When I boot up my phone, I'm getting this message: "Damaged Internal SD Card." Not a micro SD card. It's saying my internal SD card is damaged. Am I screwed? Do I need to return this thing? Is there a way to format the internal SD card on this thing? I found the "Format Card" option in settings. It's working fine, although the fact that this came up in the first place is very troublesome. Some further information: I did the GPS thing where you dial *#*# and some number, then rebooted my phone. My internal card was fine until I rebooted. That was the first time I got that message of a damaged internal sd card.
So I plugged my new Captivate into my PC (Windows 7 64-bit) and the Captivate says it's connected, but the PC shows no signs of it being connected. I called SAmsung support, and from what I could understand of what the "tech" told me, this is a bug, and there's no way for a PC to recognize the Captivate unless there's a memory card installed. is this correct? Once a 16GB memory card is installed, do you have 64-GB of storage space you can use for music, etc?
This seems like a mammoth problem - do they have any timeframe for a fix for this? Or is the "tech" incorrect? I can't believe I just bought a brand new "Smartphone" to replace my old mobile phone and MP3 player, and I can't copy files to it. Help!
Should Samsung Kies be selected as the USB setting? That's the default.
Looking to speed up my Samsung Captivate a bit. Seems like every since I loaded it up with some music and movies that it is slower. Any truth in that? Considering getting an SD card to hopefully help with that but not sure if it is just my imagination. Anything else for performance tweaking would be great too.
I finally got around transferring my 32Gig card out of my Evo and into the Epic. After I put it in I decided to clean it and reformat it in the Epic. Epic starts the format then comes up with a message "card damaged cant format". I put the same card in the Evo and it formatted just fine and then worked in the Epic. Then I tried to format it again in the Epic and again I get the card damaged pop up. Again it reformatted just fine in the Evo. Any ideas anyone else get this message? Just to add I tried to format a smaller card in the Epic and it was able to format that fine. Once the 32gig card is formatted in the Evo it will work fine in the Epic.
My Captivate was given to my as a company phone, but I have been told that they don't care what I do with it outside of 1 app, Good for Enterprise. (For those who don't know, this is an app that allows secure access to my company email and calendar. It requires the server admen to send me an invite with a PIN to register my device on the system before I can completely load it. I have already rooted the phone, but I would like to flash my ROM to get Froyo and maybe some additional features. Is there a way to flash my ROM without losing my apps? I know Google will re download everything to my phone, but I think this would force me to completely re-setup my Good for Enterprise which I don't want to do.
I have a utility at the top called Battery Indicator reporting the percentage of battery power remaining. I did a test where I would randomly click pages on this site and wait a few seconds on each page, over 3G, and concluded I was losing 1% every 2 minutes. Is this normal or is it comparable to your experience?
Kies is complete crap. In fact, I wish I'd stuck with my iphone now because the Galaxy is not great. Heres the latest. If I set USB connection to Ask then when I connect to PC, it asks me. I select Samsung Kies. For some reason I then get a message in the status bar saying USB disabled. Run Kies connects OK. But heres the best bit, on my phone if I go into SD card and phone storage it says both internal and external SD card are not available. Disconnect no difference. Only way to get them back is to reboot the phone. Good news is that at least it works in mass storage mode.
Tonight my phone quit recognizing my sd card and gave me a "sd card damaged" message. It is a 8gb sandisk. I reformatted it but haven't put anything else on the card yet. I've had the card in the phone since release day with no trouble until tonight.
I have my SD card full of music, well not full, around 3gbs worth synced with Silling media sync (itunes playlist syncer) i plug it into my car stereo via USB the stereo is the Alpine X305 which plays mp3 etc from USB drive. The phone works at first, plays the music etc all day long, but when i come to get out of the car and disconnect the USB from the phone, the desire comes up with: Preparing SD card then SD card damaged, you will need to format the SD card. I tried this again with a freshly formatted SD card and it does the same every time the phone is unplugged
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'm able to get into the recovery mode but I have no Roms or anything to upload. I had a SD card damaged and reformatted it and lost everything. I do have a back up SD files on my computer but I just don't know how to load it, since my laptop is not reading the USB connection.
I'm the owner of a HTC Hero for three days and I'm already thinking the darn thing isn't worth a penny. I bought it together with a 16gb Sandisk sdhc class 2 card and it keeps damaging the filesystem every day. It starts with the native media player not working correctly (Sorry the player cannot play this audio file), although it could play it like 10 minutes ago, then going on to not even recognizing the sd card anymore (showing Total & Available Space as 00). Unmounting the sd card and then removing & inserting it again then brings up a message that my sd card is damaged and that I should format it, however clicking format doesn't do anything.
The best part about this is that neither of the product reviews I've read showed this issue, although there are so many frustrated android users that keep telling the same story of not-working sd cards. I wonder why neither google nor HTC offer a patch / workaround. It's just not possible that no one noticed this problem during the development process. Is there anyone who has the same issues or can offer some advice? If I can't get this fixed in some days then I'm returning the phone and switch to something that will really work.
