So a while back I was transferring some files between my computer (Win7) and my phone and the phone froze; against everything I know about usb storage devices I disconnected the phone from the computer (don't ask why, I know I f'd up), restarted the phone and all worked ok... except, since then, every time I connect the phone to the computer I get this message about the internal sd card:
Im on Galaxo 126.96.36.199 and have been facing this strange problem since a couple of days. Whenever I mount my internal 8 GB memory and try to copy files into it, the internal memory card automatically un-mounts by itself after a couple of seconds interrupting the file transfer.
This happens almost all the time.
I don't have any such issues with the external SD card.
Should reformatting the internal memory help? Also, If I reformat the internal memory...I dont think the OS should be affected. I suppose the internal memory is just like a movable drive...with no OS files on it.
I was trying to install the latest Froyo update on my new galaxy i9000 and ran into problems. The update was JP3. First the phone kept on flashing i.e. screen off and on. and then i had to reboot the phone and same problem. I tried to flash it again with odin but this time I got an error message:
Update Media please wait E:Can't mount /dev/block/mmcblk0p1 (or /dev/block/mmcblk0) (No such file or directory) E:copy_dbdata_media:Can't mount SDCARD:"
Your storage not prepared yet, please use UI menu for format and reboot actions copy default media content failed.
When I boot it moves past the Galaxy I9000m screen shows me the galaxy screen with animation and sound, the screen then goes of leaving me with a black screen and the buttons lit.
Now, no matter what I do I kept on getting this message. I have a feeling that somehow it messed up the internal sd card of my device.
Is there a way I could repartition my card (if that would solve it) and then reinstall a froyo 2.2 update.
Prior to installing the external card - the folders app showed /sd. Which I assumed was the internal one. Then I insert the external one, reboot the phone, and tehre is no additional directory in the folder view. Why is this? Secondly, its a 16GB card. Its reported as 14.58GB. The format option is greyed out. Is it automatically mounted at power on? Ideally I want to know where I install things to know that they are on the external card.
I registered because I have this weird problem of the phone deleting any PLS file that I transfer to the internal or external SD card. I can transfer other file types to the card and they stay there. Is this deliberate by Samsung or Android generally? Can anyone else retain PLS files in their SD card?
I wanted to ask before I RMA my Lexar 32GB Class 10 Micro SD card. I have this card in my Charge and every week or so now it goes corrupt. I hear of people changing the cache, but I have not rooted the device.
Is there a "fix" to prevent this when not rooted?
I wonder what the problem is, if I go to a slower card or smaller capacity, will it be avoided? Tired of loosing all my data on the card each time.
So yeah, basically my Kies crashed while it was updating firmware and now I can't connect my phone to my PC anymore, it just doesn't recognize it. Windows just says something about corrupted device but kies can't recognize it either. And here's the really great stuff. I can't even boot the damn device! It just gives me thing weird logo that has mobile phone and my computer on it, and then some yellow triangle with exclamation mark in between and it doesn't go away. I've tried every button combination and hard-boot with removing the battery but no luck. I'm really really frustrated because I can't use this thing at all now! What a great update software you got there Samsung, really great (endrant). So can anyone give any pointers what I should do?
Does GAOSP Froyo support live wallpapers for i7500? If yes, can you recommend some that seem to run fine without (major) slowdown? I would suspect that the CPU is too slow to run most live wallpapers, but there might be some neat ones that are good to go?
there I am new to this. I would like to find out some information in regards to and update for the samsung galaxy I7500.I live in Australia and it seems the phone cant be updated. Is this true. I have tried on many times to plug my phone into my computer via pc studio.
Since the 8gb with in the i7500 is flash and built in, does the phone use this to store apps/games? Or does it store it in the RAM? If it's in the RAM thats now a lot of space for apps/games especially when some are pretty big files.
When making an image I accidentally had Clockworkmod image be saved to the device itself instead of being saved to the external SD card.
I am able to browse to it using Root Explorer and select to Copy it, but how do I PASTE it onto the external SD card when Root Explorer only accesses the device directory and not the external SD card?
