    Connecting to car audio via USB Corrupts SD Card

    Hello, I'm new here my name's Adam nice to meet you all.

    So here's pretty much whats happening. I have a usb capable car stereo (Alpine Ida-x100) and when I connect it to my droid it allows me to view all the folders on my droid. So I go to the folder on my SD card containing my music pick a song and it plays. This is where it goes horribly wrong.

    Once I stop my car put it in park, I dismount my droid. Once dismounted the droid scans the sd card for problems and then BAM Damaged SD please reformat or whatever the error is.

    Any one else get this problem or know of a way to fix it?

    Nobody Really

    Nope, I do not know of many people with this capability on their car stereo. However, USB should be USB. If it works on your PC/Mac it should be ok on your stereo. Otherwise I would suspect the stereo. This doesn't help I realize but at least you got a response! Good luck either way and let us know if you come up with something.

    Can you "eject" the device from the car stereo before you dismount from the Droid? I would think there would be something similar to Windows' "Safely Remove" process.

    I will answer my own question.

    This is from page 4 of the manual for your stereo device.

    This was my first thought also, it has to be the problem

    Try testing with another Micro SD card to check. My issue was similar yet mine turned out to be a bad slot to accept the card (was hoping it was just a card). Seems like it was working just fine (a little slower than expected). Then I got the message that my card was blank, Yet plugging into the pc and I could still see all my files. Just shutting the phone off would make it go from being able to use the memory card to "card has been removed" or "SD card is blank". The Verizon store said the slot was bad and the new referb is on the way.

    No

    I tried changing the source, and my sd card was still corrupted after disconnecting

    I'm confused

    [How does trying a different card tell me if the slot is bad? I think this problem is different. When I disconnect my phone from my car stereo, the card is definitely corrupted. I tried turning the phone off, and connecting my phone to my computer to see if I could retrieve my files that way, but reformatting was the only way to make my sd card usable again. I think somehow dismounting the phone on the stereo end is the right track, although changing the source didn't work anyway. But even if it did fix the problem, I would still be weary of connecting my phone again. What if I stall my engine or just forget to change the source before I stop the engine, I will lose all my files again. Any thoughts?
