    My sdcard has been taking awfully long to mount to USB. It used to be almost instantaneous like your average USB thumbdrive or external hard disk. Im on a non-rooted nexus one running froyo. Any suggestions?

    Ive got an 8GB sdcard as well. And ive only used up about 2GB on it, so i dont think its got anything to do with the memory. :\

    I checked for errors with windows but they said its fine. Im doing a full format on the card with windows right now. I tried to unmount the sdcard via the phone but it just kept saying unmounting sdcard and it just stays that way. Didnt work even after i quick formatted the card on windows. Something isnt right here...

    I use Panasonic SDformatter v2.0.0.3(might not be the latest) to do my formatting of problematic devices, its a free app and very handy to have at your disposal, much better than windows!
