    This seems to simply be an issue of the bubbles for my apps not showing up. not sure how to go from here because i cant use QCMA to pull vitashell from my laptop as it gives me an error code (C0-11272-5)

    I put it into my laptop and it prompted me to format, i did: ExFat32 ( i think its called that) and default allocation size, no labels

    .... please dont tell me you using the same sd2vita adapter for both the old microSD and the new 64gb, because you did nothing wrong at all, so the fault must come from the adapter, which mean you should be careful of that adapter, it may scratch your microSD pin and destroy your memory card. At least prepare a new adapter is best for this case.

    Because the sd2vita adapter has very bad quality contact, it can break after you take out the microSD card, and then scratch the next one you put in, i got a 256gb die because i did not know and keep pop the card in and out until i realize the damn thing claw my card to death. I suggest you want to try a new adapter because seem like you did nothing wrong and the same mistake i had before.

    Okay so i'll purchase a new one, but it doesn't entirely make sense to me, since the 16gb one works fine on the adapter and i take it out all the time to transfer games and stuff, thats all

    You can check the card contacts, it leave scratch mark.
    In case you want to make sure of data copy between 2 microSD is okay or not, on PC enable view hidden file and system file, you can copy them all.
    In case you want to check if a card is corrupt or not, connect the card to PC and use command promt chkdsk /f to check and fix it.
    Good luck

    Where did you buy the card? Seems more like a bad sd card.

    If that is the case then it should work. But the fact it shows corruption it sure seems weird for a new card.

    Few days ago I changed from 64 to 200GB and didn’t have any issue.

    Your 16 GB is working fine. Which version of adapter are you using. Mine is sd2vita 5.0 and just have looked at my sd contacts but nothing is scratched.

    I recommend trying another SD card. Buy a 64GB somewhere in store nearby.

    I bought a sandisk 200 GB from a retailer here in Holland. So far so good and if you just need 64 GB those aren’t that expensive I believe.

    Chinese sellers are not that reliable in my opinion. Don’t have that much experience with ebay. But you would not be the first to get fake sd cards.

    I have used a fake card in the pas on a 3DS gateway card. After writing half of the fake card with games the first games got corrupted. Seems the same with your card.

    But the vita is depending on alot more then just game files. Take my advice and try for that matter a 32 GB sd card from store near by. Worth a shot because this isn’t gonna solve I think.

    EDIT: My fake looked legit to at first glance. Package was like a real Sandisk. But comparing some info on the internet about actual GB that windows reported were about 0.2 GB off compared to an original.

    Sd2vita is also very picky on fake cards.

    fuck okay... thank you, i'll keep you updated

    Just to clarify though, the sd card gets recognized by my system, but i cant copy any apps over through QCMA because of an error, meanwhile i cant move apps manually to the sd card because they dont appear as bubbles on my screen. definitely go with buying an sd locally??

    well my sd card when i go to format it says its 61.3gb, but i just assumed it was fine because my 16 only displays as 14 and it worked fine

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    though i had my suspicions because the sd card struggled to fit into the adapter it came in too

    Formated 61.3 is alot for a real 64 GB. If your 16 just gives 14 GB do the math.

    58.2 GB is more likely to be correct.

    you should get a sandisk sd card from amazon, they often go on sale and are way cheaper on there. i got a sandisk card in store and the price was double and the storage was half of what i got on amazon.
