I'm having a major problem getting my chromebook to read my sd card. This morning it crashed when I tried to transfer a video file, and when I reinserted it, it created a ton of new folders with random names and dates that led to nothing. So I tried to format it afterwards and the chromebook just stopped reading it all together (it wouldn't even show up in my files). So then I did a power clean of my chromebook in the hopes that it would help, and now I'm getting notifications from the files tab that the external storage device couldn't be recognized and to format it. However when I select the option to format it, nothing happens at all. Is there anything I can do to fix this?

If you have another laptop/PC besides the chromebook, you could try and format it in that device. If the laptop/PC doesn't have a card slot. you can get USB holders.
I own two

The back lifts up and I slide the card into the holder and plug it into a USB port on a device.


Scroll down to formatting in Windows
