    So recently I was dumb and tried to use my 8GB Micro SD card on my XBOX 360. It made me reformat it. After that it became unusable on my m3 Real. So I went into Disk Utility (Mac OSX) and reformatted it to 1 Partition (Master Boot Record). It now works again, however it is very slow. It is probably three times as slow as it used to be when I copy files to it from my computer. What should I do? Can it be fixed, or do I have to get another card? What is a good card to get?

    Well when you formatted the sd card, you probably formatted it to something like FAT32, which in my experiance, not sure about anyone else, is slower for me then the standard FAT16, so that's probably the reason it's slow, if you have a pc back up the files, format to FAT, which is FAT16, try doing that.

    format a 8gb micro to FAT??? lol

    try format it again in your Xbox 360 to change it to Xbox 360 compatible, then use the Xbox 360 to return it to normal

    If you have a PC, use the Panasonic SD formatter to reformat it. Otherwise try formatting it in a phone/ camera/ MP3 player etc.

    Okay well good point :/ anyways do what the poster above me said, go grab Panasonoc SD formatter, that should do it.

    And can you format it in the 360 to make it incompatible? Because I don't think you can :\
