Hi

So i screwed up my CF card (Transcend 4Gb 133x) and the PC would recognize it.
I tried countless recovery programs from Transcend, Kingston, a bunch of third party, freeware and demos.
Nothing worked.

- I couldn't open it
- I couldn't format it
- WinUAE couldn't use it
- The amiga didn't see it
- Diskpart was useless

It was for all sense and purposes, dead.

The i found one thing that DID work.


Windows Disk Management (Win 7 is what i used)

Start -> Run -> diskmgmt.msc

Then it allowed me to format it and Voilà!
It was brought back to life with just a press of a few (right) buttons.



I hope this can help someone like it helped me.

Cheers!

Glad you solved it, but why so many threads for the same issue? Surely you should have posted everything in the same thread?

Yes, i first posted my problems in a very old thread and wasn't sure if that was ok.
then i found the solution (for me) so i thought that deserved an easy to search thread for future reference.
Finally i still need help and still wasn't sure that the old-old thread was ok.

Ah i'm new, sorry for any confusion and forum wrong doings!
