SD Card problems

    Alright, this is my 2nd post after a reply, but officially this is why I joined the forum, to post this thread.

    I've had my Desire HD for a couple of months now, very happy with this beast of a phone. I'm on Vodafone UK if that makes any difference (no insurance though, I'm pre-emptively kicking myself, perhaps foolishly).

    So i've had no issues with the phone until now. Today, I noticed after getting back home that none of the apps that were on my SD card worked. Earlier in the day, the phone had 'died', it stopped working as I was using the application 'ColorNote'. I didn't think much of it, after a few seconds it rebooted and I didn't take note whether the SD card was being recognized or not. Just now, when I went to look at the gallery for my pictures, I get the following message: "Please insert an SD card". I was puzzled, and turned off the phone, removed the battery (just in case) and the SD card, and reinserted both of them carefully. Nothing changed, the SD card was still unrecognized.

    I wonder if this is a common problem, if this is a problem with my phone, or with the SD card? I have no idea how this could have happened. If it helps at all, I had the phone plugged in via USB to my laptop all night charging (in Charge Only mode).

    If the SD card is dead, will I get a replacement from HTC?

    Thanks in advance.

    I've had problems with my SD card too. Sometimes the phone acts like I've taken out the SD Card (even though I haven't). Shutting down the phone and taking the card out and then putting it back in again seems to fix it (for me at least). Still, it's a hassle and if you find a solution I'd love to hear it!

    I've just had the exact same thing happen to me. Phone was perfectly happy last night, and i put it charging,...but when i woke up this morning it was complaining about unexpectedly losing the sd card...and now it won't recognise it.

    I haven't lost any important data, but its slightly worrying. OK i could go and
    buy a new card, or chase HTC, but if its going to happen again it'll get quite

    (I have to say that i think the DHD is probably the worst built phone i've
    ever come across. I have to hold the SIM card in with sellotape, as otherwise
    that disconnects randomly)
