Ok my phone is hiuawei ascend stock 2.1 i used video off youtube to update phone to cyanogemod 2.3.5 everything worked out ok except now says my sd card damaged, mount sd card when my card is already in place plus says sd card needs to be mounted to use rom manager so please inform me how to get my newly upgraded phone to read my sd card thank you
 
Welcome to ANDROID FORUMS, DAMIEN64.

Try this:

Go to SETTINGS > STORAGE.
If it still says MOUNT SD CARD, tap on that until it reads UNMOUNT SD CARD.

If it reads UNMOUNT SD CARD, then that means the card is actually in & mounted, ready for the phone to utilize the SD CARD contents.

My apologies if this seems a bit simplistic. Just wanna cover all the basics.

If this didn't solve the problem, please provide feedback w/as much detailed information as possible.

Once again, WELCOME TO THE ASCENDASYLUM! :)

One possible cause of your SD CARD problems that I overlooked could be that the SD CARD slot is fried/inoperative.

A good friend of mine had to turn in her ASCEND for this SD CARD problem.
I had totally forgot about it,was long, long, long ago, in SMARTPHONE YEARS at least. Just by chance the topic came up in conversation. Then the A-HA moment hit me.
Perhaps you're still under the 1 YR. manufacturers warranty on defects & craftsmanship.
