Files end up in the LOST.DIR on my microSD 32gb cardSupport

    I just got my Galaxy S 4G and I bought a 32gb microSD card off of ebay. Well, I connect the phone to my PC via USB and transfer a bunch of folders with mp3's to my phone. In windows (XP SP3) it seemed like the folders/files copied fine, but when try to view them in the file manager, they are not there! I checked the SD card in the settings, and sure enough, it reports the same amount of space that has been used on the card that the folders/files I copied over used. I then go to the LOST.DIR folder on my card and it lists a bunch of numbered files.

    what is the reason for this? Should I try copying folders/files to my microSD card through a card reader or...?

    Make sure your XP is able to read/write into SDHC instead of SD only.

    Yes my PC can read SDHC (SDHC readability isn't limited to the OS, but rather the card reader itself) cards. My card is corrupt, as I tested it with H2testw v1.4 (free program and works really good). Here's the report:
