    On a very regular basis my phone will suddenly tell me that the sd card has been removed. At that point nothing on the sd card is accessible. On occasion, I am able to just remove the card, re-insert the card, and the phone will recognize that the card is now there.

    However, there have been many times that the phone will not recognize the card and requires several attempts and a restart to get the phone to see the card.

    Very frustrating!!

    I have seen only a couple of posts about this issue, but none seem definitive on the issue. Is the a phone problem in general? Or a Optimus V issue?

    Anyone solved this problem?

    Thank you for the help.

    If your not rooted, and have never had the phone rooted, then try doing a factory reset.
    If that doesn't work it's a problem with the card reader and the phone needs to be taken back if it's still under the one year warranty.

    I too have been having the same problem, mine started back in may, as you are doing the same as i to correct the problem. Knock on wood, it hasn't been happining as often as it use to.

    I was told that the card reader might be going bad,or the card itself.

    I'm just doing what your doing until it gets bad enough and i'll try a new sd card first, see what happens!

    GOOD LUCK!

    Before doing a factory reset, if at all possible try another SD card. Could be just a bad card.

    Yep- what she said! SD cards are so very cheap, I'd drop a few bucks on a new one and copy your data over to it- give it a try & see if that doesn't take care of the issue.

    If you have not tried a reformat of the card that might help.

    Hey Guys, I think I found the solution. I came across a post on another forum that I disregarded. But turns out, it does the trick.

    Rubbing Alcohol.. take a q-tip, get a little rubbing alcohol on it, and clean the sdcard connectors. The rubbing alcohol will evaporate very quickly, leaving the connectors nice and clean.

    After getting feed up, I gave it a try. And I have not had any trouble in a Month. Ordinarly, I was having this problem at least once a day, if not more.. so an entire month without issue.. much smiles indeed.
