    My T-Flash stopped reading my MicroSD.
    Anyone know of a solution?

    Try another machine, use a phone or just buy a new one. Its too hard to fix.

    You can buy a MicroSD + SD card combo. (You put the MicroSD card into the SD card).
    Or just use a mobile phone, I use my old nokia sometimes when I lose my normal card reader.

    SD cards can be read by almost everything nowadays. Even my printer has a slot for it. [​IMG]

    Pickup a USB media card reader, they're very affordable and come loaded with all sorts of slots to read every kind of media card imaginable including microSDs.

    I suppose this is a continuation of the READ!!URGENT! thread.

    When my microSD reader died, I replaced it with a $15 Transcend multi-card reader from newegg.com, and have been very happy ever since.

    This really isn't that huge a question.
    If it'll read/write to SDHC, and you can afford it, get it.


    EDIT: Looks like the price has come down in the past year.

    When mine died, I got a new one from the markets near my place, cost me $2.50 AUD.

    FireGrey, depending on what state your in, I can tell you where to get it for $2.50

    Its a bit high priced, but its close to where you live and doesn't require an online purchase. [​IMG]
