    Just bought a brand new micro SD and now win xp wont let me format it. it just says : "The disk in drive H cannot be formatted". I´m using the SD-adapter that came with the card. Dont have a cardreader, could this affect it?


    Thankful for any help!

    Did you check to make sure the write protect switch on the adapter isn't set to 'On'? [​IMG]

    I´m guessing by that you mean the thing mentioned as "lock"? In that case I´ve made sure its not on "lock", although I have tried both of it.

    edit: I´ve checked it again, its definately not write-protected

    Could be your card reader, or your card could be bad...

    Small change Windows is being stupid, and something is corrupted in the registry, lol, it's happened to me once where I just reformated the comp, and it worked, but it was for a floppy disc when I did this. I'd say its your card maybe. Try formating it on a differenct computer.

    That cardreader was built-in on my laptop, maybe that caused the problems. Anyway I know used my other computer and connected the micro-sd through my PDA, and it worked. Not the best way but what do you do [​IMG]

    It really depends on how finicky the card reader is. I know the SD card reader on my dell laptop don't like certain cheapie SD cards but it always works with the more typical stuff like sandisk.
