    It's not uncommon for microSD cards to go bad. It's always good to keep a backup. If you can use a sd card adapter and see if you can get your pc to read it and copy everything off. Both my laptops came with a SD card reader standard.

    So, it's toast in my phone???But sometimes works in a regular computer??It's freaking weird and stupid!!My desktop don't have a SD slot, so it really sucks.Worst case,I'll copy pics on a pc, and get a new SD card.I just wanted to rule out my phone???Seeing the SD card seemed fine on computers???

    Scroll up to starscreams post and read it again. After backing up the data ; reformat the SD card.

    When formatting, I suggest as I do to everyone, first test the card via h2test, then format w/ sdformatter (NOT built in windows format)
    Here is a zip file containing both apps: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/65761686/sdtestandformat.zip

    The Testing app, I discovered when i had purchased a 32 gig card on ebay, and kept getting errors, upon running the test i discovered it was a fake. Regardless you may have cluster errors it will detect, and sdformatter will format it properly.

    This worked for me great. SD FORMATTER WAS THE KEY.
