    If anyone is able to offer guidance on how to resolve this I'd very much appreciate it.

    I've had my Desire rooted with Cyanogenmod 7 for about six months. Suddenly yesterday it got stuck in bootloop. When I load 4ext it says it can't mount SD card. I have tried USB unbrick option in 4ext and this didn't solve it.

    I would like to try to restore my phone with a nandroid backup that I have on my computer, but without being able to mount the SD card I'm not sure how to proceed.

    So I have done a factory reset using 4ext, and the phone is now booting and running fine. However I am getting the message that my SD card is damaged.

    I have tried formatting the SD card but no change. I have another one that I believe is at work, so I will try this on Monday. It'll be a shame if the SD card is damaged, because it is relatively new.

    At least I have a working phone for the weekend. And I'm so glad I have my photos set up to sync automatically to dropbox, because that's really the only thing on my SC card I would want to save.

    Yeah, regular backups are important, however they are done.

    Good luck :)

    I've had a number of sd card problems on my desire & my wife's SGS3 that I stood relying on them long ago. I switched from an ext partition to a custom hboot on my desire about 2 Years ago. Indeed my one X+ doesn't even have an sd slot.

    something like this happened to me this week. All I did was delete dalvik cash and I was fine.
