SD card reading problems

  2neat 21:06 12 May 2008

I can't format my sd card with windows xp.
The card is corrupt and cant be read.
Any ideas please....

If your card is from a camera, format it in the camera.

its from my mio pda. Can't find a utility on pda to format it.

If you connect the pda via usb with the card inserted, can you then try a re-format? Only guessing though, as I have never owned a pda.

will try in camera at work tom.
Windows is reading the card size and puts it up as E: so fingers crossed. I know they are very cheap now so wont loose any sleep over it ;)

OK - good luck, but as you say, not really a catastrophe .........

Hmm, as it is showing up as E: can you not right-click on it and then on Format?

keeps saying windows can't complete the format.
Will bin tomorrow if camera format wont work.
