    Ok so I'm following the guide on this website How to Root Motorola Droid on Android 2.1 My Digital Life and I've flashed over the SPrecovery file to the droid. When I go into the recovery mode, I believe that's what it's called, and then try to install from the sd card, I get the error that the card couldn't be mounted. How do i fix this problem? I also get error status 31 when trying to create a nandroid backup. All help is greatly appreciated.

    Let me check. Booting it up now..

    Ok it gives me the option to mount the /data, /system, /cache, and /sdcard. Also to enable the usb mass storage. /cache was already selected.

    I occasionally have this on my rooted droid. I can correct it by reflashing recovery. I'm not an expert at this stuff by any means, but you might want to try that.
