Hi everybody -- a little while back I posted about a problem I was having with my SD card.
Those problems weren't going away, and I realized that the Market was also acting strangely -- so I decided to do a hard reset just to see if that would help.
So I did. What I didn't think about before I reset the phone, though, is that the Market went back to Version 2.09, and as soon as I tried to open it, it attempted to re-download all the apps I had installed before the reset. I had a lot (don't laugh -- I had about 300). It seems like this basically overwhelmed the phone. Nothing will download or install. If I go to the Market, it opens up "Downloads" (remember, that's what it used to be called) and shows "Starting download" indicators for like forty apps, and just hangs there.
I'm pretty sure there's still something wrong with the SD card. I'm able to access all the files on it via a card reader and my PC, but when I go into Settings, the "Format SD card" option is grayed out, and the "Unmount SD card" causes Settings to hang and finally gives me a force close. Also, whenever I pull up any app's settings page in "Manage applications", it can't tell me how much memory is being used -- it stays stuck on "Computing..." in the size column.
So my question is -- does anyone have an idea about how I might be able to block the Market from trying to restore all my previously installed apps? There doesn't seem to be a way of dissociating them from my Android Market account on the web.
Thanks for whatever suggestions you might have. Presumably the first thing I need to do is replace the card, but I'm concerned that there's some other problem with the phone that'll cause the same issues to recur.
