    Formatting 1gb SD SANDISK card?

    Hey, my laptop has a built in SD/MS/MMC/SM reader. When i tried reading my new Sandisk 1gb SDIO card it would lag out and give me an error saying it needs to be formatted. When i click format it give me another error saying something about it not being able to format.

    I popped it in my XV6600 and transferred files fine via ActiveSync. I tried it again on my Laptop SD reader and it still doesnt read the card.

    Ive used the Built in memory card read with other SD cards and a memory stick also and it never gave me problems... Am i doing something wrong?

    Any help would be appreciated, Thanks!

    (i tried searching under "Sandisk Format" but didnt pull up anything useful)

    Try formatting it with Pocket Mechanic (search Pocket Gear).

    I've actually seen a few SD cards that have done this. Basically they are defective and need to replaced.
