Operating System: Android 2.2 Device: HTC MyTouch 3G Slide SD Card: Micro SD 8GB Sandisk card that is less than 1 year old
Background: This feature formatted my working SD Card w/ all my pictures on it after i took it out and put it back into the same phone. I didn't add or delete any data from the device when i took it out... I checked the sd card on the computer and it only had 2mb of cache files on it while before it had 6gb of music and photos. I already tried mounting and unmounting the card. That doesn't help. The phone has recently been factory restored.
Questions: 1) Why is Android / MyTouch3G Slide formatting my sd card?
2) How do I know if it's an sd card problem or a phone problem?
3) How do I get the card to work w/ the pictures and mp3s on there?
I'm thinking maybe I should prepare the card for android somehow- with a sd card formatter
Update: I recovered the files w Easeus Data Recovery, put them back on the card, and it formatted the files again. I'm thinking I should format my card for android 2.2 or mytouch3g so it accepts the pictures or put the card in while the phone is off to prevent this from happening again?
