    A few days ago I got a message on my phone saying that the MicroSD card was unexpectedly unmounted. I looked at the storage, down to SD card and it had not even read/recognized it. I removed it and put it back in but to no avail. I even turned the phone off, restarted the phone etc. I also used a USB Card reader which also did not recognize/read the card- same with an microsd card adapter. Is it completely lost? If so I also tired a recovery program called ZAR which found (what I think) my sd card and tried to read it but I got a message saying that there were no files so it was either badly damaged or misconfigured. Help would be GREATLY appreciated.

    Welcome to the forums!

    This is so very common with the S4 and a big part of the reason I no longer have one. There's something about the phone that eats mSD cards. Overvolting, undervolting the mSD? By chance, do you have a Sandisk Ultra mSD card? The S4 loves to snack on those...rendering them nothing more than lifeless silicon.

    Wow. Good to know. I am just in the process of looking for an SD card for my wife's S4 and my Note 2.

    Any recommendations?

    The 40MB/s PNY cards have worked pretty well for me.
