    Yes, thank-you Hicks for the Cardkeeper recommendation. It definitely saved the day. I知 still losing the SD card though but of course I知 now able to bring it back with cardkeeper. My guess regarding this problem is that it is a software problem and not hardware because when I always get the SD card back whenever I do a hard reset ie. clearing all installed software.

    But I知 damn curious to know exactly which software is the cause of the disappearing SD card phenomenon. It looks like I知 stuck to having Cardreader permanently unless I want to be caught without access to the SD card.

    Like many others here, I never have this problem, so it must be software (or more likely a software combination) that I don't use.

    My wife told me that it happened on her Treo680. I just eject & re-insert the sd and it came back. I don't really know why it happened but I didn't have to do restore.

    My SD card seemed to have become corrupted after only 2 months of use. I seem to be unable to reformat it; and it is not recogzized by the treo. It seems to have happened after a hard reset. I am wondering if I should have taken the SD card out of the treo before doing a hard reset. The SD card also appears unformated to a PC when used with a card reader.

    Have you tried formatting it with the PC?

    Now Im mostly dealing with the famous, Card not detected in slot for no rhyme or reason..
    It didn't seem to happen until using Fat32 format.. last night. Was using the SD factory format (Fat16)
    I think it has something to do with formating the SD in Fat32 then reset. /It writes something into a system file(I can't find it.)
    Also, I noticed that the screen flicker started to happen in CardKeeper. Like another app was trying to start and it wouldn't. Hard to explain this part...

    Luckly, I was making Resco backups ever few hours before it happend..
    If I use the previous backup, before this started.. the slot works..
    I will also do a difference listing between now and then apps..

    I will be sure and stop the USB drive manually in task manager before removing card..if this makes ANY difference.
    I hate having to use CardKeeper again. Especialy on my new 755p and since CardKeeper is outdated.


    Anyone, have any data points to add? Maybe we could nail this BUG.

    I installed Reset.prc to help with the lack of a reset button the the Treo755, but since I saw this post, removed it and reset.

    Still No joy

    We will get this figured out, since Palm or any 3rd party takes claim.
    Were on our own..

    Will try doing a hard reset and hotsync everything back.. Not sure if that will do it..

    I did also notice after the "Card Curse" that the Power Off sound loops now while off. Like it keeps trying to turn off..

    Anyone?

    I want to thank this thread for jinxing me!

    Last week I had the card disappear on me again, but I noticed something different than last time. I could hear the card removal tone when I popped the card out, but I wouldn't hear anything when I would put the card in.

    After beating myself over the head for a day I remembered a comment in this thread or another that was blaming Butler for the problem. Well, on a whim I removed Butler, and lo and behold the card came back. Then I thought, maybe if I put the beta the problem will have been fixed (assuming they knew about it)...then I don't know how many hours later, the card disappeared again, and again I removed Butler and it came back...argh...I'd love to troubleshoot further, but I'm going on vacation tomorrow so I won't be back until Monday. I'm pretty sure I'm running FAT32 on a 2 gig card, but I just don't understand where Butler interacts with the card that it could have that effect

    I'm feeling more and more certain about this.. and trouble shoot software for a living..

    I just removed the latest version of Butler and reset.
    Removed CardKeeper app.

    Card Came back.. after resets.

    As much as I LOVE Butler and worship Hobbysoft for his talent.
    I think Butler has problems with Fat32 format..
    That's why we are only seeing it sometimes.



    and will sacrifice using it over this pain in the A$$.

    Maybe there is a specific option in Butler that is culprit.

    I'm fairly sure that this isn't related to any specific app. I think it is just that when too many apps do stuff at reset time, that disrupts the os from mounting the SD card.

    I know you said that removing Butler fixed this for you, but I'll make a predicion:
    If you keep Butler and remove all your other apps - that will also fix it.
    Actually, you won't have to remove all of them, just some!

    cardkeeper seems to fix this for most people though. Some more discussion linked from the troubleshooting part of my site:

    Thanks for responding on this..
    Your right, this is something to consider and would love to, because Butler is top notch tool.
    It did happen when I reformatted to fat32 without any other changes..


    I would like to try this,
    Could you suggest 2-3 apps to remove?


    Thanks

    Removed Butler and had SD back.
    I just enabled BTtoggle and it lost the card again.

    What type of apps are those like Butler? is there a way to make a limit checker or something?

    THIS THREAD SAVED ME....

    I spent HOURS reinstalling apps from a hard reset due to a disappearing card last night (it disappeared last night and I spent virtually all day today "rebuilding").

    Then my 755P went into a soft reset (I accidentally caused it and know what I did to cause it), and when it rebooted...no card. I was seriously starting to get worked up, and crying wasn't out of the question.

    As a last ditch effort I decided to search these forums to see if anyone else experienced the same issue. I had searched a few days ago when I got the original card errors and only found one thread on that, so really didn't expect to find answers.

    I now have CardKeeper installed and my card is back!!

    Funny thing is, I always had to use something to keep my SD card mounted before, but I was trying to reduce a few apps that I was using and I don' t need it any more.

    The only difference is that every now and then when I'm putting the card back in, I have to pop it back out, then in again. But never at reset, or randomly, like I used to see with my 650.
