    Alright well my Kingston 2gb microsd is acting really weirdly.

    It was plugged into my computer using usbReader1 and i was transferring a game over [120 mb] and at the same time i was games on my card.
    All of a sudden it says "Device G cannot be found" and my transfer was cancelled.

    Ive gone through 3 different memory card readers and even a SD card reader on my computer and none can read my card. They just say "Please insert a disk into drive g" when i click on it.

    The strangest thing is that on my supercard and my friend's supercard, the memory card still reads and i can still play games.

    So what is going on? Did i corrupt my memory card?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    The exact same thing happened to me, it sounds like the boot sector on your micro sd is corrupt, and your card might be permanently damaged.

    Download Killdisk which you can get Here
    If you can get Killdisk to see your micro sd, use the KD_WIN.exe and try erasing it using the F10 option, if you get any errors while erasing then your micro sd knackered.
