    Right then, I have a (probably simple) question to ask :)

    My HTC Desire keeps crashing etc. and now it has come up "SD Card Damaged Reformat".

    When I reformat the card, I will loose all my data (I know that much).

    But, if I copy all the data off my SD Card onto my PC first (which I am doing now). Once I have reformatted my SD Card, can I simply copy the files from the PC back onto the SD Card?

    Thank you :)

    Sure. I've done it plenty of time when I've partitioned my SD card for apps2SD (which requires a reformat). I only copy certain things back like music and videos and such because copying everything back to a 16 GB card is time consuming.
