    I was trying to take a picture and all the sudden my phone rebooted itself. When it came back on I had this warning "Preparing sd card, checking for errors" on the bar. Usually it goes away after the phone is done loading, but not this time. It doesn't go away and I can't access anything on my sd card. Under settings it shows that I have no sd card, but the card is there. Help please.

    try this

    ok on the droid 1 i had to reformat my sdcard 3 or 4 times during usage over a year due to it becoming corrupt, so make sure to back it up regularly. But 1 thing to try is turn off phone remove battery. remove sd card put batttery back in than restart phojne let it boot into os without sdcard. than shut phone down and put back in sdcard and start back up. aand see if it doesnt recognize it correctly. if you have a card reader when its out of the phone you can try and aaccess the sdcard on computer and see if you can also. if you can back thtat puppy up. if not its format time :(
