    Has this happened to anyone?
    I have Flickie Wallpapers and went to load it. Screen went black and froze.Had to open the phone, remove the battery and reboot. When I came back, I got a message that my SD card is damaged.
    geez...
    Maybe there is an app that can check and possibly repair the card?

    Thanks for any help.

    Just in case, I'd try another reboot before doing anything else.

    I've never tried this with the card in my phone, but with the SD cards in PalmOS devices, you can often fix them with the Windows error check utility (right click on drive letter/Properties/Tools). I can't see why it wouldn't work as well here, if you've got a card reader or appropiate adapter for it - someone please correct me if I'm wrong. Or I suppose you could try it via the cable with the card in the phone (just make sure you're working on the card and not the phone memory! Personally, I'd take the thing out to make sure Murphy's Law didn't come into play). And don't defragment the card - that will reduce its lifespan because of the large number of write operations involved.
