    For some reason when loading my SD Card it says "Mounted ReadOnly".

    Any reasons why this would happen?

    I have been messing around with installing new ROM's and that which is probably what caused it but how do I fix it?

    plug it into a windows pc (mine is windows 7) and run the check disk on it to fix the errors, worked a treat for me

    Where's the check disk on Windows 7, I do have a Windows 7 partition but I use Linux so don't know my way around Windows 7 that well.

    Help, I formatted my SD Card and then created a partition in GParted (512mb and 14gb) but now my phone can't mount the SD Card meaning that I can't install a new ROM from the card.

    My phone is in a continuous loop now so I can't get into it, any help really appreciated!

    Also, my 14gb partition was root so I had access to everything but the 512mb wasn't root so I couldn't change anything on that partition, how do I make it root?

    It's definitely the SD Card, just put my 4gb one in my phone and works fine, I get the following error message when Windows 7 tried to access the card:

    I tried troubleshooting but it couldn't find a problem, typical Windows, telling there's a problem but then telling me it can't find a problem :D

    It's only loading as ready only btw.
