An SD card isn't usually used as Hard Drives as they don't contain enough space. Although they are getting bigger and bigger capacities all the time!

I think what your after is booting your computer off the SD card which will have Windows on it? Some computers can boot straight from the SD card, my old laptop used too!

What needs to happen is that you need to go into your BIOS settings (which are your motherboard settings) and in ther you can set boot sequence, so by default most are set to Hard Drive first. The computer looks there first for the operating System. So you need to tell your Motherboard to boot from your SD card 1st. Now your motherboard needs to be able to support this feature, my guess is that it probably wont.

Go into the BIOS and find the boot sequence and scroll through the available options, if SD is in there, set it. If not your motherboard wont support booting from SD.

Sd card format software


Start up a computer with Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7. Insert the SD card into an external memory card reader or into the computer's built in card reader. If it the first time a SD card has been inserted into the computer, Windows will recognize the SD card and automatically install drivers to read the memory card.

Go to the computer view by clicking on the windows start menu icon in the bottom right corner of the computer. In Windows 7 and Vista click "Computer". In Windows XP click "My Computer"

Right click on the SD drive under the computer heading. A dialog box with different options for the drive will appear. Click on "Format" to bring up the formatting dialog box.

Select the type of formatting (also known as file system format). In Windows XP or Vista there are several choices including FAT, FAT 32, and NTFS. In Windows 7 there is an added choice called exFAT formatting. This is an improved FAT formatting type with improved meta data capabilities. Choose the formatting type, name if the drive if desired, check or uncheck the "quick format" option, and press the "Start" button. When the SD card format is complete Windows will provide a notification.

Write protected memory stick


1.Look for a switch or button on the side of the micro SD card or adapter. It might have a lock/unlock symbol on it. 2.Move the switch to the "Unlocked" position to remove write protection. This position may also be labeled "R/W" for read/write. If you have no switch, continue to Step 3. 3.Download and install Sony EzRecover and attempt to use it to format the card (this will erase all content). If this doesn't work, try Step 4. 4.Delete and repartition the micro SD card using Windows XP. Select "Control Panel" > "Administrative Tools" > "Disk Management."
