    I pulled my SD card out of the captivate with out unmounting it a land now it reads it as damaged and wants me to format it in order to use it. Any fixes without losing all my files?

    A lot of times in this situation some of your data has become corrupted due possibly still being in use as you pulled it (even if it didn't seem like any of it was in use to you). As far as a fix, I've never found anything that works.

    I also keep on having the problem with a damaged SD card, so far I am unable to use this card.. Could this because I bought it on ebay from China???

    Anyone with a bad SD card should first try to format it in Panasonic SD Formatter. Google it, and download it. It formats the cards to the true SD specifications that every device recognizes. Windows, Cameras, and Phones sometimes don't follow these standards, and one device wil see the card, while another will complain.
