Default SD card problems.

I have a HTC Wildfire S and am having some issues with the Micro SD card. The Samsung 2GB card that came with the phone works fine but was not large enough so I purchased a SanDisk 4GB card. When my phone is writing data to the card I get a notification saying "SD Card unexpectedly removed" and I have to unplug it and then put it back in.

I thought that there must be some kind of a fault with the card and so today I purchased a SanDisk 8GB ultra HCSD card, but to my dismay this card is also having the same issue. If I connect the card directly to a PC it works absolutely fine, but writing data to the card through the phone results in the "unexpectedly removed" message.

Does anyone perhaps have any ideas as to what is causing this to happen and how to solve the problem preferably without having to purchase yet another SD card? Thanks.

Hmmmm... I've never had an error like that. Try a different brand and if that doesn't cut it, the phone's SD reader must be faulty. Btw, the card that came with it should be a Samsung.

The card that came with the phone was a Samsung 2GB card which works fine, the problem only appears when using a different card.

I've done a bit of googling and it seems that it is quite a common problem that I'm just going to have to put up with. It's just really annoying when I'm trying to download music and stuff.

I have the same as Cafekampuchia and never had a problem. I guess it must be a brand problem

I'm using a SanDisk 8GB card without any problems.

Having said that, HTC replaced my original phone under warranty as it failed to read the SD card, despite the reader being replaced.

I dont have much experience with android phones, but so far as I know, I have seen people formatting their card to FAT32 file system. The original Sd-Card has FAT32 file system probably in all or most android phones.

The reason it works in windows cos any file system works in windows. But maybe only FAT32 file system works in android phones. So, if they are not formatted to FAT32 file system yet, maybe thats the problem.

When you format, be careful cos FAT and FAT32 file system are different and not same.

does the card need to SDHC or just SD?
My SanDisk that came from the HTC accessory shop is 16GB looks like class 4 and is alos SDHC, I have contacted them and they are sending out a replacement card as the original 2GB Samsung card works fine.

Hello, i have the same problem from yesterday, after installing some aplications on my phone. It works fine for 1 week and from yesterday I need to pull out the card and put back to recognize it. I got restore the phone to factory settings, format the sd card, the same problem, update the software to 2.3.5 and the same.
If it was the sd card I should have the problem from the first time, not?
I was loking for this problem on forums, but I got no solution.

Problem solved, a new 16gb card and everything is ok!

This is a ridiculous problem. HTC wildfire S says that, it supports upto 32 GB memory. But SanDisk mobile ultra 8GB does not work at all. when i try to take a snap with the camera or try to synchronize music from PC it always shows "SD card removed unexpectedly"

Updating phone software version, changing the memory card is no help at all.

Please help me about this.

Or have i wasted my money totally?

If changing the memory card was no help, then my guess is that's it's more a hardware problem. If you have your warranty, get it checked by the HTC people.

Googling forums we can see that "SD card unexpectedly removed" is a common problem for HTC smartphones.
I wrote about that to HTC support and got an answer: "Unfortunately we don't recommend for this devise cards higher than class 6"
I think, it is quite disgraceful for HTC, but this is an explanation and a way of solving the problem - to get class 6 card.

Thanks, I had the same problems with a class 10 sandisk ultra. I wish they made that class 6 recommendation a bit more obvious.

Exclamation I may have a solution

I have the same Issue with a SanDisk 8GB Class 4 micro SD - I was browsing about and found a possible solution. It says shut down your phone, insert card, wait for it to mount so program's can be ran from the card. Then immediately unmount the card and remove it.
Finally replace the card and all should be well.

I am trying it out on a SD heavy program right now and will let you know if it fails.
Good luck
