    ive had a 4gb micro sd card for about 3 years now for my ds. even though it works fine in my ds, recently its been giving a Input/output error on windows and "not readable" on my mac.

    is there anyway i can backup this card to transfer my roms e.t.c to another one?

    any help appreciated.. [​IMG]

    Have you tried a different micro sd card reader? The micro sd card itself may not be faulty.

    format it, with Panasonic SD Formatter. Back-up first. Find it in FileTrip.net

    Or, as mentioned, try a different card reader (such as a USB -> SD -> MicroSD combination), one that uses different drivers from the one you're currently using. Sometimes it's the drivers that go strange when dealing with specific cards. Sometimes it's simple a matter of worn/dirty contacts.

    Last time it happened to me, I just tried taking it in and out a few times (it was a kinda brainless moment) and it worked on the 5th try. Don't ask me why.
