For me the resolution was to go to Windows Device Manager, click on SD-Card, Properties, Policies and change the settings (quickly remove).
Now I could use PhoenixCard
This helped for me.
Hope you get it work, sorry for my english

Perfect solution !! Just tried it, changing Quick removal to Best Performance on the SD Card reader properties, and that's just magic, not a single error since that !

There's lot of love to share with you all guys ^^

Phoenixcard has damaged 2 sd cards for me. The format fails then they are hard to mount. After they mount they are recognized as being 2 tb. Gparted cant fix it. Any suggestions?

Will do. Thanks. I'll report back tomorrow.


That was a no go. I saw some suggestions of putting the card in my android phone and formatting it. Thst actually fixed it.

Edit 2: Scratch that the card gets 29GB partition formatted on it but it still has 2TB unallocated. The card still whacks out. HP utility is a no go also. I give up .

I had lots of problems installing Android on a 8GB class 4 Kingston card (probably not genuine). Tried everything mentioned above with the only result that it sometimes took a bit longer for the error to appear. Then I tried a 4GB class4 noname card (definitely a cheap Chinese card) and everything worked like a charm!

So it when you have problems with Phoenixcard and the above solutions don't work for you, try a different brand card, it might help!

@foltz61: Try phoenixcard, write mode "product", format to normal. This should remove all weird partition schemes. Second possibility: search for an old version of the sdcard formatter program (v3 or less) and select full format with erase.

In addition, you can use minitool partition wizard to remove any partition on the sdcard, then create a new one taking all the available space. It helped me to cleanup badly burned sdcard in the past, when PhoenixCard was capricious.

Prefer Class 10 to Class 4, which are too slow for a good experience, especially when running Android on it.

just had problems writing this morning. simple solution: the write protection of the sd was enabled (this mechanical switch - maybe while inserting into the card reader).
anyway. phoenix won't recognize it. will simply quit with burnfail.

Perhaps you do need a different card reader/writer, but that remains to be seen.
Double-check your c ...

As much as I tried, I have not been able to boot android 4.2.2 on my SmartTV, I've used both as phoenixcard SDFormatter in different pc with windows; I downloaded several times both programs as well as the android img; I checked the MD5 and entirely correct. I followed these instructions one by one and nothing happens. I have no errors SDFormatter or Phoenixcard

The strange thing is that when I connect the unit microsd ubuntu, I have 3 partitions, two with files, and the third unit without any type of file.

When analyzing the microsd unit gparted, it appears that there is only one unit without assignment.

My microsd card is 8GB Class 10, and I have used several usb adapters.

I appreciate any help

As my experience Gparted don't see anything, it's normal.
But I can see all the 7 partitions in Kubuntu, using Dolphin. I can also read the files, or add/remove some files in root.
You could try to install it (but a lot of QT dependances in Ubuntu)
