preparing sd card and spontaneous reboots


Dec 1, 2010, 12:22 PM
Bought two of these phones and both are having SD card issues. Exchanged one of the two and it does the same thing.

All 3 say "preparing SD card" several times a day (at least). I tried a 2gb sandisk sd card instead of the samsung 2gb card that comes with it - same thing. Apps installed to the sd card disappear from the apps menu then mysteriously reappear. Also shortcuts on the main screen change to a default icon then may change back when they feel like it.

Also getting spontaneous reboots - not sure if this is related to the sd card issue.

Will likely return these before the 30 day period is over. Sad

It is an SD card problem, not the phone.

Go to the SD menu, unmount the card, format, then re mount it. That should fix it!

Be sure to backup stuff on your computer first.

If that doesn't work, then get another SD card, even an old one, and do that same process with the new card.

I had the same problems and have not had it since I did this.

Thank you for the advice, I have had this problem ever since I got the phone. I ahve tried different SD cards and still have the same problem.
