    I was trying to put some files on to a SD card and for some reason my SD read randomly decides to dismount my SD card while the files where copying. My PC doesn't seem to read the card anymore. But my wii does, I had some homebrew, Wiiware, VC and game wbfs files on it and they all seem to work fine. the wii says the card has 0 blocks left and I can not seem to beable to delete any files on the SD card from the wii either. It just reads most of the files fine. As in Pokemon Battle Revolution and the USB loader channel forwarder don't work properly anymore after the corruptions.

    Is there any hope to fix this?

    that is probably that the nand of the sd card has reached its end of life
    the best you can do is copy everything to your pc because you can lose it

    first off make sure your card reader is not the problem, some card readers are really crappy so check for that and replace it, you can also check for bad sectors on the sd card (when you get a working card reader that is) and try to defrag the data, if that all fails it's time to get a new sd card unfortunately.

    I/O error? try formatting under a *NIX OS (LINUX, UNIX, OSX, etc). Apart from that I can't think of anything else.

    HP USB Storage Format Tool
    Panasonic SD Formatter
    HDD Low Level Format Tool.

    For me, the best of all is the HP tool. It recovers your SD, Pendrive and any memory you can connect to a computer. Itt repairs the memory but the data will be gone.