So I am using SuaveSmush as my current ROM, but I wanted to try a Froyo ROM out. I am currently using A2SD. When I flash the new ROM, it says that the card is damaged or not recognized and when I click on it, it wants me to reformat it. If the ROM (Froyo) supports A2SD, shouldn't I be able to use it right away, or do I have to revert back to an earlier state with the SD card and then repartition it when on Froyo?
I used Notpod to transfer music into my Galaxy S2 in the SD Card file but after I disconnected there was a notification saying "Media Scanner Running" And after it finished scanning it gave me a notification that the SD Card have been damaged, try reformatting. I formatted the SD card and proceed to redo the whole thing again only to get the same messaged. I've restarted my phone, I've took the SD card out and put it back in but nothing seems to work.
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?
I flashed ChevyNo1's SS 4.8 and the Chevy 1.25Ghz Lv kernel and now Im getting a "SD Card Damaged" notification. I rebooted to the same ROM and Kernel, and I recieved the same message. I just Rebooted to Clockwork in order to flash to a nandroid backup that I had, but there were no backups there..... and when I went to choose a zip file and there werent any there... what should I do??
i put this here cause i am rooted and just performed petes bugless beast v.5 and it tells me that my sd card is damaged, i have done 2 battery pulls and pulled the sd card one time and put it back? i can mount the sd card and pull it up? i figure i may have to just pull the stuff off it, format it and put it back, will that fix it?
I've been using DoubleTwist to sync music between my Eris and my MacBook Pro without any problems for the last few weeks. The last two times I've synced, however (yesterday and today), that has changed. After syncing, I go through the usual disconnecting procedure (unmount from computer, unmount from phone, remove cord, etc)... except it tells me that my SD card is damaged, and won't read anything. So, I have to format the thing, and then re-load everything back on. SD card has had NO other issues. I can load music (or pictures, or contacts, or anything else) onto the SD card either from Windows, or just using drag-and-drop in the Mac OS, without any 'damaged SD card' issues.
Anybody else have this problem? I've noticed it seemed to coincide with Doubletwist telling me, for the first time, that I needed to "update" purchased iTunes songs or they wouldn't play... could be a red herring, but odd that after my machine gave me that warning for the first time, my SD card needed to be wiped.
I've had an LG Vortex for probably about two years now. It's always worked fine up until about six months ago. It started saying it was full, so I'd delete a picture here and there but eventually it just stopped loading my picture gallery it was so full, and my sd card just stopped working completely. It said I needed to format it, so I took all of the pictures and put them on my computer and tried to format it, but It said it was damaged. Also, previously I didn't know that you had to mount and unmount it when taking it out so I don't know if that had anything to do with it. So anyway, I buy a new SD card, try to mount it. It says it's damaged. A little while later, I buy another card figuring it might just be that card was messed up. STILL SAYS IT'S A DAMAGED CARD. These are two brand new cards I tried, so I know it's something to do with my phone, but I don't understand.
I am getting error on android mobile damaged sd card... i hv 32 gb sandisk class 10... see image for error .. its not getting formatted in mobile or pc.. not getting detected in PC scan for error not working... card not showing any size..
I just woke my phone after a phone call and now it says that the sd card is damaged and I need to reformat everything!!! I have over 200 pictures of my newborn son on here that I can't loose. I even tried to hook the phone up to the computer and nothing even shows up.
I had turned off the Eris and when I turned it back on, I get a little icon with a question mark and in Notifications it says "The SD card is damaged. You may have to reformat." The first time I did reformat (after, as I thought, saving everything I wanted to my PC - turns out I didn't save photos ). This time, I'm wondering if it's really damaged or not. Anyone have experience with this? It seems kind of odd.
Yesterday afternoon, the notification bar stated my SD card was damaged. This was out of the clear blue, no errors?nothing missing from the widgets. I tried using the file manager on the phone and it would open some folders, but not all of them. I popped the card out and inserted into the adapter card to read on my laptop. Windows 7 said that it was not responding after trying to read the card 3 times. On the fourth time I was able to right click and pull up the properties and tools. I performed a scanerror check. It found and fixed the 3 problems. The .data, download and Camera folders were corrupted.
What does that mean?.Well, the download folder included images I had downloaded and uploaded to my phone. So I just had to gather the images again. The Camera folder is a mystery. Images were stored in another folder (DCIM)?this had nothing in it and was added after the OTA. The biggest pain was the third folder; the .data file contained all the animation for Beautiful Widgets. I had to uninstall & reinstall BW home?along with all the animation which was a separate download once you add the BW Home to your screen. BW installed fine, however the animation won?t download?it sits @ 0/100%. I have even tried turning on the Wi-Fi with no successful of a download. With all the other quirks since the OTA, I may just keep BW uninstalled. I don?t use any of the other widgets?.and now with full screen weather animation?I may not go back.
i have had this happen a few times. i lose my data on my card which pisses me off. i can only assume it might be from when i swap batteries during the day? i never had this happen on other devices when swapping batteries with an sd card in the phone
