Default [Q] After 2.3.4 Update - SD Card Problem.

After the gingerbread update, the phone will not see that any sd card is installed (it did prior to the update). I've tried 2 different cards, mess with connection, press down the metal housing. Need some help please, thanks.

Have you tried Settings > Storage > Mount SD Card?
Phones: HTC Rezound, Samsung Galaxy Nexus (LTE/Verizon)
Tablet: Motorola Xoom running JB EOS

If I've helped you please use the "Thanks" button!

Well, the mount sd card is grey'd out, not selectable. Both cards can be accessed by the computer.

Default After 2.3.4 Update - SD Card Problem

Same here,

Had 2.2.2 and flashed the official 2.3.4 sbf and memory card is not recognized now.

Tried different cards as well and nothing. Mount and Format are grayed out.

Flashed it with SD and Sim out... If that might make a difference.

Maybe I should try flashing with the sd in?

Any suggestions?

I figured it out

Connect the phone (Mass Storage) with the SD in via USB and check if 2 partitions are recognized on the PC 1st (internal) and 2nd (SD-not accessible).

While connected to the PC take the cover off atrix and remove SD and slide it back it, if it doesn't see it instantly try again. The phone should say that it has detected the card. You might have to format it if it's not FAT32

No need to flash it again.

Hope this helps

Cheers

Wink This is what worked for me :)

I had the same issue, and could not find the fix anywhere. I tried every fix I found in any posts. But nothing worked. I could not format or mount my SD Card.
Then, I noticed the "internal sd storage" said "not available"...
... I thought hmmmmmm... so I formatted it.
And after that, I could format the External SD Card and mount it...
Hope this helps somebody else.
Apparently, if it fails to mount the internal storage, it will fail to mount the external as well...

Cheers!
