    So over the past 24 hrs I have had a few apps either disappear completely (games) or other utility apps such as Droid Forums and Droid Life uninstall, leaving the homescreen widget I had placed still there. When I go to click on it, I get a message saying this app does not exist. What gives?? Ive probably re-dl'd those apps 3 time a piece now (first time I moved to sd, 2nd and 3rd I did not) Anyone else having this problem?

    DROID forums dissapears every once ins while. The icon is the default DROID error icon but the program still runs if u click it. I've also had it completely remove after a reboot

    Sent from my DROID BIONIC using DroidForums

    The default place apps are loaded is the sd-media area which is NOT where they should be. You need to move them to the phone area and they won't vanish.

    I don't know how to change the default.

    I had this issue when moving apps to the sd card. A reboot after the move brought all but one back to my app list.

    Yep, don't install any apps to the media drive, just media. Install to your SD.
