    For some reason my microsd won't be read and always freezes when i put it in the pc.
    When I put it in it shows autoplay (which is wrong because I don't have autoplay on the microSD) and then goes away after doing nothing.
    It won't show up when I put it in the reader and if I put the reader in first and then the memcard, it'll freeze the pc.
    Panasonic SD formatter doesn't work either because it freezes as well...

    Can someone help?

    EDIT: also realised that my SCDS won't read it.

    Sounds more like it's your reader.
    Try using a different one, or try formatting it in any way possible, on a portable device, on a different OS or a different PC.

    Don't have any other pc's but I did try it with another reader and that didn't work either.

    EDIT: I also notice that my memcard gets REALLY real quick. Dunno if thats helpful though...

    This happened to one of my Micro SD cards I had to put it in a Mobile phone and format it, before my PC would recognize it. A Digital Camera and a SD card adapter work also.
