    Most likely defective, but what kind of micro sd do you have?

    my dad works for nintendo.
    if it doesn't show up in F even in another card reader and\or computer you can get a refund if you are still on time..

    is your sd card reader sdxc compatible?

    My 1GB microSD (nothing important on it) did this recently (just plugged it in and it got super mega hot); it was about 7 years old, though, so it lived its life well.

    Basically, both your SD and mine are (almost literally based on the heat they kick out) toast. :3
