Windows Media cannot read my music "all of a sudden"
My 2gb mini sd card for my pda, which was operating at about 30% of it's capacity, can only read 4 files. I've troubleshooted the setting under system/memory but still no luck. However, my computer can still read all the files that were previously on the card. What else is there to do?

hello there are two way u can do that, get a usb card reader and follow any of this process
1. put the micro sd card into the card reader and plug it to your computer then your system will see the card automatically, then open your window media player and the player will detect the card and you will synchronise musics from your windows media player libery to the card.
2. you can copy the music direct from your music folder in your computer and paste it on the micro sd card.
Check your mini SD card and see if it has the SDHC (high capacity) logo on it. Originally SD cards, including the mini SD, had a 2GB limit by protocol. The DC10 was introduced when this was the most advanced protocol. Since then the SDHC protocol has been introduced, but the DC10 is not compatible with SDHC. You need to get a mini SD, 2GB maximum capacity.
The card you are trying to use is likely a high capacity sd card (SDHC). This player does not support high capacity cards, it only supports microSD cards that are non-high capacity (I think most of them are usually 2GB or less, but you can find them up to 4GB).
This is the same deal with a lot of other people, including myself. You need a smaller SD card to transfer anything. The problem I've had is getting Windows to recognize my SD card when I insert it into my laptop. But the first issue you'd have is with a 2GB card, which isn't recognized in the SLVR. Also, some cards aren't compatible with Windows. Cheap ones like Transcend have issues being read and formatted by Windows, cause they're cheap to begin with. Get something from perhaps Crucial or Kingston. You're better off with a good brand anyways.
If the 4gb micro SD is a high capacity SD (it will say micro SDHC on it) your player may not be able to read SDHC cards, my sansa can't because it's the 'older version' it will read 2gb and below micro SD cards though (it sucked when I found out because I had just bought a 6gb micro SDHC)
Try to format the SD 2GB card with Fat32 to some volumes so u will have multiple drives on the same single SD card.
You can do it via card reader and format command from your PC.
If this does not help it is possible that the device can not read big size 2GB SD cards.
