SD card issues after GB Update
Updated from stock Froyo to GB. After first boot-up, all applications that are on the SD card disappeared from the home screens. Thought it was kinda strange... but oh well. Added them all back on. Today, plugged in the DX to the laptop... and let it charge. After I unplugged... all applications disappeared again from the home screen.
Anybody else having issues with SD card applications after GB update? it happened once... no big deal. happened again... pretty annoying. if it happens again... gonna be pissed.

I updated this morning, and now I have a notification that says: "SD card is blank or has unsupported filesystem". Now my gallery is empty, music is gone, and can't use the camera because it says I have no SD card installed. Very frustrated. I don't have a micro sd reader to check the disk.
I have everything backed up, so I tried reformatting the card through the android settings menu, but it doesn't seem to be doing anything. Did gingerbread just trash by card?

I 've been having the same issue since updating to GB. The apps just disappear from the
home screen whenever I plug it into my comp or TV and never come back once the SD card is mounted again. They do show up in the app drawer though. I have tried everything I can think of even formatting the card and still no luck. This is all on a stock DX with theota GB update.

I haven't seen anything yet. the ota update should not have touched your sd card. It definitely should not have formatted it or corrupted it. A possibility is that the card was already bad or close to end of life. If this is true then the process of downloading and reading the update may have triggered the failure of the card.

I found something that might be related to the disappearing homescreen apps. Another forum had people talking about not being able to long-press to add apps to the homescreen. The solution for that was to remove any and all other launchers and home switchers. I'll play around with the homescreen apps tomorrow.

Blank SD Card
I have searched the forums and this is the first string that seems to apply.
Any ideas for me to try?
Thank you in advance.

It seems like there a few issues going on here... a problem with homescreens & separately, a problem with corrupted SD cards.
All three of the Droid X's I have, had problems with the sd card after installing gingerbread.
Does anybody know:
(1) what on the cards is actually getting corrupted?
(2) are the cards actually being fried?
