    it all messed up when i decided to use my sd card as storage for my xbox stuffs.
    anyways,

    link
    those are screen shots.

    my camera says to format the sd card.
    windows doesnt recognise it.
    i used the storage management thingy in windows and it wont let me do anything.
    any simple solutions.

    thankyou!!!

    Looks like a mess, try the SD Formatter utility from SD's site:

    http://www.sdcard.org/consumers/formatter/

    If that doesn't work, try this in command prompt as Administrator:

    1. Diskpart
    2. List Disk
    3. Select Disk 1 (Replace 1 with number reflecting your SD Card)
    4. clean
    5. create partition primary
    6. active
    7. format fs=fat32 quick
    8. assign

    Be sure to select the right disk number, you don't want to accidentally clean out one of your hard drives.

    Either method you try will wipe everything off the SD card, just saying in-case you wanted to preserve data on it.
