So glad to see you have solved it ,.......... now I have seen a card corrupted during this conversation between computer and card reader . Perhaps a poor connection at the point where the USB cable plugs in ......... but there is a cure for this corruption ....


I'm missing your logic. It sounds like you're suggesting the problem was between the card reader and the computer, in which case, I'd have the same issue if I used the other slot because the card would go into the same card reader (the other slot in the card reader). Did I misunderstand? Of course, I see your smiley, so maybe you were just trying to be funny.
Since I had a computer problem, I'm inclined to believe the issue wasn't related to the card, the reader, or the USB connection, but somehow within the computer.
BTW, I just tested the card using f3 (f3write and f3read) and it passed without error. I also contacted Lexar, who replied promptly reading to produce an RMA. I'm very impressed.  I canceled that after realizing there was no issue with the card.
