My microSDHC is detected as G: on Windows 7 but won’t read/write or open. How can I get my 64GB SanDisk microSDHC working again?
- I have tried using cmd (in administrator) to write: ‘chkdsk G: /f’ or something along the lines of that. This does nothing at all – it just goes to the next line and stops.
- I have tried using cmd (in administrator) to write “format g:”. This just replies: “Insert new disk for drive G:” and “and press ENTER when ready…” I press enter and it also does nothing at all like the previous command.
- I also have tried to go to ‘Computer Management’ (Right click on computer -> manage) and right clicking G: but it doesn’t give me the option to format, which is a known solution to something like this.
- Right clicking the G: from ‘My Computer’ will make the mouse change into the ‘busy’ icon (the blue circle) and will make the green loading line at the top load forever. Clicking on it once and then clicking ‘Properties’ located on the top bar will also do this, and double clicking ‘G:’ will make ‘My Computer’ stop responding.
- My adapter also shows in ‘Devices and Printers’, but double clicking will make it stop responding. I can, however, get into the properties – but this just shows the G: as a device with 0 bytes on it that ‘is working properly’ (but it’s not). This adapter works with microSD cards of the exact same make too.
- I have tried other software to format it but it will not open as long as the microSD is plugged in — when it isn’t in, it opens but there is nothing to format.
I am terribly sorry if my question is worded badly. I need a fix that will make my card usable again. I don’t really care about the info on it.
