Grrr...why does windows hate on my droid????!!!! Windows wants to format my sdcard when I try to mount droid to PC.
Need help...fresh ideas!
So Monday I woke up to a sdcard error.
Sunday night I installed the batteryleft widget...in order to calibrate the widget I ran my droid's battery to empty. I am sure that is where the sdcard was damaged. Probably some SDcard process was interrupted when the droid finally died.Eventually I reformatted the SDcard on the droid. That seemed to go smoothly. I was able to see the sdcard with Astro and Linda. Other apps that use the SD card worked properly (eg Beautiful widgets, gallery etc).
When I connected my droid a PC (windows XP, vista and windows 7) windows wanted to reformat my card.
I connected my card to a sdcard reader...windows saw the files on the card with out any problem....I was able to add and remove files to the card using the reader
I reformatted the SDcard in all the various ways I could think of...on the droid...on different PCs...with my fingers crossed...with my eyes closed...no change in the situation...SO I am thinking the problem is not my SDcard
I reinserted the card in the droid...hooked it up to the PC to try various settings...and I get the reboot cycle. after trouble shooting this for about an hour I decided on a factory reset of the droid and yet ANOTHER reformat of the SDcard.
No more reboot cycle...but Windows PCs still want to reformat my SDcard when I hook my droid up and mount.
- Would going back to stock w/ no root no busybox potentialy fix this?
- Could I live with transferring files to and from my Droid via sdcard reader?
- What about a refurb?...Has anyone had good or bad luck with VzW refurbs
