If dirt is visible on the contacts and cannot be cleaned with a cloth, use some alcohol or a pencil eraser. 2- Google "sdformatter" and download the tool. Use it to format the card If these 2 options do not work, your card is most probably damaged. Good Luck m 0 l fuseless January 9, 2013 4:53:14 PM any update? m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
