    Hi, I have been searching for a fix for a coupe days I am hoping someone can give me some ideas, 2 days ago I was downloading some new music to my phone and got the error that the SD card had been removed. I pulled the card reinserted and the phone didn't recognize it so I connected to the pc and HTC sync, neither way recognized the card tried a Sd recovery program it couldn't find anything no pictures no music so I tried reformatting and the card could not be formatted. I figured it was just card failure and I happened to have a new 8GB so I figured i'd use it till I could get a new 32GB card.
    Put the new card in all is good so I took a couple pictures they stored fine then I tried syncing my evernote account and it wouldn't sync so I uninstalled it and tried reinstalling it I got it downloaded but no sync then error sd card has been removed so I pulled the card put it in the pc and the pictures were there so I reformatted the card and put it back in the phone and it worked fine but still EV wouldn't sync I looked for similar problems with evernote but none were the same.
    Used the phone all day and the card was good took more picts all good then tonight I decided to put some of my music back on and started downloading it put 2 or 3 on then the sd error again. Pulled the card took the pictures off again and reformatted again put it in phone it recognized it and all was good this time so I pulled the card and put the music directly on the card from the pc put the card back in the phone and it was good for about 2 minutes then the sd error. :angry:

    Please Help

    I had to send a TBOLT back last year due to this issue.... Kept eating up SD cards VZW sent me a refurb and it never happened again... But the cards were not readable no matter what I did to them.....

    So far I have been able to get the pictures off of the new card and reformat it. But the first one was toast. Did you try a factory reset before returning the phone?

    Yes vzw always has you try a factory reset before you can return a device.

    If you could send the link that would be great and I'll try and get the scripts. I have downloaded App brain to save my apps and sms backup+ to save my texts that I need, is there anything else I need to backup before aa reset?

    I sent that way to early kinda feeling good now SaHn hhaha but for real factory reset and let me know but make sure u back up ur apps I recommend rooting your phone its always the way to go honestly. You may thing your voiding your Warrenty but flash to a srock rom and your phone is back to warranty certified haha. Try different flashes different rooms I mean factory reset idvrhat don't work run sd scripts rooted
