    Never had a problem with anything pertaining to my SD card and one day I go in to delete some files and I get this error message. I stayed up all night reading every article I could find on how to fix it.... And yes, I did the check disk thing. Nothing works. My phone won't even let me format it. Idk what to do and I would like to try to keep the data that's on the card. Can anyone help?

    Unfortunately that usually means the card is damaged or corrupted and there aren't many tools you can use (and since you already tried chkdsk, those tools are even less). I'd try inserting the card into a computer and see if you can first back up your data and then try to format it, but it doesn't bode well

    Since I can't get my phone to format it, do you think the computer will be able to or should I just back everything up and scrap it?

    The controller in the card has probably detected an error and locked it; that's how they're designed to work, which is an attempt to allow you to get the data off....

    Back it up, scrap it and replace it; while you *might* be able to reformat it on your computer it's a bad idea to continue using it.
