32GB SD card suddenly not recognized by phone.
this card has been in the phone since launch day which is 2? years ago. A few weeks ago I started putting a few apps on the SD card because I was getting a message about space on the internal memory when I'd install apps ( I think it was that it was down to about 3GB free on internal mem). I had no problem with the apps I moved to SD, but 2 days ago I got a message that the card was being unmounted, so I remounted and it seemed fine.
It's the red over gray, Ultra 32GB HC I
Another bit of info: about 10 days ago I accidently deleted all my photos so I used an app on a PC to recover them. The recovered files I placed on my PC, but not back on the card. Perhaps those deleted files which were recovered, somehow are the root cause of the problem, but geez, a week later??
This morning, on boot up, it wouldn't mount, so I tried to manually mount, for a while it showed "checking for errors" and that process didn't complete. I pulled the card, reinserted, and the system thinks there is no card. My computer has no issues reading the card.
I popped in a spare 16GB card I had laying around; it works. It mounted automatically and I saved a photo to it.
Is there a solution other than buying another card or formatting it? I'm wondering if a factory reset might fix this.
