HOW TO FIX Disappearing SD Cards!
Ever since I upgraded to the new AKU3.3 Cingular roms, I've been having an issue where my 2GB Sandisk MicroSD Card will just 'disappear'. It can take one of two different forms when it disappears:
1) The card looks like it's simply not there. The OS creates another directory on the device itself called "Storage Card". Ejecting the card and reinserting it makes it visible to the device again, but, then the card itself is called, "Storage Card2", with the obvious issues of all links being broken until I manually rename everything to be what it should be.
2) The card is there, and I can navigate the directories, but, there is nothing IN the directores. Removing and re-inserting fixes this, and all my info is there again.
This is getting REALLY annoying, and only happened since the upgrade to the new Cingular rom. Anyone have any ideas of what is causing the problem, and/or how to fix it?
After working at the issue for a while, here is the end results:
Do the following reg. hack (numbers are in DECIMAL! hex equiv. is 0x2004):
"PNPUnloadDelay" = dword:8196
"PNPWaitIODelay" = dword:8196
Additionally, the Kingston 1GB MicroSD Card is *much* better (Japanese made) than the SanDisk or even the Crucial
I had SEVERE issues with the card going missing; changing to the Kingston SD and applying the above fixes made the issue GO AWAY!
