Default SD card blank or has unsupported filesystem fix

4 posts about this and i think i found a way to fix this with windows. it did this to me and worked so thought id share so people dont format the sd card and lose all data.

i put the sd card from my sensation 4g into my computers card reader. in windows 7 i went to start > rightclick "computer" and click manage. i then clicked on "Disk Management" to see what type of condition the sd card was in. it said it was a RAW disk. i started to think and then decided to try a chkdsk to see if it fixes it. to do that i just clicked START > RUN (or START > type in RUN and click the run shortcut) and type in CMD in the box then click ok. now in the command prompt type in CHKDSK X: /R then press the enter key (NOTE: X represents the drive letter). wait for it to do its thing and it should fix this problem.

i am not sure if it will fix it for all cases but atleast it worked for me.

I had this problem only after installing Swift Key X.

Uninstalled Swift Key X , Unchecked fast boot in power options
Powered down phone removed battery for 20 seconds put battery back in
turn on was fixed

If happens again i will try ur method in an attempt to confirm though :P

If you have a rooted phone and your sd is readable by your computer there is no need to format it. Just go to recovery and mount/sdcard.

This problem seems to be a flaw although.

I think the problem is caused by root access to the sd card or kernel compatibility.
