microSD card wont read.. at all

by francisc0121 - 1/20/09 3:52 PM

first time in the forums, please forgive if i put this thread in a wrong place, or if i broke any rules

i was transfering files into my microSD card, when my computer froze, and i had to manually turn off my computer.

when i turned it back on, i couldnt open the file, it said "please insert a disk into Removable disk (H:)"

thinking it mus have been in another disk drive, i tried opening the other ones.

when that did not work, i safetly removed the card, and put it back in.

when that happened i got a message telling me that i had to format the microSD card, after clicking proceed, it told me that it could not format it and to check if it was a read only file, and to change it if it was

i searched online and found out that to change it i have to go to properties>general, and unclick "read only"

only problem was that there WAS no "read only" button to click on.
even when trying to put it in my cell, it cant read it

my other microsd cards work, so its not the drive

i used a usb microsd card adapter for it, and there is no "read only" slide on my card.

how do i fix this problem? please help

<<to avoid any confusion i also posted this thread in another help site, but i got no solutions yet>>
