    I rebooted my phone earlier today and it now comes up with a message saying
    The weird thing is that I can boot into bootstrap recovery and access the SD card just fine... I don't currently have an adapter to plug the card into a computer either to save the files and format the card like the X wants me to. Anyone have any ideas?

    If I were you I would get a card reader and backup everything before your card corrupts itself to the point that you can't back it up like mine did. Mine wiped itself and wouldn't read on any computer, card reader, and phone I tried. It wouldn't even let me format it on my phone.What kind of card do you have? Mine came with a no name card made in Korea.

    Yeah, I can't seem to access it on a computer either... Tells me I need to format it first. The strange thing is that ClockworkMod Recovery can read the SD card fine.

    I don't see a brand name on mine, it just says Made in Korea...

    I am restoring my "stock" backup so I don't loose it and then I am going to see if I can format the card. I don't think I will loose much, mostly pictures that I didn't copy anywhere. Luckily I shared most of my videos to youtube.

    So I dropped in a smaller SD card while I was trying to recover data from the one that came with the phone (no luck w/ that). I had been able to restore a stock backup before I attempted to recover data.

    I didn't really do much with the phone when the smaller SD card was in, so I don't know if the Android Market was working properly with it, but no that I have given up hope of recovering data from the original card I have formated it and put it back in the phone.

    My problem is no that the Android Market does not show my history of apps. Is there something that I need to copy from the temp. card to the permanent card? I don't know what to do to get the apps to show up again. I have tried a couple ROMs and when I set them up from scratch the Market doesn't show them either...

    I still don't know why my download history was lost from the Market in the process of reformatting my SD card, but I was never able to get it recognize that I had downloaded anything... The following is the process that I went through to install the apps from the Market again. There is probably an easier way (and hopefully you will share how), but this is what I could figure out!

    1. Fortunately for me Clockwork Recovery continued to be able to read the card even though nothing else could (Windows, Linux, the phone when booted, etc...) so I could restore my stock backup (that I had not saved anywhere else...).
    2. Once I restored that backup, I formatted the card (in Windows, doing it from the phone didn't seem to do anything) and used Astro to make a backup of my apps to the SD card.
    3. I loaded a new ROM (I don't recall which one at the moment).
    4. I copied my stock backup to several other computers to make sure I still have that if the card ever dies completely.
    5. Went to the Market to see if it recognized me and had my history. It didn't :(
    6. Used Astro to install the apps from the SD card hoping they would then be recognized in the Market. They installed fine, but the Market still showed I had downloaded nothing.
    7. I went to the phone settings to manage the applications to write down a list of what I had so I could re-download from the market.
    8. While looking at the list I remembered that if I went to the applications properties I had the option to share the app. I used that option to send an email to myself for each app.
    9. I loaded a new ROM to start fresh, again no history in the Market.
    10. I went through my email and clicked the link in each message that I had sent myself in step #8. This took me to the Market and I downloaded and installed the apps from there.

    Even though steps 8 and 10 took awhile, I think it was faster than manually searching for the apps again in the Market. I have also archived those emails so I don't have to start from scratch if this happens again. I have since loaded several ROMs and the Market seems to be working great.
