    so my micosd is corrupted, it wont format with anything. (panasonic SD formatter, the standard one, camera)

    on my computer when i plug it in using my usb reader it says "please insert a disk into F"

    and on another computer it says "Something something is not formatted, would you like to format it?" or something along those lines.


    Is there a way to like force format it?

    Mine had the same problem, I re-formatted it over 30 times and still nothing

    I contacted sandisk and turns out I got a "fake" micro sd from e-bay


    I ended up buying another one, from a retail store.

    try put the SD card in your AK2 again then you boot up a working game and you let the game boot up and run for some sec than turn of the ds and try put it in you pc again.

    There was a tool sdfv2000, that used to be on the SD association website, I think it might be a low level formatter.

    From googling http://www.mediafire.com/?rxrxhmvpnpf virus scan it first though.

    edit: checked and it's a SFX, so you can open it in WinRar instead of executing it, but the application looks like it's just version 1 of the Panasonic SD formatter.

    There is an application for USB flash drives that will tell you the actual physical composition of the drive, the memory chips size and manufactuer, and allow you to chnge the reported size. It's what the fakes use to change the size of drives like you find on eBay.

    I've not found a similar version for SD cards, but it's what you need.

    Try this one http://hddguru.com/content/en/software/200...el-Format-Tool/

    You could also try formatting it in a Camera etc.
