    In my last thread, I asked about how will I format my SD card because it took soo long. I thought it worked out by myself but NO IT DIDN'T :mad: And that time it took two days.

    And I have pressed format like a thousand times but my LG Optimus M (from Metro PCS) still says:

    [SD card damaged! You may need to reformat]

    Anyway, my real questions are ...

    1- How long does it take to format in average
    2- What should I do after I click format?
    3- And my SD card always says "SD card damaged" after whenever I take it out then put it back in, Why is that?
    4- And I had 2 cards, when the situation in #3 happens i would try my new card but my phone showed that the BRAND NEW ONE IS also frigging damaged!... Like WTF!
    5- How can I prevent that ?

    PLEASE DON'T THINK THAT I AM BEING A NUISANCE, I AM JUST HAPPY THAT I FOUND A PLACE THAT CAN HELP ME WITH NO COST, or else I am really screwed! THANKS A MILLION IN ADVENCE.

    Do you have access to a computer you can format the sd card in?
    you should never have more then 5 mins to format but if the card is damaged formating in a computer sometimes fixes it.

    this sounds stupid but, in the sd card adapter make sure the switch where it says "Lock" is off, might not be letting comp read/write to the card.

    does mount/unmount work at all? did u do anything to damage the sd card slot on ur fone?

    check all the minor/silly things and hopefully one might work!
