    I have a Sandisk 1gb and well first the problems started when Pokemon Diamond and Pearl didn't work, but now, whenever I put it into any computer to replace files, every computer I try freezes...
    I reformlatted it on my cellphone, still the same thing. I can't understand how this happened as I bought this microsd two months ago...
    Does anybody know a possible reason?

    this is just a wild guess. try re-formatting the micro sd on your computer.

    Sounds like a dodgy card to me. Bad contact?

    Does your computer freeze as soon as you connect the card, or just when you try to do something with it? Have you tried different card readers?

    I have tried about 4 different card readers, the X9 one, the R4 one, an SD card reader with an adapter, and a TF card reader.

    But the computer does acknowledge the fact there is a microSD card in the reader, but you cannot do anything with it? Tried using a different USB port?

    Does the card work properly in the cell phone?

    I can use the phone on my R4, my cellphone, when the comp recognises that a card reader was entered it freezes, I tried with another microsd and it worked, I knwpo that the prob is from my microsd.

    I would say card is dead. One of my cards starting doing that - freezing my computer -- now it's not recognized at all by any of my readers. I'm ordering a replacement.

    The prob is that every comp freezes, but not a device thats not a comp, I'm really getting annoyed!

    my micro sd card did the same thing, it still works when i plugged it in but it would freeze when i plugged it in my sd card reader, i ordered a new one, and i found out that the SD card adapter was the problem my old micro sd card worked fine, it was the adapter that was broken did you try swapping SD micro adapters?
