    Hey guys, I was going to back up my SD card so when I get a new SD next month I can transfer my files there. Problem is, my computer can't transfer the files on the SD. I tried with 2 different laptops, same result. It doesn't give an error message or anything, but this didn't happen a while ago, it just started happening now. Is there a file that may be preventing this? I was able to copy and paste a small file I tried, but then tried a folder and had no luck. Any help is appreciated.

    So what exactly happens if there's no error message?

    I drag and drop my files and then nothing happens, not even a loading bar appears, and it just stays like that as if I've done nothing.

    Guess you could try using TeraCopy or something similar.

    Hello,


    Is your SD card formatting properly?

    everything depends on the capacity, format in FAT or
    FAT32 ??

    I believe it's FAT32, but I'm confused because I have a backup from a few months ago... Not sure why it doesn't work now.

    You could try another computer. Bad card reader or maybe a bad driver.
    You could also try the command line tools xcopy or robocopy if on windows.

    I think I will go with TeraCopy if nothing works out. There's one other computer in our house so I might try with that one first.
