    My LG-H634 (Stylo) suddenly stopped reading my 16 gig sd card where many of my apps & documents were parked. It keeps telling me to insert & mount an sd card. I've taken the proper steps, yet the area for mounting remains "greyed out." Any ideas or advice? This is extremely frustrating.

    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.

    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. If it finds bad sectors, and the files aren't crucial to save, then go ahead and allow chkdsk to try repairing those sectors. If the files are really precious, then you'll have to try recovering them using 3rd party software: http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...ted-files.html
