    I mistakenly hit the unmount SD card. Now when I try to set wallpapers or just go into my albums to view my camera pics, it says SD card unmounted. Not quite sure how to reset that or to get to the way it was. Any help? Thanks.

    I believe you remove the card and put it back in. Turn the phone off first.

    You should be able to reset it by going into the notification panel.

    No need to power the unit down (see pg. 54 of the manual) - just pop it out and back in.

    If you do power it down, there's no need to pop it out and re-insert it, as it gets mounted automatically on every boot (if it is there).

    Thanks, I just learned something new - I thought that only applied to whether or not the SD card was made available for mounting by a PC over the USB... but apparently it re-mounts the SD card in Android, too.

    Thanks for the input. I just turned the phone off and removed the card and replaced it. Worked fine.

    with full battery power on my droid EVO 'sd card dismounted' and no booting or removing make this error go away; and PC can not see the card; PC does see other sd cards.

    Probably wasn't necessary to bump this thread, since it is about 1 and a half years old.

    Anyway, I'm probably going to say the memory card is shot. Especially if your PC can't see it either. Not much you can do about it but buy a new one.
