For Guys who have issues with SD Cards (Formatting,Mounting,Errors,Corruption or even Death of Card) :

A full format (uncheck quick format)running HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool is recommended.

Moreover,never ever use SD card Adapters for formatting.Always USB card readers as they are more efficient.

Generic operating system formatters don’t provide the optimum performance.And,sometimes,can result into SD card death and less picture-saving space.

Full format once in awhile is recommended to prevent possible corrupt files, lengthen the life of the card and achieve the most available space possible.

This tool is compatible with Windows XP and vista however Windows 7 users can run this tool in Compatibility mode for Windows 7 by going through :

Properties>Compatibility>Compatibility mode>Check(Run this program in compatibility mode for)>Select Windows 7 from dropdown menu>Apply>OK

Yep,a full format(uncheck quick format) using this tool should solve your problem.I was facing the same issue with one of my cards.
Don't used SD card Adapter for formatting,use a USB card reader.Hope it will get your card back in action.

You can also run surface test using MiniTool Partition Wizard to check any read error in your SD card's memory blocks.
(Right click on your card>surface test)
Good luck

Sorry,I didn't get you.
SD adapter is used to make your micro SD usable on normal SD slot devices.It is not any type of memory.
If you are reffering to a dead micro SD card,a full format (uncheck quick format) using this tool might fix your problem.
Always use USB card readers for the formatting process.

I don't want to be a smart-ass here but seriously... Initially I thought you'd mean a card reader with "SD adapter"... if you're speaking about micro sd adapters: nothing wrong to use those as it's just a kind of "connector extension" - the only thing that might go wrong is that the slot has a mechanical problem. That usually would end up in getting nothing formatted
Anyway thx for the hint with the application - could become useful some time

What is the size of your SD card ?Probably,it's running out of space.
Format your card from within the phone settings first(Settings > Storage).
You will need this tool if that doesn't help.

LOL,this tool can't fix your dead adapter.You need a new adapter.

Yeah,of course,you can transfer files using adapters but USB card reader is recommended for the formatting process.

This tool was created specifically for HP USB devices so only a USB SD card reader can be used as interface device.

The most amazing thing about this tool is ,it does a very deep cleansing.While other formatting tools take 3-4 mints to format an 8GB SD card,this tool takes 4-5 hours to ensure most efficient formatting.I have used and verified this tool personally.Using generic formatting utilities don’t provide optimal performance for your SD cards.

I just thought it might be good to list a tip that might help others with their SD card issues.
