    Yes, I have a droid Triumph and I recently purchased a new sd card with more memory and allready downloaded all my stuff from my previous one on to that. My card seams to work okay and my device says it has all the memory on it but there is a pop up that keeps coming up that says in quote Sdcard full, flag is set. Please delete some to resume or download manually. Like my device still thinks the old card is still in. That pop up keeps coming up and it is starting to get really annoying. If you have any suggestions on how to prevent that pop up from coming up let me know as soon as you can. Thank you.

    Note that the metal part is not part of the SD card. It’s a pocket to insert the tip of the card only and can not be removed !

    I just had the same problem and fixed it. It turned out that my mini SD card was dislodged. What you need to do is to follow the guide above and open the back of your phone. Once you locate your SD card, just snap it back into its socket. Problem solved! Good luck!
