    Hi all. So having an issue thats driving me crazy. I have a 64bg Generic SD card which has been ok up until recently. Now my gallery is not recognising any photos located there. I can, however, view them through a file explorer. Have located hidden .nomedia extensions and deleted (but they were on the device not SD). Have tried downloading another gallery app, and still same result. Am at my wits end. Thinking of moving all files to my laptop, to reformat the SD, and put em all back on after. But will that even fix it? Any advice is much appreciated. Am using an S5 on Lollipop. Thanks in advance

    Hi, if you do consider formatting the SD card can I suggest that you let the phone do it, there is less likely-hood of the phone not recognising it. Phil
