I tried to copy a game like Rollercoaster Tycoon and it won't read.
But on another sd card from 8gb it does read.

I already have defragment it in a tool and the one on pc. Or do I need to do it several times?
So to be clear I have no problems with other games just some like this one.

- Buy a better card reader. I use Kingston Mobilelite G4.
- Re-format SD card with Panasonic SD Formatter.

dont defrag a flash memory... (sd card for example)
if you get fragmentation problems just move to pc, format it, and put the stuff back...

That is what I do when I encounter fragmentation on a flash drive. I wonder if it is safe to defrag solid state drive with a defragger?

The problem is I got a slow usb reader got a fast one but won't recognize 32gb it sometimes does with a bit plugging.

Sounds like it's either your SD card or the fast reader is faulty, did you try another SD card of same size on the fast reader?

what i said, flash memory.. ssd is still flash memory (if i am not mistaken)
Oh yeah, brain fart on my part LOL. I know some defragmentation software like perfect disk has SSD mode in them for Solid State Drive. My guess is that it is nothing more then a marketing fluff?

So that's why I recommend a better reader - a better quality reader.
It is a bit faulty I opened it once and got probably broken at some points.
I think it worked also perfect with 32gb before no problems with other cards just this one.
The sd card it self isn't defect it is just new and it fits perfect in a usb 2.0 reader which is to slow.
