I have an Acer Aspire 5745G laptop that can read SDHC and a brand new LG optimus that can also read SDHC.
I removed the stock SDHC 2GB micro card from the LG optimus and replaced it with a Sandisk 8GB micro card from my old phone.
I downloaded a few things to the Sandisk 8GB card and then removed it from the new phone, placed it into an adapter, and plugged it into my computer. I did not unmount it before doing this which probably screwed things up.
Anyways I edited a few files on the 8GB card, added some songs, then placed the card back into my phone. I got an error message saying “card is damaged”. I tried to reformat (I hit “Format”) but nothing happens. I also tried to mount the card, and nothing happens. So the phone detects that something is there but is unable to do anything.
I removed the card and place it back into my computer but the card isn’t even recognizable. Well, for brief weird moments it is (one time I ejected the CD tray and the drive that the SDHC card was on was visible for like 3 seconds) but overall I can’t get it to show up. It doesn’t show up under My Compupter > Manage > Disk Management.
I guess I screwed it up when I ejected it without unmounting. Is there anything that can detect screwed up cards like this and allow you to just start over? I don’t care about the data. Thanks
*edit: Also, I have hidden files & folders visible
