Possible Duplicate:
“SD card is damaged - You may have to reformat.” How do I fix this problem?

I made my SD card available as mass storage, copied one file from the SD card, unmounted the card from OSX (inside OSX) and then .. I am not 100% if I unmounted the card in mobile or it was already damaged at this point.

I tried to reboot the phone but it doesn't help. Removed the card, put back and turned on again. Didn't help either.

Do I have to reformat the card and lose all data on it?


HTC Desire + CM 7 RC2 + Kingston 16GB Type 4

If you have a card reader, try fsck-ing it. I'm not sure if it is possible do an fsck through Android, though if you don't have a card reader, you might want to try that.

You can try to recover files before you format it, but yes you will have to format it. See this question for various methods of SD card recovery: Data Recovery - How to Restore Deleted / Formatted Files on HD Micro SD Card
