Anyone know anything about SD Cards?

I have a 1 gig PNY SD Card that I bought a little after they first introduced the 1 gig cards. It has worked in my camera and my XPS laptop reader up until two days ago. The camera is giving me a memory card error message, and the computer takes a while to recognize that it is an SD Card when inserted into the reader, then it gives me a "This disk must be formatted before windows can use it." So I try to format it and it gives me an error message stating that Windows cannot format the disk. Am I screwed? I mean, I would want a bigger one anyway, but it sucks that it worked before and now it doesn't.

I talked to PNY's tech support department, but they're retarded.

It's probably screwed. SD cards weren't really that stable and I heard of whole batches that would only last 10-20 full data saves before frying.

Good luck, but I hope you didn't have really valuable information on there.

You can get 2 gig SD cards all day long for $8.00 shipped.

Throw it in the gutter, and go buy another.
