Default Big problem

Ok, an half hour ago, i switched my sd card but it could not be recognized anymore. I thought 'maybe its because of editing vold.fstab'
So i am going to file manager but i can't access anything!
I don't see my SD card or my internal memory anymore.
So i am realy stucked now. If i put my phone in my computer, its see's it, but show no maps.

Big problem?

Ok, i edited the file again like it was before, but it still does not read my SD card.
I am now be able again to see my internal files.
There is still something wrong. When i put out the phone, and turn it back on, i see the SD card icon for a couple sec (it appears always for a couple sec so thats normal). But when i go to settings->storage , i see my internal space, and if i go to where it should show my sd card, i see erase SD card instead of 'couple sd card'.
So i thought,'maybe i just have to format it' so i selected erase SD card, after that, i see that it erased my internal memory. Realy weird.

What should i do now?

PS; Lilbit , thanks for you reply!

Looks like your phone's system now thinks the external SD card and the internal USB memory changed places. I don't know a solution for that.
It also looks like you erased your SD card and lost all its contents.

First thing I would do is unmount the SD card, remove it from the phone, stick it into a card reader connected to your PC or Mac, and apply a 'data rescue' application to that SD card to try to save whatever data is possible from it. Save that for the time being on your PC's or Mac's HD.
Then stick the card back into the phone and format it there (which erases it GOOD!). After that you can move all the 'old' data from your PC or Mac via USB to the freshly formatted card in the phone.
