    You may have corruption.
    Backup saves and what you can off of it, then reformat it.

    It doesn't ask you to check the card, instead of asking you to format before it can be used?

    I actually have a zero byte folder resulting from a jksm crash while backing up saves. No other further problems resulted nor does Windows have any issue with it.

    Yeah, but you should still see if windows can access the sd first

    Copy everything off to a computer , then format the card if it consistent with asking you to format, card might be dying.
