    I have been using my SD card for quite some time and everything still loads great except Wad Manager 1.4 Modded Version, and all of the USB Loader settings dont work now. They worked before and now they dont. Any clue why all of a sudden certain parts on my SD card dont work.

    copy all files off sd to PC then format using panasonic sd formatter, copy everything back onto sd and it will work.

    Thanks MadBob. That pretty much fixed it. I tried it numerous times and it only did it one other time. That is still weird why it did it in the first place. Hopefully everything stays normal.

    The panasonic sd formatter will do it correctly for you. use it. The windows format tool doesn't do sd cards properly. 9/10 using the panasonic formatter fixes the issue.


    Panasonic SD formatter

    odd. my advice is just try formatting it again. Do a full format, not a quick one.

    did you do a full format, or a quick format?

    if it was a full format, than yeah..your card may be corrupted.

    initially quick, which gave 1gb reading when complete then full but still same outcome..........

    atleast i backed up the card first so just put it on another card.....and try to see if my initial error ret =1 has been fixed........

    yeah, sorry to say, but it looks like your card is dying.

    out of curiosity, what brand card was it?
