Hi all.

Not having a WM or Android device around, and wanting to create a gold card for my Mozart, I managed to put together a bit of software using some resources from the web and made an application that appears to do just this.

You basically just insert your SD card into the laptop card reader, run the app as admin, and click Read CID.

Note: IT MUST BE A LAPTOP CARD READER THAT IS NOT VIA A USB ROOT DEVICE - USB CARD READERS ARE NO GOOD

[B]Requirements:
Well, at this stage just give it a go on as many laptops as you can find until it works, and post back what did and didn't work for you.

It seems about a 40% chance it will work, so try on a couple if it doesnt at first.

It will return it pre-reversed and ready for the Gold Card website - and the number works.

I have already successfully created a gold card using the number provided by the tool!

Good Luck!

Hi guys,

Some other testers have reported it does not work on 32bit windows.

If you have a laptop with x64, post again and I will pm you the link.

Cheers

Sorry for the delay all, I was hoping to have permission from the author of the code I modified, but he has'nt replied for over a week.

So instead, I placed a link to the source of the code (a freely viewable blog) on the application itself.

Basically this app extends the work he did by fixing a couple of little issues with his code, and modifying it to return the number needed for the goldcard website.

Let me know how it goes guys!

@OTech, no good here, Win7pro, 64 bit, Toshiba laptop with built in SD card reader. Used a 512 MB micro SD in a regular sd adapter, "no sd card found on a compatible device"
