    Hi,

    A friend got a Desire yesterday and is having a rather odd problem with it - she put the power control widget on one of the screens, set the news feed to the BBC, and then downloaded a couple of apps (angry birds etc). When she downloaded these the powercontrol widget disappeared and the news feed 'unset' itself from the BBC.

    Does anyone have any ideas why this is happening or how to stop it?

    Thanks
    Bettie :)

    I've had something similar when widgets are installed on the SD Card. My SD Card seems to have a problem when it is being used heavily - games / music etc.

    The widgets disappear or show a message saying widget cannot be loaded.

    Fixed for me as I have a widget ( installed using onboard memory ) to refresh the SD Card.

    When I get round to it I plan to get a Class 6 card which hopefully will resolve it.

    Thanks Hippo, do you have any idea how to work out if the widgets are on the memory card or the phone?

    The widgets we're using are already on the phone, not downloaded, so i suspect they would be on the phone?

    The plot thickens - I've just been told that Angry Birds has now dissapeared off the phone!
