    Hey guys.
    So I have a HTC wildfire, its amazing - I love it.
    But the thing is, I put an 8GB SD card in it as the 2GB one wasnt big enough for me. I'm not sure why, but every time I place the card in the slot it works for about 5 mins and then it just unmounts itself :s
    I have pulled it out a few times without unmounting manually ... if that has anything to do with it.

    Is there anything I can do to try and stop this from happening?

    Thanks guys.

    I've got this problem as well. It's a real pain as it always seems to happen when I want to take a picture or download a podcast. It is getting worse. Used to happen once a day, now it's every 5 minutes whether I'm using the phone or not.
    Hope we can get a fix.
    Also at the recommendation of the guy at the vodafone shop I bought a new card - you guessed it, same problem.

    Ok unmount your sd card and remove it from your device
    Then turn on your device and wait for it to completely turn off. Then remove your battery and wait lets say 5 mins max, then put back your sd card first then replace your battery then turn on your device
