hello, i am using a micro sd card that has some videos on it that i would really like to see, but i cant open the files on the card. i have a usb card reader, and when i plug in the card reader it shows up. when i click it it tells me to insert disk. so i put the micro sd card in and then i try again. this time it takes about five minutes, and at the top where the file path is there is a green loading bar. when it finishes loading it just tell me to "insert disk" again. when i close the pop up that tell me to insert disk my card reader disapears. and i have to unplug it and plug t back into my computer. what is happening. PLEASE HELP

Hello, and Welcome

What device did the SD card come from? You may have better luck using a live linux distro like puppy linux to pull the files.

If you formatted it in Windows the files should should copy without a problem. Possibly the USB card reader has the problem. Have you tried reading the SD card on another computer?

 

As I posted previously, you can boot a live linux iso and see if the files can be pulled off. Here is a guide using Puppy linux 5.2.8. You would be pulling them from your USB flash drive to your hard disk. When you attach the card reader with the SD card, you will see a USB icon appear on the Puppy desktop. Click once on the icon. A file manager window should open showing your video files.

You do not install puppy linux. It runs from RAM and the CD disk. It does not touch the hard drive. The only time the hard drive is touched is when you copy from the SD card to the hard drive. You do not even need to do that. Just boot the puppy linux disk, attach your SD card reader with SD card and see if you can see your videos.

 

Edit: You can burn a CD/DVD in Windows 7 by right clicking the puppy iso and selecting Burn Disk Image.

It sounds like there is file corruption on the SD card. You formatted the card on a Windows computer, correct?

I think it is the different OS"s phone/windows, that or it did not survive the copters vibration. 


If you don't stand for the flag then you will fall for anything!
