(I tried formatting with android phones, SD card formatter, put it in android phone and unmount properly, still nothing)
I have spent now about 3 nights trying to figure out different methods but nothing
Please someone help me out...
Unfortunately you will not be able to format without the sdcard
1. Try accessing the sdcard via astro filemanager
2. You say you formatted with android phones which means your sd card gets detected with android phones and its not at fault.
3. In that case do a factory reset of the acer iconia a500 and try again, you will lose all data but the sd card should then work
4. If it still doesnt work that means there is a problem with your sd card slot, contact the service center, acer service is usally good and if its less than a year old they will get it done for free.
Hope I helped
