- 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.04-07-2014 08:06 AM
- Hmmm....I put the card in my old Bionic. It mounted and I can play music files from it.
deleted apps from phone that had been set to run from SD card.
Scandisk on PC showed no errors and it is about 1/2 full of files.
put it back in phone. it is working normally.
now i just have to reinstall the apps that had been on the SD card and this time I'll skip the larger apps and keep all apps on internal memory.
the second thing I will do is keep my fingers crossed...04-07-2014 09:16 AM
- I've had that card for over 2 years. it has worked fine. apparently a glitch with either of the two issues I noted above; apps-to-SD, or more likely a free Windows app that recovered a few hundred deleted photos. After 2 years of use, I can't agree that the card is an issue.04-08-2014 03:48 PM
