    I've been having this problem for a few months now. Every time I insert an SD Card into my laptop's SD Card reader, it gives me a message saying the SD Card is corrupted. Then, when I scan the SD Card, it says there are no problems. I've tried this on 3 separate SD Cards, and it happens every time. If it helps, all 3 are SanDisk SDHC.

    Any suggestions for why this is happening would be nice.

    If not, eh, I can live with it.

    What is the exact error message and is the drive still accessible?

    Do you safely remove the SD card?

    Have you checked if the driver/firmware for the card reader is up to date?

    Sorry for the late response!

    1. "There's a problem with this drive. Scan the drive now and fix it" I guess I should've been more specific and not assumed it was corrupted. And yes, I can still access the drive.

    2. I'm not sure I understand what you mean by safely. I do eject the card properly and don't force it.

    3. Yes.

    2. He means using the icon on the bottom right of your taskbar to "Eject" the card, lettings windows release the card/usb drive before you pull it out. If for example you have windows explorer opened and showing the files on your card, and you remove it, then there is a possibility that files may get corrupted when you just remove the card, because maybe a software is currently accessing that card.

    I have that problem with one of my USB HDDs, I've just learned to ignore it.
    But I think backing it up, formatting it and copying the files back on might fix it.

    Happened to me a few times. Kind of annoying when you're setting up a 3DS for a9hl.
