SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:

• On a Windows Vista-based computer, you insert a Secure Digital (SD) card into a card reader that is connected to the computer.
• You use the error-checking tool in Windows Vista to scan the SD card for errors.
• You have the Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors option selected in the error-checking tool.

However, when the scan is complete, you receive a message that resembles the following:

Some problems were found and fixed.

You do not experience this problem if you use the SD card to perform another action before you use the error-checking tool to scan for errors.

CAUSE

This problem occurs if the SD card driver incorrectly reports the size of the SD card. Specifically, the card driver may not report all the sectors of the SD card. In this scenario, the sectors of the SD card that are not reported by the card driver are processed by the error-checking tool as bad sectors.
