Re: formating sd card

Nope.... but you might want to make a run to your local best buy or puter parts store and buy a generic card reader. They are pretty darn cheap and it sounds as if you need one anyhow!

Re: formating sd card

Put your TP into disk drive mode, go to my computer on your PC, find the drive(removable storage) thats your SD card, right click and hit format.

Yeah, you can do it that way. But it can cause corruption or some strange anomolies especially if anything is/was linked to anything in TF3D. Like pictures/music, etc. Always best to either format it with the actual unit it goes in, but in this case, you can't with the TP, or remove it and format it as a stand alone card.

Ok, but if anything was linked to the card it would cause problems either way.
