    I woke up this morning to an SDcard error. I reformatted the card on the droid...

    -I can see the directory of the SDcard in Astro
    -When plugged into the usb on my laptop (xp) the drive shows up
    -I have the options to mount and debug on the Droid
    -I can choose mount with no issues
    -when I select the drive on my PC; windows tells me I need to format it.
    - so I say "What the heck!" and then I attempt to format in FAT32
    - PC tells me that it cannot complete the operation

    I was able to push files to the SDCard via Adb!...why does windows refuse to see that the card is already formatted! ARG!:mad:

    is there any way to fix this without having to get a card reader?

    hmmm...I rebooted the PC...now Droid soft boots when I plug it in. There is probably a simple fix for this. I just wonder what it is......

    So I had to do a total data wipe and clear the cache to stop the rebooting.

    I must have had something installed that was conflicting with the USB. Still can't get the PC to recognize the SD card as formatted....going to try a microSD reader
