SD card corrupt

Wed Jan 03, 2018 5:01 pm

I loaded a raspberry image and everything worked perfectly. Then the next day I come back and it is off? But I restart it and nothing happens so I decided to format the sd card with a new os and windows will not let me do anything. I have tried cmd and regedit. and NOTHING..... I dont care about the data on the card I was just testing out some new gear. I just want to be able to use this sd card again. Can anyone help me? Thanks!

Just reimage the card with etcher, as you presumably did originally. You don't need to reformat, etcher will overwrite everything on the card.

Please confirm that you are trying to use Etcher to write an image to a 32 Gbyte card and Etcher says not enough space.

yes i am

In that case see if SD Card Formatter recognises as a 32GB Card:

If not recognised then boot your x86 machine with a Linux LiveDVD and use gparted ;)

I used that and some youtube videos to guide me. The same problem still exists such as it only shows the 30 mb when it should be 32 gb. Even creating a new partition doesn't work because there is not enough space.

Do you have a digital camera that takes SD cards and try it out in one of them to see if it basically still working and not broken?

Use gparted to delete ALL the existing partitions. Then use it to make a single partition that uses the whole 32 Gbyte.
