    When I put my microSD in my PC, it says I have to reformat in order to be able to use it.
    But I don't wanna do that, there are about 3 GB's of DS roms on there, and most important my save games are on it.
    What can I do that back them up?

    this is why i back up my sd card regularly [​IMG]

    if it's not letting you even access it, there isn't much you can do then [​IMG]

    I just got that problem too a few days ago.I used a different micro SD adapter and jack it into a different USB port so I didn't have to format my micro SD but I'm not sure what caused the problem tho

    Can you right click -> explore from My Computer to access it? I think that's worked a few times for me.

    If not, then I dunno. Try it in a different computer/use a different MicroSD reader?

    Tried everything, different PC, different OS, different USB port, in an SD adapter, different reader, always gave me that same message [​IMG]

    I reformatted it, now I only have to download 3GB of DS roms and 500MB of porn [​IMG]

    EDIT: It just freaked out again. I couldn't acces it anymore. Formatting again, if that doesn't help I'm gonna buy a new one.
