MemorySticks Love Reformat

Yeah, every once in a while I've been having problems accesing data in my 2GB MemoryStick; the cellphone does not "find it" or the Windows Explorer, or any file famanger in any OS by the way cannot access some directories in the card.

A while ago I thought I had come up with some techniques to get to read those pesky directories without losing any data, but yesterday my memory card fucked up again, and there's been no other way to solve its problems but to reformat the damn thing.

Forget about those programs that claim to recover or fix MemorySticks; I've tried them all and they are crap, good for nothing but losing more time. The best thing you can do is to backup your whole card frequently before it fails again.
