That is a common error HSBerger, but hardly anyone we know besides ourselves can solve this.

Great thread and website, very impressed by the great information on here. I wont go on posting links to our many many stories about this topic unless you all request me to, as many sites see this as spam.

We are developing tools to help those people that are having major issues with loosing data on microSD cards. Many of the cards produced these days are becoming damaged, bent etc. There is no rhyme or reason for these issues, they just happen. microSD's showing a size of 31MB is becoming common, it's a bad situation, it means the card is badly damaged. You will need assistance from an educated professional. :) Yay, right? Well there are some that DO know what's up here. This I promise. :victory:

We are consulting directly with NASA and act as the primary lab for such cases daily, we are in business for over 15 years. There is a sense of desperation these days in dealing with damaged and lost data on microSD's. We are at about a 45% success rate no matter what has happened to a microSD. Many of them are reported as the wrong size, many are not recognized and some have obvious issues such as breaks, cracks etc.

No matter what others say anywhere there is hope for you all that have major issues. microSD cards are considered monolith devices (monolithic). USB sticks and regular SD cards these days can be made with NAND wafers or a complete package, what we call in the industry a monolith storage device. We can get inside these devices by taking off layers with special machinery and we also can use many other options to get around the damage.

I am also looking to collaborate with others on this topic that are engineering minds with experience on this topic. It's a big problem these days as we dig into iPhones, SSD's etc. We are dealing with all storage devices, mostly new technology and we have a global network with some amazing gear-heads to solve all these problems... but I am trying as fast as possible to increase the success rates and expand knowledge on such data recovery cases so please let me know if you are interested in staying in touch ongoing.

I will only say below in my signature who we are and hope we can share and help this thread and community with future success stories, if anyone has questions and MUST have a solution feel free to reach out to me/us.

SOURCE: SanDisk microSD/microSDHC card not working for my computer

Hi there!!!

I can understand your issue..

When you say if you connect the card into phone and connects to the computer and gets an error message as I/O drive error then i'd say the file format in the card is not recognized by the computer.

I'd suggest you to format the card through the computer. Here is the steps :

1) Open My Computer
2) Right-clicking on Removable Disk
3) Select Format, select the checkbox for "Quick Format".

Hereby check this screen shot

Get a Micro SD card (4 or 8 GB) then start over. The maps are 2.2 GB in size so 500 meg is not enough. the SD card will solve all your issues.

Take off write protection on SanDisk SDHC Card 4 GB


SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Updating maps on garmin nuvi 1390t. Won't take 4g/sdhc card


You are correct. The 1390t works with microSD cards. While microSDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible.
You need to use microSD cards 2GB and smaller.

Cant view map on gps


When you go past 4gigs on a micro SD card it becomes HC (high capacity I believe) and will not work with most Garmins. The 2 gig's the limit.
