Default Nook Color won't recognize N2A card

I had to replace the battery in my Nook Color and now when I boot the NC , it won't recognize the N2A card. I put another SD card into the NC to test and it recognized it just fine. I have tried a couple supposed fixes from N2A, neither of which worked. One was using SD Formatter. Downloaded it and the NC won't open a .zip file so I can't launch it. Any ideas anyone?

How does replacing the battery break the sdcard? Who did the replacement, B&N? Did they also update your software at the same time? I think there's more to this story than you're telling.

The only SD formatter that I'm aware of runs on your computer and completely wipes the sdcard, which I doubt will help you much since it would no longer be bootable.

Default N2A cont...

They sent me instructions for using the SD Formatter and then writing the image to the card. The card itself is not broken as far as I can tell and I did not do anything to it that should have corrupted it (I changed out the battery myself....had a problem seating one of the connectors so had a professional do that.....I doubt he did anything more than boot the NC to make sure it had power. So you're saying that it would be the card itself and not the files on it? Sorry, I'm obviously not technical.

The sd formatter needs to be unzipped on your pc with the sdcard attached to the pc, preferably with a usb adapter. There's no need to unzip it on the NC. The unzipped file would be run on your pc. I assume it would be an image and a program that flashes that image to the sdcard.

Since your NC see's other cards, I would assume the problem is the N2A card itself. If you plug the card into your computer, can you see files on it?

Default Thanks for suggestion

It appears that there is nothing at all on the card, or at least nothing that I can see. I tested a different card in the adapter and it listed the files. The N2A card didn't even show up as a directory in Windows(7). Do I follow the reformatting instructions before I continue? I suppose I can't do much more damage to the card.

Reformat the card or replace it with a new (Sandisk class 4) card.

How long did you use the card? After about a year of moderate to heavy use and it's replacement time.

Default Warranty....hopefully.

It got pretty light use. I went back to my records and I bought it in 4/2012 so it should still be under warranty. There is no way to reformat it. Hopefully they will replace it (I bought the card from them; did not do the download).

Thanks
