    Hi Can anyone help? All of sudden the SP2 doesn't see the micro sd card?
    I'm using the scandik Ultra 64gb Xc1 and have been doing since I purchased the SP2 approximately 2 weeks ago, Turned it on today and no card?
    I've done all the usual things I could think of
    • Removed replaced the card (and it clicks back in)
    • turned the pc off then back on
    • Windows update
    • Scan for hardware changes
    • Tried the sd card in another 2 machines and it works fine
    • Looked in device manager and it does see it

    But no folder "this PC"
    Sometimes when I turn on the SP2 it is there and works, but more often than not is is not showing in my PC
    Is it worth OR can I update the driver for the sd slot somehow?
    Any ideas at all are much appreciated

    Might have been a defective microsd card.
    Try cleaning up the contact point on the card & plug it in again.

    What format is it?
    Reformat it as NTFS.

    Hi Tried reformat to NTFS ..it was better but still disappeared every now and then, changed the card for a new one .same thing.?
    Reformatted to exFAT and it is better although in 4 days is disappeared again (only once though) ,...............I have to restart to get it back ?
    These card manufacturers recommend exFAT as the best format.
    What to do!

    sorry but it sounds like your card is not mounting right, perhaps something is wrong with the sd card slot?
