I have a 32GB SDHC card which I'm trying copy some music and pictures to. I have windows formatted the card and copied about 7 GB which was very slow after the first couple GB. I then looked at the copied folders and many of their names were corrupted gibberish (all forms of characters).  I ran chkdsk on the SD, and it found many errors and said it corrected them.  I then deleted the FOUND.000 folder; tried copying the files back on the SD card. When, I ran CHKDSK it found another set of bad files. Is the SD card no good or do I need to apply another tool to it? I have tried this with two different adapters and on an XP desktop and Windows 7 laptop.  There are no errors while copying.  Instead of doing a simple copy of a folder I also used FreeFileSync with very similar results.

Having tried it with different adapters and on different computers, it looks like the card I'm sorry to say. But, as a final check before you ditch what is not one of the cheapest SD cards around, try copying anything to a different card and see if those files are readable.


If they are - it's almost certainly the card. If they too are gibberish, then you may be doing something wrong, although I can't think what !  I use SD cards all the time for photography, admittedly this is data going from the card to the computer, but on a few occasions I have transferred data the other way. I just use Windows Explorer and 'drag and drop' for SD cards, memory sticks and portable HDs.
