    Just had one of these; with a big red message and a red x in the Detach icon. Had to reboot, which got rid of it.
    Anyone else had this?

    Apart from this - which has only happened once, I have to say that my SB had been very well behaved since the recent updates...

    Some thing you see when you detach. If your using the DGP for an app you have to close it before it will let you detach. Also is you have a Sd card in the slot you will get a message. I've had messages like you has before but trying again it worked.

    I can't have an SD card inside the slot before detaching?

    I leave one in all the time and you don't have access to it when the clipboard is detached. It just tells me I won't have access.

    But when I retach it, can I access SD card normally or I have to reboot the device?

    I don't have to reboot when I re-attach the clipboard and can use it right away.

    Ok, thanks for the answers! So basically the thing is about getting a message? What is this message about?
