    Soooooo.....

    I've been using the same SD card since day one. I just installed Dolphin Browser's "Bookmarks to SD" add-on and minutes later the phone starting telling me my SD card was corrupt and needed to be reformatted.

    I have restarted the phone twice and pulled the card out/put it back in. No luck, still getting same message. Am I screwed? Is there any way around this?


    Thanks :thinking:

    Wanted to post this as a response to myself...JUST FOUND A FIX!

    So I connected my phone to my laptop and while I couldn't access the SD card from the phone, my laptop STILL recognized the drive and mounted it as usual. I had access to all my files.

    What I did next was to right-click the drive in windows explorer (also would work in My computer) and hit properties. I then went under the "Tools" Tab and ran a disk check. Windows said it found an error and had fixed it. I then ejected the hardware using the safe-removal tool and BAM! my SD card was great as far as my phone was concerned!

    Hope this may help someone in the future.

    Will it let you plug the phone in to your computer and mount? If so, you might can try running a disk check on the SD card, which might identify and fix the corruption.
