Apparently my 8gb Samsung micro SD is jacked up.
Cause: I was transferring one of my Gamecube games onto this Micro SD (through an Adapter) and i noticed the transfer speeds got lower and lower until It stopped transferring the data all together :wtf:
Issue: My micro SD wont show up on a computer nor will it show up in my phone and it just freezes my 3DS whenever it is inserted.

I was thinking the transferred data that wasn't fully transferred corrupted my Micro SD.
I just want to know your thought as to what happened.

One of my MemorySticks behaved the same. It all began when I was playing games on my PSP and suddenly the console stopped loading any data from the stick:blink:...

if you can't format it, even with diferent adapters\readers, the only thing you can do is get a new one..

some sd card manufacters offers a lifetime warranty or some years (in europe all electronics have 2 year warranty minimum...

you can ask the manufacter\ or the place you bought it, if it has warranty (if you bought recently)

i had a kingston micro sd card, that failed after some time.. now it is not even detected.. maybe it was counterfeit, i am not sure..

I used to own a Kingston MicroSD with 8GB of capacity...One day it failed and all of my photos inside were gone. It couldn't be a fake one, as I purchased it from a legal store. Maybe Kingston is not so reliable.
