    HELP!!!!! Running droidmod1.0 with SD card that came with droid When i boot up my phone, it just keeps checking and checking and checking the SD card for errors. cannot access through root explorer and will not connect to my pc. Might have something to do with recent overheating? gotten up to 122 degrees... any ideas? Dont have a compatible card reader btw

    EDIT: Has gone for up to 12 hours before i have rebooted and still showing this message

    There have been some problems lately with SD cards getting corrupted... Can you format the card with the phone?

    I'm thinking that your SD card may need reformatted. I use a Mac and when I first got my Droid I was paying around and forgot to eject (disconnect) from my computer before I pulled the USB cable. I kept receiving an error message preparing Sd card. I took the phone to VZW and they reformatted for me.

    Hope this helps.

    You may have to go out and get an SD/MicrSD converter and a 7-card reader to do this, or find a friend who can help you.... It sucks, but it's just one of those things.

    Dont stress about warranty stuff, this really isnt a big deal, we'll get you through it.

    Understand about the warranty and rooting issue. Another option, go to VZW, Best Buy, Wallmart and pick up a micro sd card adapter. You can plug the sd card into the adapter the adapter into your computer and reformat. I got mine at VZW for about $13.

    IMO, your best bet is to find an adapter or purchase one so you cab format the sdcard. I had this problem a few weeks ago. I believe the card got corrupted and I would get boot loops when it tried to "prepare sdcard". I formatted my card using a PC, and afterwards wiped my data to reinstall droidmod. Been working fine ever since...

    No worries. Most readers just do SD, not SD Micro, so you need the adapter card. I could be wrong, but this was the case last time I checked.

    The high heat could come from the phone working overtime to make your SD card work. Futile, considering it's corruption.

    When you get an adapter and insert make a copy of everything first then see if your computer will allow you to read any of the files. If so, you can restore that data.

    Unfortunately, yes. You will lose all data you have stored on your sdcard. Most software I have messed with has an ability to backup your data before you format, so you may be able to save your pics and vids. My phone usually runs between 96 and 108 degrees. Occasionally it reaches temps upwards of 125 degrees. I am runing at 1.1 Ghz almost all the time. I have read a some info on this and I have found that that the range for our chips goes up to 180 degrees Fahrenheit. so I have not been concerned with my usual readings. The only way I could get an adapter was to buy one with another micro sdcard. So i purchased one from Walmart for $12 with a 2G card.

    It's not abnormal, heat happens when you use the processor and hardware. You should be OK.

    Yeah, it would make sense that your phone is working overtime to correct the issues with the SD card...
