Question [Q] "Damaged SD Card" on HD2 Android NAND ROM

Hi to all
Im having a small problem on my HD2 upon first time boot up from being flashed to CMYLXGO's Stock Desire HD(2).
On the task bar its showing a SD card with a question mark and when i slide the task bar down it says "Damaged SD Card" and that i need to format it, I tried formating it from the phone it self but no luck

Have you tried another SD card yet? Is this your first ROM? Have you put that SD card in another phone, or if not available, an SD card reader? That could help give you some indication as to the state of the card, although I wouldn't rely on that alone to test.

I have toyed around with multiple ROMs on my HD2 and never had an SD card problem, although in the past I have had a card die when doing some modification on my G1. Also, if you are still using the 16gb card that's packaged with the TMOUS HD2, it may be a decent idea to consider replacing it anyway. It's only a class 2 card, and while that may suffice for many operations, it really suffers when you're trying to use an app like QQPlayer to apply software decoding to video.

Okay I found a solution to the problem, I tried using the SD card reader, and it was recognized on the computer, I could read and write from and to the SD card, and this is my fourth to fifth ROM I have tested on the HD2, I been trying to find the best ROM there is for it , and well I just grabbed another SD card that was lying around and.. boom it works im such a noob haha, I didnt think about it until you suggested it, but its still a class 2 SD card. Many thanks

I just had this similar problem with my 16 GB Class 2 microsd Card. Started happening once I created SWAP and EXT2... or 3... (can't remember) on the card for use in Android App2SD. What I did is I formated it in Windows and made sure Allocation size was set to default. Seems to have fixed my issue

The firs step is to download SD Formatter and save the file on your desktop.

Once done, eject MicroSD card from your Android phone and use a MMC card reader to connect it to the computer. You SD card will now be mounted as a flash drive.
Now make a backup of your SD card before proceeding further. You can either copy all folders and file on your SD card and move them to a hard disk folder or use some 3rd party application.
Now launch SD Formatter and click on “Options”.
In options, set Format Type Full (Erase On) and keep Format Size Adjustment OFF. Now press OK to proceed.
After this click on Format and let the application do the rest for you. Please note that Memory Cards with higher capacity will take more time and vice versa. Do not remove your SD card while formatting is taking place because this can permanently damage it.
Once the formatting is complete and you get the success notification, remove SD from MMC reader.
Now insert the card in your phone’s MicroSD slot and wait for damaged SD Card notification in the notification bar again.
Once it is there, simply tap on notification and press format.
Now wait for a minute or two, launch Settings > SD and Phone Storage > and you will be able to see your memory card’s details.
There you have it! You won’t have damaged SD card notification any more and your Memory Card will behave as it should.
