    Has anyone experienced this?
    My SD card can't be read by windows after the new firmware update...
    Tried both the supplied reader with the CycloDS, the SD convertor and slot on my computer and the usb convertor that came with my sd card...

    Cyclo DS reads it fine, but obviously, you cant update the information on the drive, back things up or do anything requiring a computer.

    I'm a bit worried, as I can't see any way this can be fixed - even if a firmware update is released, there would be no way to get it onto the card!

    Have you tried restarting your computer? That usually does the trick for me.

    Nope, that didnt work...
    After a few hours of trying stuff and failing, i 'solved' it like this:

    Install PC Inspector: http://www.pcinspector.de/Sites/file...htm?language=1

    Connect your SD card and search for lost drives. It will find it and allow you to get most of your data off.

    Then download Panasonic's SD formatter: http://www.sdcard.org/about/downloads/

    Format your card.

    Copy data back on. For the time being, i can read the card in both windows and Cyclo
