    Hi,

    I rootted my desire with [HOWTO] Root Your HTC Desire in One Click! | Root My Droid directions. Now after the root everything is great exept the sdcard cant be read? Like when u connect phone to PC it asks what option it takes. There aren't anymore the discspace option or what ever. Also when in options and there "SD and phone storage" says just total space Unavailable. Should I now unroot or what should I do?

    Welcome to the forum.
    Try rebooting your phone first, if that is not successful turn the phone off & take out the sd card & check it in a card reader.

    How about in a card reader on a pc, if it is readable through that then copy the contents to your pc & format the sd card.
    Then copy the contents back to the card & try in the phone.

    Do you mean a card reader in some laptops? I dont have that in my normal pc. Can it work when I insert the card to my old Nokia and connect it to pc?

    Yes m8 a card reader in a laptop will do, even your old nokia connected to a pc can be used as a card reader.

    Well this transfer is going to take some time. The biggest relief is now all backups are safe. If you can help me get my Desire ok, I will be so ****ing delighted.

    Well i can only try, i had my old phone an lg renoir play up for a little while.
    Cured it just by formatting the memory card.
    The desire on the other hand, can usually be sorted out by treating it as a pc.
    Most tricks for pc problems work on sorting out the phone

    I tried to use my old Nokia's SDcard in there and it works fine. Now starting to format my HTC card.

    Now Desire can cope with the Sdcard. Thanks really much for you. What do you think I should do now? Is root really so better that I should stick with it.

    Yes m8 it gives you the ability to get the custom roms, when the devs at xda get the ota version of froyo they will optimise it so its better than standard.
