    That doesn't sound good...maybe it's a bad card, maybe it's a fake.
    You should chase that up with them, the Kingston 2gb I got seems to be legit.

    Could be defective too. Not too sure why it's asking you to reformat it unless its already in a format that can't be read by your PC (I am assuming you have windows operating system).

    I'm glad it has been sorted out as I was planning on bundling a 4gb mini with a future purchase
