I am new in android, come from symbian, had all kind of, but only nokia phones for 14 years now. I was trying to find out how the heck to format an external sd card with my new galaxy s2 (sGs2), after literally hours of investigation i found your comment.
I know this story sounds like i was reeaally dumb, but i realize i have my reasons.
After using nokia for so long time, it's really difficult to get along with android. That's because of the very explicit Help-information-option nokia has on their devices. Settings options are fewer, very user-friendly, even if sooo limited. In the android machines you can get lost in the huge number of options, ...
Let's just check this very case: In the settings menu of sGs2 there are 17 options, every one with multiple sub and sub-sub-options, and if you head the right path you get to "Format sd card" in blurry, Unmount sd card (to safely remove it) highlighted...
Come on, this is not a user-friendly layout, but much more a tricky mystifier, how the heck should one guess that you first have to unmount for afterwards doing the format when there it is clearly written TO SAFELY REMOVE IT ... !?!?!?!!!
Is there something like help info tutorial on the phone or can i download an app with tutorials for dummies???
