    This sounds like a rediculous question, but I have a partitioned SD card in my Droid and I need it to be reformatted so that it's like brand new. I mount up my Droid, select the Removable Disk (Droid) and click format, but it says there is no disc, and it unmounts the droid. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Try Settings > SDCard and phone storage settings > format SD card. You are going to have to unmount it first, because it is probably grayed out.

    Do you have a usb card reader? I have one that uses all the types of sd cards. You should be able to put it in one and formate from there.

    On the phone, do not have it connected via USB to your computer. In the phones menu go to "Settings" then "SD Card & phone Storage".

    Here is where you "unmount SD card". This unmounts it from the phone. "Format SD card" will then be selectable. Selecting that will format the card and when finished, automatically remount it to the phone so the Droid can use it.
