Re: memory on media

That's probably some data for the internal file structure of the SD card. For example indexes for faster searching, metadata of folder structure.

You can't actually do anything about this.

thank you, what to do about it...         ?How do i access it?

Surely a 1.8 Gb  card should not have 1.3 Gb unaccessible data???

Re: memory on media

Okay that is a lot of data lost. You probably should put the memory card in a computer to fix the problem. Worst case scenario, you just reformat the card. That should definitely solve the problem. But then you'll loose all your data on the drive.
