    Default Galaxy S5 restart killed my SD card??

    Hi Guys,

    I have an S5 and restarted it yesterday afternoon and after restart my SD card is no longer recognized. The error read something along the lines of "card not recognized or invalid file type". It is also not recognized on my PC anymore either. Is there any way to recover my memory card?

    Has anyone else had this issue? Thoughts?

    Thanks

    You can try to recover the files on your PC. There are recovery programs that can help with this, I just don't know any specific ones.

    If you can't reformat the card, it is probably unusable. I hope I am wrong, so that you can recover your files, but to be blunt, I don't think this can be fixed.
