    Copying the contents to pc & reformatting the card is the only way i know that works.

    Sometimes when I plug my phone in, Windows asks to scan it for errors. Could this resolve the issue above too?!

    If you are using windows 7 at all & happen to disconnect the phone before windows informs you its ok, then windows will want to scan for errors next time you connect.
    This only happens in disk drive mode.


    You either need use a card reader or select disk drive mode when you connect the phone to the pc

    Next time Eject it from Windows (right click drive letter, select eject) before unplugging it. That'll solve it.

    Errr... Sorry I don't think I was clear. I know why it happens and what to do. I'm a Desktop Engineer ;)

    I was just wondering if the scan can be provoked, it could resolve the OP's issue

    That's a good line of thought if it can be provoked, may provide an easy way to get out of having to format too.

    You may find it could be a temperamental sd card you have, in which case you have been unlucky & need a new one.

    What card is it? If it's the Samsung supplied, its not a very reliable card. I have read many threads here where owners have had issues with it.

    And I'm an IT Consultant. Of course I'm going to tell you what you already know :p :D

    Seriously, I was only giving my experience. When I had this problem, ejecting it stopped it happening next time I connected.

    Ok. probably easiest plug your phone into PC, select disk drive in notification area. Open the drive in my computer and copy the contents to a folder named SDCARD onyour pc desktop or something.

    Select charge only in notification area and unplug the phone.

    Then go Menu>Settings>Sd card and phone storage

    Unmount the card and format it.

    Then when complete, mount the card.

    Plug the phone in, Select disk drive in notification area and copy the contents Inside your SDCARD folder back to the card.
