I just put my SD MMC card into the card reader and it asked me if i wanted to format it, so i did cos otherwise it wouldnt read it...and now the capacity is FAT 512Kb instead of 128Mb!!! whats going on?

Can you format it in the item it is made for, ie camera etc?

its through a pda and it was fine in there, but the comp wanted it formatted its soooo frustrating...just bought software for dvd to pocket pc movie as well!!! ahhh

It should format in the PDA and be recognisable within windows. Is this not happening?

no it doesnt format in the Pda, (pda had pocket pc2002). windows does recognise it but only with a 512kb memory instead of a 128Mb memory....it was working yeaterday.

is there a special kit of software that restores SD MMC memory? i was looking on download.com by no joy..

any ideas?

You should never format or delete pix on a memory card whilst it is connected to your system - only do this on the camera itself.

You should also never connect/disconnect whilst the camera is still transferring data; usually there is a flashing small light to indicate that it is still operational.

A thought is that the mechanical write/protect switch on the card to prevent accidental erasures may be enabled; it's similar to the one you find on a floppy and usually there is a "Lock" arrow to indicate the required direction.
