    folders keep coming back to sdcard

    i have installed and uninstalled many apps since ive had the droid. who hasnt right?? i have noticed that there are folders that belong to apps that i no longer have on the sdcard. so i delete them but they come right back on there after a reboot. the folders are empty. so they shouldnt take up space but my thought is that something is putting them back on there so maybe thats causing all my fc issues on every reboot, mainly launcher pro. didnt know if anyone could tell me how to keep these un-needed folders off the sdcard to see if that would fix my fc problem.
    thanks

    sounds like you need to wipe data and cache, and reinstall your ROM, and maybe plug your SD card into a PC and manually delete the un-needed folder..

    Are you 100% sure that these folders belong to older apps? Do you have these apps saved in Titanium? Just some thoughts

    this is kind of what i was thinking also that maybe its bc those apps may be backed up on a nandroid back up(which i have like 5 total backups). all the apps that i am not using right now are all deleted from titanium back up also.

    i just mounted my droid to computer to delete folders again and reboot to see if launcher pro fc and it fc right after i unmounted the sdcard. i thought it was apps or something but it looks like it may have something to do with the sdcard? should i try buying a new one and see?

    I suggest you copy everything from the sd card to your pc and re-format the sd card. Then copy back everything to the card and try again before buying a new sd card.
