    Hi guys,

    I'm having trouble with my desire after a couple of days of being rooted.

    My phone won't recognize my sd card at all, I can't access it to format it from anywhere (phone, pc, mac).

    I have searched a bit and eventually found this thread on xda

    [DEV] USB-BRICK FIX - Restore USB function on your bricked Desire - xda-developers

    the things is, i'm a noob, and I'm stuck on the first step

    I can boot into recovery, but when i select fastboot i can't see where to type in any commands on the phone or the computer...

    I would really appreciate some guidance on this :(

    anyone know how to fix this?
    anyone know how to manage to type in any of the commands on that xda thread???

    sry if it's a stupid question, but i'm stressing out that i can't fix it :(

    edit: Maybe i'm not usb bricked? the computer recognizes the phone is plugged in, just can't access/mount/recognize the sd card on the phone or computer?

    Might I suggest a wasted SD Card? Have you tried a different one?

    if your computer sees it when its booted and you can get a menu on the device to switch between the various usb options then its not a usb brick
    its likely you have a borked card.
    can you see the file structure ion estrongs/astro?

    try putting it in an external usb card reader or seeing if you can format it from the device

    I couldn't format the card or get any computer to recognize it even through a card reader. Bought a new card and all is well. Thanks for your input guys.
