    Question Micro SD external card Q.

    I already ruined one card today, and want to know if I need to do anything before using the card. Do I need to format it or need to delete the folder on the card named "LOST.DIR"? Thank you!

    As far as i know you just install the card into the phone - thats all i've ever done with my micro sds, I took my 2gb card out of my Captivate and put in right into my Atrix - no issues.


    If you need help, and I appear to be offline, shoot me a msg on Gtalk, or PM me and I'll respond as soon as I possibly can!!

    I didn't; I went from a samsung eternity>samsung solstice>motorola atrix all with the SAME 8 GB micro sd card. So I still have all my music and pictures from every phone. I was so happy when the SD card could transfer from a "feature phone" to a motorola android!

    Hopefully the same applies for you!

    I didn't delete anything off my SD card either when moving it over from my OG Droid to the Atrix. All my music, videos, and pictures from the old phone are available as well.

    Yes, you can, but.... That folder holds info that might have been corrupt by improperly closing something or not unmounting your mass storage correctly. It's kinda like a Recycle Bin that your system can use to try to restore with. If you delete it, though, anything contained in it will be unrecoverable if needed. Android will just great another one next time you reboot, though.

    I formatted my 16 GB card before installing and the phone did the rest.
