    I was wondering if anyone had seen this issue before -
    Yesterday I took two photos with my s4 and noticed today that although the thumbnails look fine, the images themselves are just vertical black and white lines, looking nothing like the thumbnail.

    I've tried sending it various ways and have moved it from sd to device storage, but nothing works, although I can still see my photos in the thumbnails.

    Any suggestions appreciated!

    Welcome to Android Central! If they originally saved to the microSD card, then the card itself might 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 photos aren't crucial to save, then go ahead and allow chkdsk to try repairing those sectors. If the photos are really precious, then you'll have to try recovering them using 3rd party software: http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...ted-files.html
