Droid X has been in use for 1 week now. Have a possible issue with the SD card. Yesterday I received a message on the upper left corner of the home screen that read "SD card removed" I proceeded to restart the phone but the message remained. I then unmounted the SD card, turned phone off, took out the battery and SD card, and restarted the phone, no message this time around with the SD card uninstalled. Well, I reinstalled it and attempted to format it, but that option is ghosted out because I got the same message again "SD card removed". Has anyone experienced this? Any suggestions?
I would try another SD card. If the device reads it then you know you have a bad memory card and it will need to be replaced. If the device will not read a new SD card then you will know that it is an issue with the device. If a memory card reader or your computer can't read the card unfortunately you will lose your information.
I have had the X for a little over a week now and am having the same issue. I don't want to re-format the card until I get home and make sure all my music and pic's are still on there. No the only problem I am having and have already called customer care to have a new phone sent to me. My screen goes black at random times and my touch screen never works without having to lock it at the top and un locking it over and over again for it to work.. I am starting to regret my decision..... I miss my Blackberry............!!
I also had that problem with my Droid X straight out of the box. Bought it at Walmart on my lunch hour and didn't notice the warning at the top of the screen until I got back to work. It said missing SD card... then it said corrupt SD card and asked me if I wanted to format it. I took out the battery and reinstalled the card. I figured the person who activated my phone at Walmart messed with it when she put the battery in it. But a week and one day later it did the same thing, again. I had to reseat the card. And that's a pain when it's in a case. I think there's more to the story than a bad SD card...
I had the same problem with my EnV Touch. It was a defective SD port in the phone. The card was fine. The port where you put the card in the phone was bad. Check the same for your phone. If the problem is intermittent, then the connection is loose, it connects some times and not at others. In any case, the phone hardware is the problem, not the card. Your data on the card should be safe.
Your screen goes black when the automatic screen lock comes on when the back light times out. Turn off the automatic screen lock if you are tired of always unlocking the screen all the time, however, remember to lock it when you put the phone down or your phone will be doing strange things when you put it in your case.
I am having the same problem. I powered up the phone and got the "NO SD CARD" message, went to the VZ store, they checked out the card and said it was bad (lost all my files and pics). They called Motorola for me, Motorola said they were out of stock for the 16gb SD card and they didn't know when new ones would be in. After fighting with Motorola customer service for two hours they sent me a 2gb SD card to shut me up. They told me they would overnight the SD card, it came 4 days later ( I guess the nights are very long in Motorola land) That was 2 weeks ago, today I got another response telling me they still don't have a time frame when the cards will be in, they told me to "check from time to time", Motorola customer service is VERY, VERY, POOR. They don't care about the consumer. I regret getting this phone and my only message to anyone interested is AVOID THE DROID!!!!!!!!!
