  1. Try this with it plugged in.

    Open up a command promp with Admin Rights. (Click Start, Type in CMD, right click and run as administrator)
    Type in each line and then press enter. The letter X will represent the Disk number it list.

    diskpart
    list disk
    select disk X
    clean

    If it gives you an error here the SD card is bad. otherwise continue.

    now click on start and type in diskmgmt.msc

    you should find your 16GB SD card with a black bar in it. Right click on and it select new simple volume. Just click next though everything and see if it formats then. If it doesn't the SD card is bad.

    ok, i got lost when i wrote diskmgmt.mcm, a big list pops up with functions. what of those should, i tried adding a volume and formating (formating just said there where no volume selected), and i tried to add a partition, but got lost

  5. hmmm clean should change it. Sounds like a bad SD card to me though.
