I did all this just for fun and its still the same! The phone says there are no sd cards inserted!
The computer still will not recognize it either!

I flashed the r10 rom and did a factory restore while still in recovery. No problems since then.

Sent from my GT-I9000 using XDA App

There is a separate SD fix, but that was included with the new rom apparently. I have seen posts that those who pushed that fix had it work.

this only happens when you are using 2.2 right?

I did get it rebooted into clockwork and wiped pretty much everything but the sdcard...did not do any good.. also tried moutning the sd card from clockwork with 2.2 installed...the sdcards did show up on the computer, but when clicking on them it said "Please insert a disk into this drive"

When I flash a 2.1 ROM back to the phone, it behaves perfectly and reads both SD cards normally. Any one else have this problem or know of a fix?
i have researched this for 3 days straight and have found a solution, their is no fix

1.) if you remove your sd card and reboot the phone with it not in there, your internal memory will mount just fine.
2.) so that made me think it was something wrong with my external card, so i went and bought another one, samsung branded, 8 gig class2 card, and what do you know, it mounted just fine.
3.) i did found out that when i flashed back to 2.1 it would see my old sd card, but when i upgraded to 2.2 it wont.

its like 2.2 does not like certain branded sd cards, the one that wouldnt work on 2.2 was made by A-Data

Interesting.. Thank you! I am rebooting without the sdcard now and sure enough the internal card is showing upQ@

Mine is an 8gb class 6 card.. not sure what brand... I am going to format the sd card and see if that helps!
