    Can't take pictures "please insert sd card"

    Ive had the phone for a week and love it, except that I haven't been able to take pictures. When I open the camera I get a message that says "please insert an sd card before using the camera"

    Well I have an sd card in the phone and I can even play music off of it. I can also view the contents of the sd card using Astro file manager.

    I re inserting the sd card and doing a hard restart as well. No luck.

    Any thoughts?

    You could try saving off all the songs and docs and stuff on your SD card to your PC temporarily. And then reformatting the SD card and restoring it all back.

    Good luck.

    I would definitely agree with the above poster that you need to reformat your card as a first troubleshooting step.

    I have 9 lockerz invites if interested PM me.
