    I'm getting ready to sell my Thunderbolt and wanted to clean the SD card of all data.

    I backed up all data first. Then went into Settings, Storage and the last option at the bottom, "Erase SD card."

    After SD card was erased I have been unable to mount it again from inside the settings and also from within TWRP recovery.

    The message that keeps showing up in the notification area is:

    "SD Card Safe To Remove"

    I have not been able to get rid of this message.

    So far, I have rebooted into TWRP recovery, but am unable to mount the SD card from there.
    I wiped cache, dalvik and tried a factory reset, still no good.

    I removed the SD card, booted the phone without it. Then shut off the phone re-inserted the SD card and booted up again.

    Still getting the message above.

    Any ideas what I can do to get this working?
