2nd Hand SDHC Memory Card Issue


Well-known Member
Hi All

Just taken receipt of 2 x 4GB used SDHC Memory cards for my D90. The PC reads both as having virtually no memory left on the cards - around 20MB free of 3.78GB. Both cards have two folder of '0' MB - one DCIM and one Misc. File system is FAT32 as are my other cards. What is the problem here ?

Please can you advise ?

It sounds as though the files that were on the disks have been deleted using a mac. On mac, unless the files are removed from the recycling bin too, they are still allocated on the disk..

Have you tried reformatting in camera?


I agree - first reformat - I'd try on a PC first as you will have easy access to disk checking facilities if needed
