SD card problem

Whilst transferring mp3's from my laptop to my mp3 player which has a 256 mb SD card slotted in to it my laptop ran out of battery. This had the effect of wiping out everything on my SD card. This is not a problem in itself, except that my SD card does not work at all now. I'm unable to format it using XP or my pocket pc (which has worked before) as the SD card is no longer recognised as a valid disk using my card readers. I would be grateful for any ideas as to how to get the card formatted so it works again. Thanks

looks like you need a new SD card.
some cards come with quite a long warranty, so you might be able to get it replaced. i would certainly contact the manufacturer's and explain the problem. Good luck
ps, you should state the make and model of all concerned equipment.

Your experience is sadly one of the reasons why you shouldn't remove such card types whilst they are in read/write mode, use the appropriate close mode or before you switch your system off.
