MyTouch 3G 1.2 Plagued with SD Card Problems. Fix Available!

Saturday 12th of June 2010 /
For those of you getting frustrated by the SD card issues on the newer MyTouch 3G version 1.2, it is a known issue and T-Mobile / HTC are replacing the faulty SD cards.  Apparently, it stops you using your Camera.  For those of you who didn’t know about the issue, here’s some background information from user JSoup:2 days later I proceeded to take a picture, while the camera display was there, I had a message displaying across the screen: “Please Insert an SD card before using the camera”. I checked Settings/SD card & phone storage to see the total space at 7.40gb so it was reading the SD card. I unmounted, then mounted to make sure that it was installed properly and it was. After going back and forth between the home screen, gallery, and camera, I was not able to take a picture, nor use any data from the SD card (ie: wallpaper, pictures, videos, music). I called 611 and they said I needed a “refresh” so they instructed me to turn my phone off, then turn it back on after about 10 seconds. Everything worked after that.2 days later, it happened

Please insert sd card before using camera

Tuesday 24th of January 2012 /
Hello. I've run into a problem, a frustrating one at that. So about a few weeks ago I tried to take a picture, it said "Please insert an SD card before using the camera" Well I had one in there, I tried restarting the phone, that fixed it temporarily. Then it happened again, I figured I would just copy the data from the card and reformat it, I plug it into my computer in a micro sd to usb thing. It detected it maybe one out of five times, I would try to copy everything over to my computer, it would begin the transfer and a few seconds in it would stop working and the card was no longer recognized. I'm pissed. I find another sd card, start using that, well today the same thing happened, and the same thing with my computer, detects for only a few seconds until I try a data transfer. Any idea of what the problem may be?Could it possibly have to do with me pulling my battery out all the time? I don't think it would, but I listen to music and podcasts through my work day, I listen to the radio for the first 4 hours and my battery dies in that time so I have a spare at work, woul

Insert Sd card camera - unable to create files on sd card

Sunday 19th of August 2012 /
Help! I have a Sprint Samsung Galaxy S2 and an having problems with my sd card. When I set my camera to store photos on my sd card, it says "please insert sd card before using camera". Also, when I go into my file manager and try to make a new folder on my sd card, it says "creation failed". My sd card is in the slot, and it lets me mount and unmount it (from storage in settings), but it won't let me edit it out move anything to it. It seems like its reading it from the settings, but not letting me use it. Any solutions to this? I tried clicking format sd card from settings, but no luck. : / Would love to move my photos to the sd card since they've almost taken up all the internal sd card space. Thanks!Sent from my SPH-D710 using

Camera won't take pictures without an SD card

Wednesday 13th of July 2011 /
Hi, I'm trying to help a friend get more out of his Droid X. I personally own a Nexus S so I'm not familiar at all with this phone. Any help would be very much appreciated. The problem is he doesn't have an SD card. When he tries to take pictures with the phone it says "Please insert SD card before using the camera." I'm assuming this is because the camera directs pics taken to be stored to the SD card. So is there anyway to save the pictures directly to the hard drive? Essentially what we're looking for is a way to take pictures without having to buy an SD card.
