    2 choices.

    1) Reformat, best done if you use common sense and back up files from your microSD.
    2) Use something better than Windows Explorer (under Vista, which seems to hate any microSD I throw at it, especially sandisk) such as linux, and see if you can find any files on it.

    Maybe this is a bit offtopic but its the same subject. To prevent IE "crashing"/corrupting my sd card what do i do? I always use "Safe remove"(i think its translated to that. My windows is danish.) on my USB reader and so far i havent had any problems.

    1 more question : I have an inbuilt cardreader and if i use safe remove on that it disappears. I think it uses USB so i cant really replug it when i want to read SD again because its build into my pc. So i always use "Push out/dismount" on the reader/disc thingie and that seems to work. Is this the correct way to prevent corrupting my sd's? [​IMG]

    Wow this post really got confusing and meseed up [​IMG]. I hope you guys understand my question anyway [​IMG]

    My pc(with vista) doesn't read anything on it anymore, it just says that i have to format my sd card [​IMG]
    I can't make a backup of my files and what do you mean with: Use something else then Microsoft Explorer?

    btw, this is how i think about my sd card: [​IMG]

    Well if you have a mobile phone with USB cable that can read your SD card. I crashed another SD card before by just pulling it out without safe removing. Vista wanted to format it. My phone could read it and i used it to back up all my files before formatting it [​IMG] My 1.0 usb's in my keyboard were also able to read it even though 2.0 said it was corrupt O.o

    I never use safety remove. I just unplug it out as soon i think theres no more files running.
