I had a 1GB SD card. It died on me. Just went bunk. Fine. I got another one, this time hi-speed to go with my new awesome camera. I took some pictures on it, but then when I put it in my SD reader, even tho it comes up in My Computer, I can't open it. It says it needs to be formatted. Fine, I was prepared to lose the pictures that are on it so I went to format. But then it said I can't be formatted! WTF?? It's not the reader or camera or anything since they both work just fine with my 512MB card. One thing I noticed was that when I put the card in the reader or camera, it tended to push the little lock switch a bit. Maybe this is the problem? I tried holding in place with a microscopic piece of tape but, while it kept it from getting locked, didn't solve my problem. Why can't I format the card?? And why does SD hate me?
