    I recently tried to format my SD card.
    While formatting, I accidently cancled the format.
    From then on, my computer cant access the SD card, it freezes windows explorer.
    Also I have tried SD Formatter if that helps.
    Thanks, this is the only SD card I have, so I would like to get it fixed than buy a new one

    Try shutting down your PC. Then insert the SD into your card reader, then power on your PC & Windows should perform a disk check on your corrupted SD card.

    I had exactly the same problem about a year ago & I followed these steps. Windows fixed all the corrupted files before it booted up. Once Windows had booted, I was able to access the card again & re-format it then.

    My bad, go to the downloads section on sdcard.org

    This is the direct link for the SD Formatter Tool

    http://www.sdcard.org/about/downloads/sdfv2000.exe

    That fixed my sd card when it was corrupt and unreadable by any source, no computer or camera could format it to make it work again but that tool saved it =]
