    Hey guys, while i was updating my firmware to AKAIO 1.6 my card suddenly stopped being detected by my computer. I tried putting my micro sd into my acekard it loaded up and read just fine. My question is do i need a new micro sd or do i need a new micro sd reader and where can i get a good reliable price thanks [​IMG]

    If it works fine in the Acekard, then its probably the reader.

    I sometimes got problems with SD adapter, and microsd cannot be recognized in card reader...

    Just unplug microSD from SD adapter and plug it back
    Or some dirt / dust on microSD/SD adapter pins - so clear it...

    btw. if you use acekard microsd usb reader - take it and throw it to the bin ---> it just died... [​IMG]

    i got a sd card with the micro sd card slot from london drugs it came with an 8gb micro sd but not sure if you can get it seperate im sure you can

    edit: try phone stores since most phones now a days take micro sd cards and will need a reader
