HI all
I purchased 2 micro sd cards (4gig) complete with adapter but when inserted into my reader it keeps asking for disk.....or to format the card...when i try to format it says cannot format the card. I tried the micro sd card from my daughters phone which is only 1 gig and it reads it. Can anybody tell me why I cant format the cards?

just noticed that my new cards are HC and my daughters card is just micro SD,could this be the reason?

How old is the card reader.

Older car readers will only read SD cards upto 2GB and will not be able to read HCSD cards which are 4GB+ you may need a new card reader.
