    I woke up this morning to my phone constantly checking my SD card for errors. After some reading, it looks like I either need to format it or replace it completely.

    1) If I have no micro-SD card reader and obviously can't mount it, is there a way to format it? I guess if there was any way for me to get my Titanium directory off of it, that would be good too... but it's looking slim at this point.

    2) Can any micro-SD card work in the phone? I'm assuming so, but hate to assume.

    First try reseating it. Take it out and put it back in. They can get dislodged just enough to cause errors.

    If that doesn't work, then I'd suggest getting an adapter for your computer and see if it works there. An adapter will be far cheaper than a new card.

    And yes, any microSD will work.
