    So yesterday I was taking a bunch of pictures. Then my phone says the SD card is not inserted anymore. I thought that's strange. So I took it out and inserted it back in and rebooted it. Same thing. I plugged my phone into the computer... I can't find my pictures ANYWHERE ON MY EXTERNAL SD CARD!! I DIDN'T DELETE THEM! Yet all my music is still on my external SD card. Can anyone help me PLEASE??? I'm desperate.

    Well.... you could use your phone, but didnt you just say it wasnt working?

    If you use a file manager is your picture folders empty?

    you can get a card reader at best buy

    same thing happened to me. I think it might be fried. This exact thing has been well documented, for some reason S3s dont play nice with external sd cards sometimes and fail to read them from some point on and the sd card fails to work

    If you found your pictures in a directory, why not just cut and paste them to your pictures folder? Or u could just upload that folder to drop box

    This. I'd upload all of your pictures to dropbox so you don't lose them. In the future no matter what phone you have always back your pictures up if they are important.

    Try connecting your phone to a pc. Find the lost directory on the sd card and drag it over to the desktop

    I solved it by uploading the pictures to my computer and changing the file extension to jpg. Thanks. I seemed to recover my photos. Well 90% of them anyways.
