I just recently purchased a Samsung Evo 64 GB micro sdxc card for my gateway and some of my games will not show up when I press select to choose the rom. I have a total of 22 and only 19 show up, the other 3 are shown as blank spaces. I reformatted the card from exfat to fat32 and the only change was the 20th rom would show up, but when I start it, the "an error has occurred" message pops up on the touch screen. Is there anyway to fix this?

Do something faster: put 8gb (or more) of files on the SD. After that, put a video on it and try to play it.
That's not a very good way to check it, since we don't know the actual capacity of his card. It could be 8, 16 or 32 GB. Since he can fit 19 games on it which all work, I'm guessing the card is at least 16 GB, but it could be 32. The best way is just to use h2testw.

I think it's a fake SD card, if you bought it from ebay there's a high chance (if you didn't pay attention) that you got ripped off.

Yeah I know, but h2testw is so slow.

Anyway I don't know if a SD falsifier will use 32 or 16 gb sd card to modify. I think they preffer cheaper cards like 8gb (or less).

Since you have no patience just return it and order it elsewhere.
Who said I had no patience?! It's been running since I posted it had 2 hours left; now its at 15 minutes

I did buy it from ebay as an auction so you might be right.

How did your SD card do on h2testw??
If it shows a lot of corrupt / broken sectors it's most likely a fake.

So far it's showing about 14.5 gb is corrupt. I'll just have to go buy a new card in the store.

Yep, it's a fake. Before you go out and buy a new SD card see if you can work it out with the ebay seller for a refund.
These fake SD cards have seen a rise lately on ebay, I swear it's like 40% of SD cards on eBay are fake (some more obvious than others).
