Samsung Captivate :: Damaged Internal SD Card Not Micro?

Jul 21, 2010

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.

Samsung Captivate :: Copying Music Files W/o A Memory Card

Aug 10, 2010

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.

Samsung Epic 4G :: Not Format 32GB SD / Card Damaged ?

Sep 5, 2010

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.

Samsung Captivate :: How To Move Media Files To An SD Card Speed Up Phone?

Aug 27, 2010

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.

Samsung Captivate :: How To Flash Rom Without Losing Everything?

Nov 26, 2010

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.

Samsung Galaxy S :: Kies Connection And Losing SD Card

Aug 26, 2010

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.

Media :: Reformat Damaged SD Card?

Jun 4, 2010

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.

HTC Hero :: Memory Card Damaged

Mar 11, 2010

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.

HTC Eris :: Flashing New ROM - SD Card Damaged

Jul 28, 2010

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?

Motorola CLIQ :: SD Card Damaged - Need To Reformat

Dec 12, 2009

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?

HTC Droid Eris :: Damaged SD Card - DoubleTwist

Dec 18, 2009

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.

Anyone have experience with this? It seems kind of odd.

HTC Droid Eris :: Notification Bar Stated SD Card Damaged

May 31, 2010

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.

HTC EVO 4G :: Firmware Update Didn't Fix SD Card Damaged Error

Jun 30, 2010

I've had the evo since day 1. On the first day, HTC released a firmware update that included a fix for SD card corruption. I updated the firmware, then swapped out the 8gb card with a 16gb sandisk card I purchased at radio shack. It worked great until today. I shut off the phone, then turned it back on several minutes later. Once the phone reboots, I got a SD card damaged message at the top. I turned off the phone, reseated the microsd card, then turned it back on. Unfortunately, no matter how many times I have turned the phone on and off it still states that the SD card is damaged.

I've never rooted the phone, never dropped it, and its been great until today. I've seen this problem before with HTC made windows smart phones and I can't believe they can't get this right. I normally don't get too pissed out these kind of things, but this time I am. I'm on vacation and took lots of photos and I'm worried they're lost. I won't know until I get home. In the mean time, any suggestions? I will be calling HTC at some point today, but I'm sure they will be as much help as the firmware update that was suppose to fix this major issue. Are you having the same issue? What's the real fix?

HTC Desire :: Losing Access To SD Card

May 17, 2010

Sometimes when I turn on the screen there's a notice saying that backing up to SD had failed, so I try to look at the contents of the card and I can't see any of my files. Sometimes I notice it when I try to take a picture and it'll say that it doesn't have the required access. Other times, I've just wanted to access something on the card and noticed it had happened. Now, this sounds like it happens all the time, but it's only a couple of times a week, but quite annoying nonetheless.

The only solution I have found is to turn off the phone, and then turn it back on again. I have tried with the programs SDRemount and SDRescan, but neither have any effect. Is it an issue with the SD card that would go away if I got a new one? I have searched for this topic several times in here, without finding it, but I think something goes wrong in the search process (even if I just search for SD, nothing is found, and I'm quite sure SD has been mentioned a couple of times in here.

HTC Desire :: Corrupt SD Card - Losing Date?

Aug 5, 2010

A few days ago my Desire flashed up a warning that in future I should unmount my SD card correctly to avoid losing date. I hadn't touched it or even connected the phone to the PC.

Two days later and I wake up to find my phone has gone flat overnight and turned off, when I turned it back on it warned me that my SD card is blank and displays a permanent SD card symbol with question mark at the top of the screen.

Apart from my photos/music/video clips etc, what else should be on the card? I've noticed voice navigation doesn't work any more, the turn-by-turn just chimes at me to tell me a junction is coming up, also I've lost all my bookmark screenshots. I'm guessing there is a load of software on there such as HTC Sync?

I was hoping to use one of the free data recovery programs to see if I can recover my stuff...but tried a Sandisk demo one and it said it couldn't find any files to recover.

Only other possibility is I have 'wavesecure' installed, but once I realised you had to pay for it I left it alone. Only the backup facility is available on the demo mode, will it have done this automatically meaning I could pay for the app and be able to restore the data, or do you have to instigate the backup manually?
