Im having trouble switching my sd card and finding any instructions to do it without making my Inc mad. I have a 2 gig and am trying to switch to a 4 gig and just want to know how to go about it without having to go into recovery again. Thanks in advance. :o
followed the instructions but now the the new card is in, it just has a notification on the status bar that i removed my sd card and need to insert a new one. if i go to sd card settings the option to remount the sd card is no able to be selected. any ideas?
Now under Menu > Settings > SD & Phone Storage is there an option to Mount SD card?
You may need to run Format SD card first. If it's a brand new card, just go ahead and format it. If you need to format AND if there is something on there you want to save, you'll have to take it out and find a way to transfer that to your computer first, it'll be deleted after the format otherwise.
Hmmm, Ok, that means it can't see the drive is in there. That could be hardware.
Did you pop out the old card or pull it out? It should pop out, (this is similar to how my camera takes it's battery for example, push in and it pops out) or did you pull it out? I kinda didn't realize it'd pop in/out when I first did this. Power down and try poping it out and then putting it back in. Just trying to make sure the new card has a proper connection to the phone so that the phone can see it.
Ok, I'm not at all familiar with rooted/custom ROMs so this may be way beyond my pay grade, might have to wait for someone else to come along who knows more.
rebooted and phone came up ok. said blank sd card in phone on status bar. went to sd card settings and formated it, then mounted it. when mounting says sd card save to remove and blank sd card. then it just goes back to the same icon on status bar and doesnt seem to recognize new card.
You're totally welcome, sorry I can't be more help.
The only other thing I can think of is to format it on the computer, but that means you'd need a way to connect the card to your computer. I pulled an SD card from my Blackberry and really had no trouble, old one out, new one in, format and I was done. May or may not have to do with custom ROM? By which I mean maybe check with your ROM and see if other people are having trouble or there is a solution.
your a genius i had to clockwork restore back to basic sense. once there i tried again and the phone recognized the sd card and formatted it. now just gotta reflash the rom and call it a day, thanks!!!!!!
