    Basically topic title.

    Was transferring some music files from my laptop to my s9+ which I've done before. I checked on the Samsung music app but they weren't there. Restarted my phone and none of my music was there and I reconnected to my laptop via USB and it only came up with the 'phone' option not 'sd card'

    I love my music, I have alot of tracks on my laptop but I can put them into my sd as my phone no longer recognises is

    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 or above 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.
