Hi, encountered this problem earlier today and, being the anal neat freak that I am, needed to fix it ASAP, so was wonderin if anyone could help.

I have a 4GB SD card that I was using as extra memory for my wii console, but when I bought a new phone, started using it as extra memory for songs, photos and the like. This was fine for a while until my phone stopped copying files to my memory card. I also noticed that a new file had popped up on the memory card when browsing it on my phone, with an odd name. I finally inserted it into my laptop, and when I first clicked it, it gave me an I/O error (I can't remember exactly what it said, sorry) then acted as if the card wasn't inserted whatsoever. After taking the card out and putting it back in a few times, it loaded as normal, but then i noticed a few files that looked rather odd:
Attached File  Odd file pic 1.jpg   78.59KB   1 downloads
I tried to delete them but got this message:
Attached File  Odd file pic 2.jpg   73.89KB   1 downloads
I tried renaming the files to something shorter but had no luck. I also noticed the file sizes. These files alone amount to almost 6Gb, which is more storage than my card has. I checked my free space on my card (1.21 GB) and can still move other things to and from my card, but I really want to find out what these odd files are, where they came from and why I can't seem to get rid of them. Can anyone help? ]

Thanks in advance


EDIT: just realised I put this in the Vista forum when it should have been in the External hardware forum. Many apologies.

Both your images are coming up with the following error.

[#10171] You do not have permission to view this attachment.

Not sure why that error is showing up.

Is there some other way you can present those pictures for viewing?

EDIT: Now that I am thinking of it, your post was moved, you may need to re-attach
those images to this post.
