    Ok...then problem with my sd card is that is full..i know what u might be thinking "So...how does it hate you just clear some files away"
    Ok ill tell when this all started. I wanted to make a backup NAND so i made one but i couldnt find it anywhere on my sd card..so i decided to make another one once again i couldnt find it, thne im like ok theres something wrong here then i did it again...i got the NAND.bin file but with 0bytes so i checked properties of my sd card it said it was full.
    So anyone know how i can see these NAND files that are invisible? (there not in any folders i checked)

    IV had this problem many times so I know were your cumming from

    There is an easy fix and you don’t need to format your card

    1) Insert your card into your SD reader or on your pc or laptop
    2) 2 click on my computer on your desktop
    3) Look for your SD card its something like (Removable Disk F:)
    4) Right click and chose properties
    5) Click on the tools tab
    6) Click on the error-checking button (check now)
    7) In the check disk options select both "auto fix file system errors" and "scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors"

    It will take about 10 sec depending on your SD Card size

    Now that’s done. You’re not finished. The files that were bad are now visible in a hidden folder on
    Your SD card you need to Del them don’t worry your not losing any data there just bad files
    That was found by the error checker.

    There will be a hidden folder on your SD card something like folder.000 with all the bad files in.
    delete this and you will have free Space again.

    hope this helps it should do ythe trick

    Right there’s something clogging up you SD, it might be corrupted, I know its sound sad
    But your SD card may be failing.

    just a quick note What make is your SD card because bootmii doesn’t support all SD cards

    The only other option open to you is

    1) Backup all your files to a hdd (I would do this anyway just in case your SD is failing)
    2) Follow the step I told you about in the previous post (don’t need to Del hidden folder)
    3) Format your card using the quick option then do a normal format
    4) Copy the files back one by one but make sure that you only copy files that you want
    (I.E. don’t copy files that look suspicious rearly big files when you know thay should be small)

    If that doesn’t work then your SD may have been corrupted beyond repair, if it’s still under
    Warrantee some manufactures give you a 5 year warrantee like sandisk send it to them
    They will fix it but most of the time they will send you a brand new one.

    It’s a bummer when you’re flash or SD card dies I berried mine in the garden with a little cross
