This is happening on HTC Desire. perfectly OK 32GB disk ( been running on my old smatphone for 15 months) and put in Desire and it showed only 16GB. Reformatted disk and still only 16GB. according to HTC docs, the Desire supports 32GB
I just bought a SanDisk 32gb microSDHC card to replace the 16gb which came with my Droid-X. I have explored it some using the Astro free file browser found in the Android Market. It seems that the filesystem is some form of Linux/Unix (EXT/EXT2/EXT3).
How can I copy everything from the existing 16gb card to the new 32gb card using a Windows pc?
It's one thing to read/write from/to the card from a Windows PC while the card is still in the Droid. It's another thing to read/write from/to it while the card is mounted in a reader on the Windows PC. I am concerned about screwing up file permissions, privileges, the structure and getting all hidden files.
I have the HTC EVO 4G with a 16GB memory card inserted. I am almost out of space with my audio books etc so I was thinking of upgrading to a 32GB memory card. What is the best way to use the 32GB card with all the content currently on the 16GB card. Would using my CPU to hold the 16GB's data then copying to the 32GB card work?
I'm upgrading from my Droid 1 to the Droid X tomorrow and would like to start my use of the DX with it's new 32gb card in place of my old 16gb card from my Droid 1 but need to know if there's anything required to copy from my droid 1 16gb card to my new DX 32 gb card that would be required or helpful in the DX use.I will obviously transfer music/vids/pics but are there any essential files, apps, etc. that are needed.Or is it a good idea to use my paid MyBackupPro to copy the old Droid 1 apps/data for use in the DX larger memory card or is this not copatible to perform between the 2 devices?
I don't really understand the difference, except one is cheaper than the other. I assume the Desire takes both, but does it really matter. I know my laptop can read both, but my desktop can't read the sdhc ones, i guess it's too old!
I have bought 16gb card Copied all old files turned on my phone and all my mp3s disappeared.Weird but ok I have plugged it on again copied again and again files are not there? Took off the card connected to PC via card reader formatted it copied again plugged off plugged in files on the card plugged in to the desire turned on the phone files gone after couple more attempts I have only 2 folders with mp3s but rest is empty.I dont know what is going on.
I have recieved from China, via ebay, a 32gb sd card. It is actually 31.7gb according to my laptop. when i put it in my desire, it will not see it, or just tells me that the sd card needs formatting, then won't format it. Is this because the card is too slow,or is it an OS problem,that will be resolved when Froyo is released?
What can I do if 16gb micro sdhc class 10 cannot be formatted? I just recently bought this, then during pasting data on it, i think it got disconnected. so now it won't work and can't be formatted. I can return it to the seller but I'm outside of US so I'm leaving this as my last option.
I finally got my 32gb from play.com through the post. Now after reading again froyo saves the app on the sd card but saves the extra user data etc I think on internal memory so what's the point in that? Now I'm just thinking of going all the way once and for all. At the moment I am running the standard 4gb card on my unbranded o2 with the devillian rom, but I found this rom freezes sometimes abit, like windows, you click on something it freezes then a couple seconds later comes back to life plus the flash player and browser seems to be worse than stock. So I'm moving away from this one. Open for recommendations, but I'm leaning towards the one lekky is using (defrost?) as I think that is known to be well.Instead of doing it myself and going awol searching on the interwebs, jumping on the ever stressful rooting/rom merry go round and crawling into a fetal position rocking back and forth when things don't go to plan I thought I should post on here first and listen to your recommendations.
I have installed my new 32gb card into my desire and transferred my music collection (about 20gb) across via my pc but when I try to play them not all are available. They appear to be on the card as when I check the contents of the card on the pc in explorer they are all there and if I check the folders using the phone again they are showing on the card.
But when I go to select a song to play from the stock player there are only 100 songs to choose from which is very strange as there should be over 2000 easily. Interestingly when I switched the phone off and back on again I had about 700 to choose from which is still not right. Do I need to do anything with the vcard before installing (for example I didn't format it)? For info I needed to set up a new folder called MP3 on the new card when I installed it and dragged them into this folder so presume that was correct?
I Just purchased one of these cheap from Hong Kong (�20) - transferring files from the computer has been deadly slow compared to the Kingston 4gb ones I have (basically unuseably slow). Is this to do with the size of the card or the make an also will this affect performance of the phone?
I was at Benihanas last night and my Nesus One was acting a little sketchy. Glitching while going in and out of the camera/camcorder. Since I had quite a bit of up time I rebooted and got the "SD card damaged you may have to re format it" error. I have a 16g Sandisk micro sdhc class 2. I bought the chip separately at office depot 8 months ago and spent $100 bucks on the thing because I read all over the forums about how people were having issues with the cheap ebay chips. This happened once before on my mytouch with the same chip. After I was threw crying in my cool aid I just formated the card and moved all the music/movies back over from my laptop. No biggie.
This time, my computer isn't even registering the card when I plug it in at all. After pulling up the notification and formating the card it will check for errors for what seems like an unusually long period of time it pops back up with the damaged sd card notification again. I have formated over and over, pulled the battery and removed the card and rebooted several times and even checked for updates for my laptop and rebooted it as well and just cannot for the life of me get this card unlocked. Here I am on vacation with my bran new $500 phone with a custom $100 chip in it and cannot even take an effing picture. So of course my Iphone and Blackberry fanboy friends are having a field day on me.
