    My phone was running a bit slow today so i rebooted it. After it came up, it said "Damaged SD Card". When i attempt to open the SD card with Root Explorer, it says SD card not currently mounted and when i attempt to connect thru my computer, it does nothing.
    Can you help me with recovery on this card and is there anything i need to do with a new card to use it? Are there any files that need to be on the card?

    Thanks...

    OK...I just removed the SD card from the phone and was able to open it with the SD card adapter on my computer. I put the new card in the phone - same "Damaged SD Card" message...what now?

    Can anyone help with this? it doesn't matter if i use the old or new SD card, my phone thinks they are bad. I tried to reformat in the phone - won't work either. Both cards work fine on the computer.

    Help?

    I'm having literally the EXACT same problem right now, down to the letter. Working last night, fell asleep listening to music off the SD card, woke up this morning with the music still playing (so no damage yet, obviously, because it was still working), all my core temps were normal according to SetCPU. I never even restarted the phone, I just unplugged it and put it in my pocket like I always do and then an hour later when I tried to launch something, I got the dreaded "Bad SD Card - Reformat?" message in the notification bar. I don't have a card reader except on my PS3, but the PS3 couldn't read it either. I can't get the card to mount on any of my computers and Astro says the card is blank. WTF is going on? Did you ever figure anything out? I NEED THIS STUFF! 16 GB of unrecoverable music and two years worth of pictures would be a huge loss, not to mention the incredible pain in the ass of reformatting and redoing everything.

    Just when I got MIUI running all smoothly, too. Crud. Any help would be appreciated.
