    My sd card broke. All the apps that where installed appeared grey and i removed them from my phone. I am trying to reinstall bing translate and i keep getting the message to reinsert the sd card to update the app in the store. The app doesn't show in the list of installed apps so i can't remove it, what to do?

    Hm it's seems that there is something in the previous installation wat links back to your older sd card.
    A flaw in the wp eco is that you cant swap sd cards like that.....swapping or broke....same thing for the os...
    The only thing wat you can do is uninstalling the app, but you already did :/
    Did you try a softreset?
    Otherwise i see no way than a complete factory reset.......


    A wait, look in to the storage checker maybe you can try to do something in there....deleting temp files or try to delete it from there.

    I got a lot of errors and fixing the card was working till the last time, the sd card won't work on other devices so i think it is broke.

    Stick it in a pc/laptop and let it scan for errors.

    the card isn't recognized in an other device.
    I tried to manually install the app by downloading it on the pc, copying it to a SD card and then do a local install but I get an error code 80070057.
    I think the problem is that the system thinks the file is already installed on an other sd card and won't reinstall it again on a new one.

    Then i think its inevitable ....... New sd card.....factory reset.
    Is your sd card under warranty ?
    Take it back and ask a new one.
