    What size memory card did you replace it with?

    Did you replace it before the message, or after?

    was this right after you installed the new card? Maybe you need to format it? Just make sure you save everything before you do so.

    I would think the card needs to be formatted. It wont throw an error til its trying to be used.

    Make sure the directories aren't read only. Idk why but that happened on my storm a few times and once on my Eris. That could be a problem.

    I have a samsung epic on android 2.1. I used to have the sd card damaged problem. I had to backup everyday for fear of losing information. I saw on one forum a note about upgrading to a Class 4 sd card. I went to frys and they only had class 10 in 16gb (about $40). I purchased and I have not had this problem since!!!



    Problem: SD Card error

    Problem Solved: Trash the Class 2 sd card that came with the phone and get class 4 or higher.



    Woohoo!
