    I just installed Cyanogen using my 2gb sd card as my 16 gb sd card doesnt like my computer as its sdhc. When i put the 16GB card in the phone it locks up and after it rebooted itself a couple times it just said that it was still checking for errors. the card had an existing ext2 partition that i used with jf 1.5.1 . How do i fix this and make the phone recognize the card?

    My guess would be to reformat the card to FAT then repart it.

    Maybe someone else will chime in.

    Well you cant fix a sdcard without a working r/w adapter ... either external or the phone ... so suggest you buy a cheapy SDcard at RadioShack that comes with s free reader ....

    Copy all your stuff off on to the pc in a folder ...

    Then re-format with FAT32...

    If you are going to ever put an ext partition on it ... do that now as a EXT3 partition at approx 800MB to 1 GB ....

    Paragon Partition Magic is the best tool IMO ...

    With the ext3 partition CyanogenMod will automatically move you apps to sdcard and configure system for Apps2SD operation ...
