    You might want to take the SD card out of your phone and back up everything on it to your computer. Then you can reformat it and put the data back on. That's what I ended up having to do a couple of months ago.

    Nope I try to connect it thru usb cable and with a memory adpartor. No luck! Question if I format the sd card will lose all my apps that have been copy there. I don't keep much data on my phone expect for pictures.

    how old is ur computer? before 2008 computers u cant connect a memory card over 4 gigs unless u have a special reader..i found this out 2 days ago...but if u have a newer computer and it doesnt read ur sd card, go to verizon and get them to give u another one..thats what i did...but if somehow u can get it to come up on ur computer, then format it after u take everything off and store it on ur computer

    Thanks, I have new pc, but from what I can tell sd card is dead. I have no problem going to Verizon dealing with their techs :icon_eek:. Did I lose all the apps had copied to my sd card? I know it's all track back by email address.

    It might just be that app that made it that way...anyways, did you try an sdcard reader for your computer? Your computer'd need to have a slot for it but it might be an alternative than vzW
