Have put a 32gb card in my Wildfire, but it seems to delete some mp3 files after I have transferred them (root file is maintained but is emptied). Anyone had similar problems or can offer any solutions?

No. And I'm not sure I understand what you're saying.
You transfer mp3s to the new card and they aren't showing?
Have you 'refreshed' the library?

Not quite sure I'm understanding the problem. If you transfer a lot of songs at once AND have a slow microSD card (i.e. class 2) it can take a few minutes for your music library to actually show what you've transferred. Are the files "deleted" when you explore it with a file explorer like ASTRO?

When I transfer the mp3's they show up in the explorer on my computer as being on the card, but don't appear once 'music' app opened. Then after this they no longer appear in explorer either - they somehow get deleted in the process.

I would highly recommend checking you've got a genuine microSD card, there's sadly a lot of fakes out there and I hope this isn't the source of your problem but it's worth a check. Otherwise, you may be putting your songs in a weird directory. Make sure it's in a folder named 'Music'.

Try formatting the card

There were problems with a certain Froyo update (2.2.1) and the Desire HD where SD cards got fried and HTC were replacing cards; not sure if it was an issue with the Wildfire?

With me, it would regularly say "no files found" and stop playing at random, with PowerAMP and I'd have to reboot the phone (a real pain). Thankfully no problem with Gingerbread.

My card is 32GB and genuine. Thanks to HUKD, I use h2testw to test new memory cards before I use them.

Thanx all. Lots to go at. Have tried h2testw and think the cards is faulty and am taking up with supplier.
