    Hello

    i just got this HTC desire for 2 months now, never had problems untill today

    the following happend :
    I made some pictures , first they were in the gallery, but some turned out to be unviewable (with the ? symbol) So i turned off the phone and back on, and all the new pictures we're gone...

    i made some new ones.. they showed up and in the gallery, we're all viewable, turned of the phone, back on.. and GONE

    so this time i tried hooking up the phone to the Pc with the usb cable,
    and just deleted the whole DCIM/100MEDIA directory..

    phone off / phone on... and there they we're all again! all the pictures i just deleted!! STRANGE

    but even more strange....

    i hooked the desire back on the pc.. did a format SD card on it (was fully formatted fat32 by windows (card showed up empty in This Computer)

    back to the desire...

    ALL THE PICTURES were back again!

    ...

    tried formatting with PANASONIC SDFORMATTER using full erase..

    all pictures showed up again

    ..

    tried formatting by the desire itself...
    no use...

    ..

    tried deleting using ASTRO ..
    no use..


    and any new pictures i make are simply not saved... gone after a power off/on

    and did i say i already reverted back to factory settings?

    HELP HELP HELP!
    i'm out of options here!

    Something must be wrong with the card, it clearly wasn't formatted. Do you have another you can swap it for to confirm?

    Most likely a defect sd card then i tried another card ,which i formatted on pc, put in the desire and no pictures came up, made one,
    telephone off/on ...

    and the picture was still there...

    so most likely a defect SD card... gonna head to the shop today for a new one because it is still in warranty
