1. Android Central Question's Avatar
    Whenever I'm taking picture, i always get this pop up on my phone "Error. Could not save photos. There may be a problem with the data storage. If Data storage is set to SD card, please check your SD card". Out of 29.71GB, only 19.97 was used. Ahhrrgg! I'm so frustrated with this! Please help. I've already tried to eject the SD and restarted my phone (xperia 3z) but same error keeps coming. How can I fix this? I badly need help pleasseeeee.

    Welcome to Android Central! The SD card could be corrupt, defective, or counterfeit. Install SD Insight to see if the card is genuine or counterfeit. Counterfeit cards are programmed to report more storage than they actually have, and if you try saving more than the card can actually hold, then files can start getting corrupt. (Be aware that SD Insight might not work on all Nougat devices.)


    If it's a valid card, then go to Settings>Storage, Unmount the card, remove it, and insert it into your computer. Can the computer read these files? Backup as much as you can right now, then run chkdsk to look for bad sectors: http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...d-sd-card.html.
