pc. ( U need the cd utilities and install software to the ROM )

I f your SD card is connected to the PC you can directly copy the music from the PC to the SD card. SD Drive is created by windows found in " My computer" same is through with the SanDisk 3 connected to the PC. you can directly copy the music files onto the sand disk.

Do not rate me if this not solve the sytem. notify if you need more solution. melnavz
