Thanks Pasta.....I didn't know you can fix a card like that. I always had to copy & paste re-format and load it back up again.
P.S. in another thread you did a good write up on your rooting experience; I wanted to test drive mine before I would root. I also had a lack of time before bed too, so I'm using the side load method. I have 2 questions for you:
1) Did Albert's root method go smooth for you?
2) Do you know of a place where I can get some APK files to sideload until/if I decide to root?
