    That's the notification I got this morning. But for what reason? I did not mess with my settings so I have no idea what's going on. Anyone else having thus issue?

    That's usually the message that appears after you've selected the Unmount SD option. Is the tablet still reading the external SD? If not, take it out and reinsert it. If it still isn't reading, go to Settings>Storage, and see if there is an option for Mount SD.

    If the SD still isn't being read, it might have become corrupted. Remove it, insert it into your computer, and see if you can access all of the data.

    B. Diddy has the best course of action. If it were me, I would pull the card out to have my PC check the card for errors.

    Welcome to Android Central! Which device do you have? Are you certain the PC is accessing the data on the SD card vs Internal Storage?

    That message is from unmounting the card, the easiest fix is to go to settings->storage and select the mount option.

    Second easiest way power off your phone, remove the battery, wait 10 seconds, reinstall the battery, boot the phone... The external sd should niw show up.

    Hi
    I have the same problem with my micro SD card for my S4 active.
    it is possible to access the data but not to delete and write on the card (therefore it is not possible to format as well).
    The card is mounted to the Phone.

    What I tried:
    -Restart the phone (with removing battery for several minutes)
    -Putting the card in the laptop and by right clicking on it and opening properties, no tab for securitiy is available.
    -Checking registry why the tab is not available (StorageDevicePolicies entries are not existing and for other folders the tab is available, so that shouldnt be the problem)
    -try to format the card on my laptop wount work because of restricted write permissions as well.
    -There is no switch on the card for locking

    Does any one has an idea how to format the card now?
    Thanks for your ideas

    If you don't mind losing data on the card, put it back in your PC. On your PC right click on My Computer and select Manage.

    In the management console, on the left bear the bottom is Drive Management.. Select that.

    Then in the center scroll down to the sd card and it'll show if it has been partitioned and made active. From there you can repartition, format and make active. Do not partition as NTFS use FAT32 or FAT32ext

    The card should be read/write able now

    If not.. Card is toast

    Thanks, but it still not works. I also tried diskpart and a lot of other thinks as well now but still not working. Meanwhile I'm pritty much sure that the sd card is just brocken. So I will buy a new one the next days. But thanks a lot for your help.
