    This has happened to me berfore when flashing. I would try an external card reader if there is information on the card you need to save.

    I use my SD card adapter, and it doesn't format on windows, I even booted up disk utilty with os x, and tried formatting, and I waited 12 mins and it was still at the half way mark, so I don't think it was going to work. please help me out.

    In that case it could might as well be a dead sd card. I've had that happen to me on a memory stick pro duo... it was a fake 8gb from china. Eventually I found out they take a 4gb card and make it look exactly like the retail 8gb (even when I got it they made the computer think for a bit that it was 8gb big but right off the hop couldnt copy large files to it with out errors). Worked for a while and then just wouldnt format anymore and when going into properties it would say only 4gb and even that wouldnt format. So what I ended up doing was going to a retail store and buying a new one and putting the old on in the box and taking it back saying it didnt work. Shifty yes but oh well I got my money back and a brand new card.

    PS there is programs you can find (google of course) to check the card.

    The card actually just got it yesterday it came with the phone.. I think I'm going to try what you said though, go to walmart, buy a 8gb, come back the next day and replace it with the old 8gb and just say its not working.

    Actually.. if I take it back, it's opened, etc.. won't they just give me another 8gb or store credit?

    Depends what store but usually yes... Also as long as there is no serial numbers which would be news to me on a memory card...

    it seems that lots of xt701 users have the problem of SD card reading. i hope mororola can solve this problem by upgrading the systme version.