I have a EVO 4G from Sprint, and I've been downloading apps like a madman. My Advanced Task Killer has gone from like 1 or 2 apps killed to anywhere from 9-30+ killed now. I feel that I have bloated my phone even though I have uninstalled all the apps I haven't needed/been using.
My question is the Android Linux-based OS get bloated like Windows where info just keeps piling up until it just starts glitching?
If I have to do a reset, I would rather do it now than later...
Please advise me on the best way to go about this. I have a LOT of apps... also, what is the best auto app killer? I have Advanced Task Manger as well that does it like every 30 minutes or an hour or so.
Last night as I was playing on my phone as I always do, out of nowhere I received a notification that my SD card was damaged and I may have to reformat it. (That really upset me as I had just recorded some video of my son earlier in the day). I had always used the 8gb card that I bought with the phone from T-Mobile and have never had any issues. Here's what I tried to remedy the situation, without having to reformat the card.
1. Unmount the card (isn't even showing up as an option now). 2. Power cycled the phone. 3. Powered off the phone, removed the battery and SD card, replaced both and powered back on. 4. Left the phone powered off all night. 5. Called technical support and they were unable to help me.
Now, I have a picture frame on my home screen with a picture of my son in it. It still pulls the picture, but if I try to view my Picture Gallery, there is nothing in it. (So if I am using the android picture frame widget, did it copy that picture to the actual phone?). I do have a card reader, usb cable, etc., but did not yet want to try and see if I could see the files on my PC until I could find out if anyone had any other ideas?
Has anyone experienced an corrupted SD card with their Droid? I was listening to a podcast through Listen while navigating home and the battery was getting low. But, I was nearly home so I figured it would make it. Well, it didn't. When I plugged it in it powered up and I got an error about a corrupt SD card needing a format. I removed and re-seated the card (after shutting down the phone, natch) but that didn't help. I popped it into a PC to try to do a scandisk, but the PC couldn't read it either.
I did indeed format the card. All is well so far, but it's disconcerting that this would happen after only a few days.
I've got an HTC Inspire 4G (similar to the Desire HD). I've been rooted and S-OFF since January when I switched to CM7. That was fantastic until late May. Phone started to freeze randomly. I decided to try flashing new ROM and am now using a JB ROM called Jellytime.
1. Phone freezes randomly. Removing the battery is the only way to shut it off. The time to freeze seems to get shorter and shorter eventually freezing during the boot animation. I can go in and wipe data/factory reset, wipe cache, and wipe dalvik (I'm using CWM Recovery v18.104.22.168) and flash the rom and get a little use again. But most of that time is spent signing back in with google accounts and redownloading apps.
2. I can't flash other ROMs. I've tried flashing back to CM7 or to Android Revolution which is a stock-ish ROM with no luck. With CM7 I'd get an error in recovery a little while after it started that I don't remember off the top of my head. Android Revolution uses a different revoery or flashing tool (I think that's what AROMA is) When flashing that ROM, things go well until I get the following error at which point my choice is to reboot.
Code: assert failed:write_raw_image("/tmp/boot.img","boot") Once I reboot I am back in Jellytime.
3. Can't mount /cache CWM Recovery will throw up some can't mount and can't open /cache errors once I "Wipe Data/Factory reset" I believe the two places it tries are /cache/recovery/log and /cache/recovery/last_log
4. Can't format System I've tried to format the /system or /data partitions using Recovery only to have an "Error: Can't format /system" returned.
Have I got a corrupt partition? My eMMC chip is fine as best I can tell. I ran 'dmesg | grep mmc0' and got the following back.
This link shows similar output for a good chip. I can't find the page now that had the messages indicating a bad chip. (browser history far too full of pages that led nowhere)
So...Have I got a corrupt partition(s)? Is there something else I should check? Is there a way to test partitions to find errors? e2fsck? How can I reformat things (from adb is fine with some guidance) if this is my issue and if that is the fix?
OK so i updated to the newest 1.6 from BH_man's release. When everything looked good i tried gallery, but it kept Facing on me. When i looked around and found out that i had to make a new folder called SD on the card. So after doing that it would stay at the Loading screen. I could Back button out of it but then it would say i have no pictures. Then for some reason i decided to reformat the card. Bad move. After i went to setting >unmount> then format, i cant get it to mount the card again! I dunno what to do
One of the things I really like about the Incredible's browser is the fact that when you zoom in on text, it will reformat it so that you don't have to scroll from side to side to read everything, it makes it all in one column and does a very good job. Does the X's browser do this as well?
As of yesterday i cannot sync to gmail AT ALL here's how (i think) this whole affair started
My phone was reacting SLOW one day a couple weeks ago, so i popped the battery
well, the ph must have been in the middle of writing/reading to the ext mem card because when it came back up there was an icon in the notification bar indicating the card was damaged and needed to be reformatted
So, eventually i got around to formatting it but not long after, i got another icon in the notification area indicating i was getting low on storage space now, my email has stopped syncing i've got two gmail accts - and neither of them are working since yesterday around noon
This is a problem people!
I've tried to do a forced sync - i've tried soft resets
I've cleared the gmail storage cache - all i see is "your email will appear shortly"
Well... we're past "shortly" now and i'm getting concerned - thus, the post to phandroid here
