    Poll: How many have blown a MicroSD Card in their Droid?

    I got to wondering as I was coming home from Office Depot with my new 89 dollar MicroSD Card. This is the third card for my Droid. I have not even owned this phone for a year and I am on my third card. At 89 bucks a pop it's getting expoensive. I know I can get them cheaper, but I like convenience so this post is not about the cost, but about the reliability of the cards.

    So...why do I go through so many cards? I never had a problem until I rooted and over clocked. Ok...I rooted and over clocked the first week...so that has no relationship, right? LOL

    But just a show of hands: Did you blow an SD Card? and Did you Over Clock your phone?

    What really got me to thinking about this is the last card I replaced...today...when I pulled it out of the card reader it was so brittle it cracked in three places. Heat?

    Bad SD card is bad SD card. OCing should have nothing to do with it. If the temp was really getting hot enough to make that big of a difference it would shut off the phone as the battery has a pretty low thermal limit.

    I cant say i ever had any problems with my D1 sd card. I ran it at 1200 oc for about ten months. I recently upgraded to an X and no problems yet...
    This isn't really my signature, I just retype it everytime i post.

    Well...I guess I was on the wrong path then. Good to know. I'll keep it OCed then.

    Gopt to thinking while I was sitting in the Dentist's waiting room. This poll won't tell us anything if responses come in for OCed and bad sd, mixewd with not OCed and bad sd cuz the way I built it. Right now it is showing that my theory was bad...cuz I'm the only vote for a bad SD card.

    May as well shut 'er down, mods.
