    Have you tried running a chkdsk/scandisk on the MicroSD card?

    Your Micro SD card is corrupted, back up what you can and reformat it.

    Right click on the drive, select properties, open the Tools panel and there should be an option to perform error checking. Or alternatively open a command line prompt and enter chkdsk /f.

    You can fix the MicroSD by reformatting it, preferably with a tool like SD Formatter. It's probably impossible to restore any of your files.

    copy any .sav files you can rescue to the computer and then just format the mem card

    then right click the mem card in my computer and choose FORMAT then put your games back on with the .sav files [​IMG]


    your card has been corrupted ... dont panic a format will fix this although be prepared to loose some games/save games ... its unfortunate yes but at least it will work again once formatted [​IMG]

    the save files might still be accessible through your computer... but if not then you're just going to have to lose them
