    Suddenly I am having problems with my Desire. At least once a day I have to re seat sd card in order to get phone to see it. Anyone else get this?

    It's a new 16gig SanDisk that has not been a problem since I got it 3 weeks ago but this weekend when using the camera it said something about file permissions and would only work when I reseated the card.

    Other programs like backing up etc are being disrupted by this.

    Cheers for any help.

    Copy the contents of your sd card to your pc, format the sd card & then copy the contents back to sd card.
    This usually fixes most problems with sd card.
