    So I'm running the BLACKSOURC3 Personal ROM by DroidTheory. And I wanted to clean off my SD card so I went into the Storage options and told it to wipe everything but when I was through with the process I got his error. I looked at some other threads but none of them appeared to have actually deleted their data, it was more that it happened at random. The only option I have is to format it which I press and nothing happens or to mount the SD card which won't actually mount. I've already tried taking the SD card out multiple times so I'm not sure what to do now.. Any ideas?

    EDIT: I've also tried using SD formatter but it can't find my SD card.

    Try formating the SD with your computer. You will want to format in FAT

    You could also boot into recovery and try to format in there but be sure to do a backup of your rom after you format in recovery

    So in order to format it on the computer I need an adapter right?
    And the formatting in Recovery, is that the entire phone or is there an option for the card?

    That is what my card was telling me as well. I was unable to format through recovery. There's a thread in the lounge/computer section titled "oh crap" that has some programs in there that might help too.

    If you format the card in recovery it would just be the card, I would think that is worth a try. You would need an adapter to get the card to be read by the computer...unless your computer has a microSD slot
