    Alright, so a month ago, my PC does not recognize my MicroSD card. It says to reformat card again. Well, when I go to do that, it says " Cannot format card ". So basically, I can't add anything into it, nor reformat and delete all my data. I tried it on 2 computers using a SD card adapter, because the adapter that came with the M3 is worth crap ( worked, but now PC wouldn't recognize it ). Any help or ideas would be appreciate greatly.

    On another note, why is the M3 such bad build? The outer shell is kind of loose, and the MicroSD card does not click into place, therefor I have to tape it into place. Only after a month of usage.

    Try using SDFormatter 2.0 (http://gbatemp.net/index.php?download=1530)

    Try formatting it in a phone or a camera. That sometimes works when Windows refuses to format a memory card.

    Ok, just to clarify. I formatted on my camera, and it worked. It deleted all my games and saves. Hopefully, I hoped I could add stuff to it again, but when inserted with my SD adapter to my laptop, it asks to " Insert a disk " or something like that. I researched around and I think the cause of it was because of the crappy ( I use the term VERY loosely ) MicroSD USB adapter included with the M3. I hope I could get it returned for a new one.

    They're all crap that they have (cheap and sort of a gimmick). I doubt they would give you a new one in exchange, just get one or buy one.