Quick 2nd question: I know on some previous devices such as the Galaxy S 4G you were *not* supposed to run Clockworkmod after booting in and from the Apps Drawer, instead you were only supposed to run directly from the startup screen before booting in. Is it OK to actually start the Clockwork Backup/Restore process from the Apps Drawer of the Galaxy S4 and let it reboot and do its thing or is it only supposed to be run BEFORE booting in?
I have no idea whats going on with my EVO but my memory card keeps getting corrupted.
It started when I was trying to "hide" some pictures using Photovault. All the sudden it couldn't hide or see my already hidden photos'. All of my porn was like totally gone! Seriously though, it corrupted all my phones pictures. Thinking it was the Photovault app, I uninstalled and went to reinstall. Well installer cant see any of the app apk files I have on my mem card.
Then I noticed my MP3's were corrupted, all the sudden it reports there a format the phone cant use and I notice files are just plain missing when I view folders with Astro.
I hooked my EVO to the PC and it wanted me to run check disk on the phone/mem card so I did. This hung causing me to have to hard reboot the phone.
All my data was now gone and Windows 7 reports I need to format this device blah blah blah. I tried to format from within Windows 7, no go. So I formatted from within the phone.
I copied a backup of my memory card I had back to the memory card and all seemed fine.
Hour later I'm right back where I was before, shits getting corrupted again. I again formatted from within the phone but did not copy over my backup as I was at work when this happened.
I fired up Astro though and I see still most of my files even thought I formatted from within the phone.
I didn't want to do the OTA update thingy for fear of loosing root. You know the one that was for the mem card issues. I thought formatting it was all I really needed to do. Maybe not?
Right now I'm doing a full format of the memory card out of the phone and attached to a Sandisk micro usb reader/writer.
I was originally going to get either the HTC Hero or Motorola Droid but found out they are both CMDA. and the Milestone is out of my budget. People have been suggesting to get the Samsung Galaxy S, that's also out of my budget and looks too much like an iPhone. So i stumbled upon these two phones.I'm leaning more towards the Spica because it has superior battery life, and 800mhz compared to the 528mhz the i7500 has. and it can also play DivX.What's making it a difficult decision is the i7500 has an AMOLED Screen. It can display 16,777,216 Colors while the Spica can only display 65,536 Colors I'm not too sure if that will make a difference. Also it has 5mp w/LED Flash while Spica is only 3.2.One phone has a little of both. This will be my first Android phone I'm coming from a Sony Ericsson W995.
First post - was browsing and thought i should let everyone know what happened to my desire after about a month. Bascially, it corrupted my SD card, lost everything on it and the SD card itself was not recoverable. I'm seeing similar reports on these forums but no clear answers other than to try another SD card. Not the best idea. The problem in my case was NOT the 4gb SD card that came with the phone but after a HTC repair turned out to be a faulty SD card reader in the phone. I wouldn't have known it was this (i got no info back in the post) if i hadn't rang up & the guy told me. There's no way i'm the only one...so back up your SD cards often just in case!!
ever since i rooted my phone, ive been having problems with my evo memory card. i formated it and everything tried different roms but same thing happens whenever i take a picture,listen to music, or anything involving the memory card. all apps crash except for the camera which says cannot save files to the SD card due to insufficient file permissions.
Dropped my E4G, and I suppose in the impact the continuity between the card and socket were broken, and, well, I now have a useless sd card until I format it.
Problem is, I have very important photos on this card I would REALLY like to get off because they are not able to be replaced. Pictures of my daughter.I have tried EaseUS and Minitool, which did not work. Tried chkdsk, but the card is listed as RAW, so no go.
So my I randomly got a notification tonight saying my SD card was corrupted. My Eris told me I had to format it, so I tried through my phone, and nothing happened. When I connected it to the computer, I tried formatting it through there and when I click on format (Using Windows 7 32-bit), it tells me there is no drive at drive F: Does anyone have any ideas? I used to have a microSD converter so I could use it in a card reader but I don't know where its gone too, and don't know if it would help anyways.
