    Default Sony Experia Z Memory ISSUES!!! PLEASE HELP!!!!

    Ok I have had my phone for quite a while now and I only seem to have one issue!

    I cant get my photos videos and music to store to my memory card! Does anyone have any ideas?

    it is driving me insane and i'm sick of having to uninstall apps to create space when I want to take pictures etc

    When ever I go to transfer data, straight away it says 'Transfer interrupted. Check your SD card for possibly transferred data'.

    Nothing is transferred!!!!!!

    It could be full, it could have been "unmounted" in the system, or it could be corrupted. MicroSd cards seem to be made from the leftover chips or memory manufacturers, they are often corrupted at purchase. Copy it's contents on a computer, re-format the card using a computer, and then try to completely fill it up with data. If you get an error copying before filling it up to 29 Gbytes, it's highly probable you MicroSD card is corrupt.

    It is not an issue of it being full or corrupted it's more then likely with Sony cause I've used 2 sd cards and this had happened on Xperia z and sp

    I had the same problem with Xperia Z.

    In my case the problem were a few files created by DS Photo+ third party application. The files had characters within their names (colons) that are not allowed on FAT filesystems but are allowed on Linux/Android filesystems. This is why the app was able to save them on the Internal Storage but then the phone was not able to move them to the SD Card since SD Cards use FAT filesystem.

    SOLUTION:
    Find and delete these malformed files using file manager application. After that transfer to SD Card worked like a charm again.

    For reference: list of illegal characters for FAT filesystems: \ / : * ? " < > |

    Good luck.

    You can rename those files, no need to delete.

    In my case, Google Hangouts saved the images with ":" character to DCIM/Camera folder.

    This worked for me as well. I had the same problem with "Transfer Interrupted. Check your SD card for possibly transferred data.".

    For me it was the podcast "Coding Blocks" that added a | in the folder name, when | was removed from the folder name I could transfer all my files to SD-card :-)

    Thanks!
