    Received my 2.1 update Sunday (Lynchburg, VA from 1.5) and everything is great EXCEPT that nothing will write to my SD card. I can read everything on it but cannot download any new podcasts (Beyond Pod) or install any new audio books (Ambling Bookplayer).

    Is anyone else having this issue? Any thoughts?

    I have experienced the same issue when trying to save a wallpaper to my SD card, said something like it wasn't installed. I haven't really looked into it too much yet though.

    sounds like a faulty card. mount it to your pc and copy everything, try to format it.

    I am having the same problem with my SD Card. I can clearly see what I have stored there, but my Qik app insists that I need to have an SD card installed before I can use it. (??!!??)

    Can you tell me what "BeyondPod" is? It's unclear to me from your post - you removed it? Or you downloaded it from the Market?

    Beyond pod is a podcast manager - to make it work I removed out from my phone and then downloaded it from the market....

    I had the same problem with "Qik" the video streaming application. It would no longer recognize the SD card after the OTA. All other programs, photo albums etc had no issues.
    Mounting/unmounting, physically removing and putting it back in didn't help either, but after I uninstalled/re-installed Qik from the market it worked again like a charm.
