    Hey all-

    I've been having trouble with my DI telling me my SDHC cards are "broken". I've tried an 8 GB class 6 and the 2 GB micro SD that came with it. I've formatted the cards, still no luck. The weird thing is, once the phone is on and I put in the card, it seems to think it's OK. But randomly when I turn on the phone, it says the card is broken.

    Anyone else having trouble with this?

    I was getting this until I formatted the card using the phone itself. Then it stopped.

    I find it strange that it does not wipe data off the card when you format the card on the phone. I had to go in And delete the previous data using an explored app.

    I got the same message, that it would erase the contents of the card. Was not the case in my situation.

    I formatted the my 16GB card and now it says 200MB. Clearly something was messed up when I had used it on my windows 7 laptop any suggestions on how to restore the card back to normal and then reformat?

    I cannot format the card.
    It reads it, but the option to format it is greyed out. Should I format it in the pc first?

    had to unmount it first....sorry android newbie mistake.
