Re: Need help with lost but found pictures
If you purchased the Motorola Electrify (not Electrify 2 or Electrify M), I'm excited to say I can help with this a bit as I had the same problem last year. First, definitely create a back up of your photos.

It took me a little while to figure out. I think there is also a setting where you can tell the phone to set the sd card as the main/primary storage.
If you purchased the Motorola Electrify M, and are having this problem (I did, too) - it could be a few things: I just upgraded to this phone on 3/4/13. I purchased a SanDisk 32G Ultra microSD/microSDHC/microSDXC as the description indicated this was the best card for smartphones and very quickly experiencing the same issue with my pictures. I eventually caught a very quick glimpse of a "filesys error" message. I took that card out & replaced it with a "regular: 32G microSD card I had leftover from a previous phone. I re-formatted the card and moved both my pictures & music to this card. After putting this card into the phone, everything worked fine.
I contacted Motorola customer service with this issue. We believe it is an issue with the type of card.
