    Hi everyone,

    I've had the evo since day 1. On the first day, HTC released a firmware update that included a fix for SD card corruption. I updated the firmware, then swapped out the 8gb card with a 16gb sandisk card I purchased at radio shack. It worked great until today. I shut off the phone, then turned it back on several minutes later. Once the phone reboots, I got a SD card damaged message at the top. I turned off the phone, reseated the microsd card, then turned it back on. Unfortunately, no matter how many times I have turned the phone on and off it still states that the SD card is damaged.

    I've never rooted the phone, never dropped it, and its been great until today. I've seen this problem before with HTC made windows smart phones and I can't believe they can't get this right. I normally don't get too pissed out these kind of things, but this time I am. I'm on vacation and took lots of photos and I'm worried they're lost. I won't know until I get home. In the mean time, any suggestions? I will be calling HTC at some point today, but I'm sure they will be as much help as the firmware update that was suppose to fix this major issue.

    Are you having the same issue? What's the real fix?

    Thanks,

    GP

    Did you format the 16gb when you installed it?

    Always format a new memory card!

    If you can get the pics to show up on your computer and save them. Then put it back in and see if you can format it. It will likely have no further issues from there!
