    Backup your files onto your PC then Format the MicroSD card. After that put Wood R4 Firmware and try it. If it boots, try putting games onto the MicroSD card and check too see if they work.

    Looks like you'll need to do a reformat. Copy all the stuff on your microSD card and reformat it using http://filetrip.net/file.php?id=10976

    EDIT: Ninja'd. If your computer does not recognise it as formatted, you probably don't have any other options. This is why I regularly make a backup of my microSD card.

    Did you try another Card Reader or a different computer? I remember having to try on my 2nd computer as my first one would not read it and wanted me to reformat it.

    I dont know if the computer would matter because i saved the files on this computer before. Unless that doesnt matter then ill ask my pops for the PW to another comp.

    R4DS Functionality:
    Supports MicroSD Card, FAT16 or FAT32

    Just read that from the box haha
    Either will be fine.
