Default Getting error while opening Video Player - No SD card present

hi...

as soon as i started SMP 5.0, i went to the defualt video player as i wanted to see a vid strangely, it gave me the error that sd card not present...although i've installed no sd-card till now. (got this error like 3 times when i tried to run the app).

then i saw a notification on top left "media scanning" something like that, when it said complete, then i ran the app again and i could see the list of vidz.


is it normal that the player scans the media list everytime on start?

Yes, the media scanner normally runs at every start-up or reboot. I have also noticed it running after moving a large file or folder on to the device.

Yes, the player needs to do a startup scan on EVERY reboot. All Android devices do this,...

Now, FYI, you should have started one "Questions about the SGP 5.0" thread, instead of a new thread every time you have a simple question. It's like spamming the forums, and it's considered bad forum etiquette every time you do it. Just sayin' is all,...

There was a discussion thread about card speeds a while back but it contains some good information about memory card options in general so you might want to give that a read - http://anythingbutipod.com/forum/showthread.php?t=67172.

The consensus was you don't need more than a Class 4 card. In my experience, you can reap some benefits from going higher but only if you spend a lot of time copying large [e.g. 100MB+] files from your computer to your SGP. The manufacturer isn't terribly important but read customer reviews whenever possible.
