    After copying an mp3 file to my phone via USB it says "Damaged SD card". However if I pull the card and read it from my PC, it seems fine. I was able to copy all the contents to my PC.

    So what gives? Can I somehow make my phone realize the error of its ways? Or do I have to reformat the card and then copy everything back?

    I've got the 2.2 update. Standard Droid.

    Any tips?

    I had that happen to me because I pulled the USB cable out of my Mac and did not unmount/disconnect my SD card. I reformatted my SD card and have not had any issues since.

    Yeah. Make sure everything's backed up from the card and reformat it. Linux is VERY demanding about mount/unmount states.
