You can see there the drive of your SD card showing FAT32, right click the SD card drive and format (make sure you backup your files). Change FAT32 format to NTFS, thick quick format and wait when its done. That’s it, you now have a working SD card. Good luck!


I think the problem may be OS dependent. Try running the cruzer blade within XP. I found it to work when I did but when I went over to Win 7 and higher I had problems. I have this theory there may be a virus causing it.

I wonder if there exists any XP systems any more?  That was an OS 20 yrs ago,  hasn't been supported in over a decade, and the hardware it was on has to be all dead at this point.
