Question about HTC Touch P3450 Smartphone
I have the Sprint PCS CDMA Touch.
Only recently did this happen. I have a 2gb Patriot Mini-SD card. One day I noticed that all of my folders and files on the card were gone and all that was left were some folders with gibberish names. Furthermore, any programs and program links relating to software installed to the card were not working. My backup file wasn't touched so I did a quick restore and all was fine. This happened a second time recently and now the backup file is gone (learned my lesson: put a copy of the backup on my PC as well) with the same "gibberish" folders and files in place. Later in the evening I downloaded Picsel Browser directly to the card and later went to install it, only to find that everything that had disappeared and re-appeared (the "gibberish folders and files remained-one even has a date of 9/27/95!). So I felt all was well. The next morning I noticed that everything was gone again, except for the IE temporary items, WMDRM, cookies, history folders. What's really weird is I would check in on the card and notice duplicates of these folders (not the "gibberish" ones) and immediately later the duplicates are gone. I've tried a few different things to no avail, including I've even made sure that my mail attachments and IE temporary files are saved to the device and not on the card. I removed the IE temporary files folder on the card, as well. I've done resets, removing and putting back in the card, reformatting the card and putting my stuff back in, etc. Same results.
I believe all of my original folders and files are STILL on the card but something is causing issues with it being read like it's supposed to be. I use both the native file explorer as well as Total Commander and ActiveSync/Windows XP shell explorer to look in on the card.
Nothing on the device itself is affected. I've posted this problem on a couple of PPC phone forums but haven't seen much of anything in the way of potential solutions. One person suggested that it's a WRITE problem. I haven't added much of anything lately. The only thing I noticed that the problem occurred after I started playing with Windows Live Mobile (admittedly, while the battery was in low level warning status). I did remove the WLM cache folder from the card and set WLM to place its cache on the device, but to no avail. This is either a power-to-the-card-slot problem or a read/write issue.
I had the same thing happen after downloading windows live.

Same problem here with an Ativa 2G card and San Disk 4G. Not using Win Live but did try Picsel browser. Virus?
