    Put it in your computer if you can and let it repair the files. I had the same problem and that fixed it.

    i'm having this exact problem. when i plug it into the computer it can't read the card at all. it says please insert disk into g drive. and when i go to properties it says capacity 0 bytes free space 0 bytes

    tried doing error checker and nothing happened.

    i just got this card off tiger direct. its a class 10 card. i have a class 4 at home i'm going to try. really annoyed this is happening like 2 days after i got it

    When you get home - try putting it in your computer. If you can copy the files off and then format as FAT32. Could be a bad card. Is it an off brand or is it a Sandisk or Kensgington?

    I need to try this, too. How do you put something so tiny in a computer? I do no see a slot anywhere near this tiny on my desktop or my laptop? My sd card is a Sandisk that came w/my phone.

    You need to use a microSD card adapter... it is the same size as a regular SD card. here is a pic to give you an idea of what im mean... http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:A...kKS8RVZdrVckc7

    This adapter is or is not the same thing as a card reader?

    The adapter is like a card reader. You can use either.

    I guess I made a mistake, but I formatted my SD card on the phone and now it won't read on my computer at all, no matter if I put it in a adapter or anything. any fixes?

    I'm having the same problem. I inserted my card into my computer to format it but it said it was write protected. How do I go on to fix the problem from here?
