I sorta planned to plug my phone in to charge while I slept, but I decided to wait. I let it charge to about 80% and tried to give the transfer another go.
Fortunately, the “SD Card is damaged” warning was gone, and I was actually able to access the SD card from my PC normally without booting to recovery mode. This means that I can let the transfer take place and the phone will maintain a steady charge. We’re on the right path.
I think I’ll go to bed now, though. I’m getting sleepy.
On a quick side note, I’m going to start tracking my weight each day. I’ve got an app on my phone that makes it easy to keep track. I’m not gonna say how much I weigh now, but I will say that when I weighed myself several weeks ago, I was the heaviest I’ve ever been, and now I am 8 pounds less than that. HOWEVER, since I just started keeping track today (well, yesterday technically), I’m not gonna count those 8 pounds.
So my sister texted me to tell me about this game I should try for Droid. I thought I’d try it so I connected my phone to my PC via USB so I could put the game on it that way. After copying the file, I disconnected the cable and something went wrong. Something happened that has not happened to me before.
I saw a new icon in the notification bar of my Droid. When I investigated, I found it said “SD card is damaged. You may need to reformat.” This was not good news.
I looked for solutions online, and most people were saying to transfer the contents of the card to the computer for backup and then reformat the card. Well, I couldn’t seem to do that. When I connect the phone to the PC via USB and try to turn on USB storage to access the card, it doesn’t work. I tried removing the card and using a card reader, but the computer never saw it. None of this was okay.
I booted the phone into recovery mode to see if there was anything there I could do. I noticed an option called “Mount USB Mass Storage”. I chose that, and immediately the files all popped up on my PC. Without delay, I quickly used Unstoppable Copier to back up all the contents of the SD card to my computer. I then reformatted the card, and I am now putting the contents back onto the card.
Copying the files back on seems to be taking much, much longer. Might take a couple of hours. Guess I could go watch a movie or something. Just can’t use my phone until it’s all done.
I was supposed to call James. It will have to wait, I guess :(
