    have you recently done s-off,or some other procedure that may have damaged it? maybe flashed a new rom thats not reading it?

    if its just all of a sudden stopped working,that is strange. you might try some different roms and see if the prollem persists

    When I restarted this morning a 5am ext_SD loaded and it has been working fine all day....we will see if it now sticks. It was kind of acting like something was failing to start during startup...maybe?

    Very possible.

    If it happens again, I would try a 60 second battery pull.

    Well finally just started over....Wiped and re-flashed phone, re-rooted and restored Apps. Then copied and reformatted SD Card, copied back to card ......everything is fine so far. I feel pretty good about the results...I can now mount and remount the SD Card in Settings/Storage. When it was acting up if I unmounted the SD Card, i could not remount it. Everything would "gray Out" under External. We'll see how it goes tomorrow. [​IMG]
