    Giving up for now, but here is what I have.....

    I did get the SD card formatted as FAT32 using:

    diskutil eraseVolume "MS-DOS FAT32" HTCSD /dev/disk4s2

    I've attached a screen shot showing my sdcard (it's in the Incredible, USB connected to my computer). This shows the card is FAT32 and contains PB31IMG.zip and only PB31IMG.ZIP (not PB31IMG.zip.zip).

    Should PB31IMG.zip be precisely 146,110,009 bytes?

    Thanks very much for any ideas anyone might have.

    Also what rom are you on?? I think I remember there was a nightly that wouldn't mount the SD card correctly. I could be wrong on that though.

    Ya. Its is not a rom issue then. Did you pull out the SD card without unmounting from the phone ever? And did you try the other PB31 link I gave ya?

    Will try the other file when I get home. Negative on the pulling. The card seems ok otherwise...... for instance, I can do format from the phone's setting menu, it just ends up FAT16: )

    I think its the file you downloaded. Let me know if the newer one doesn't work and I'll try to find another one.

    Also I ran into a issue where the .zip originally DL'D had a read me in it. Thus it meant the changing the original file to PB31IMG.zip would not work as there were other files in it. Make sure You only have a correct img

    I may have gotten it! I booted up an old XP machine and did the format there. Then I attached the phone to my mac and moved the PB31IMG.zip to the phone.
    All good now!
    Thanks for getting me through that!
    Now if that OTA Froyo would just get here......

    I'm having Error 170 USB connection while performing the RUU. It started off fine, said it was replacing version 1.36.605 with version 3.21 etc. Then it said installing bootloader, then as soon as it was successful with the bootloader, now it will not connect to the phone during the RUU.

    Tried on another computer, and same thing, everything was fine until finished installing "Bootloader" in windows.
