    hi there,
    I accidently formated the internal SD card...
    Were there system files or other important data erased?
    The phone seems to be working like it should, I only noticed that music, photo and video files were erased.

    Can anyone help?
    Thanks

    The internal SD is storage for the music/photos/videos or any personal files. Some apps do store their data on the internal SD. But the system files, and the apps are stored on the main rom and you can't delete them by formating the SD.

    You should be ok, you just need to resync your files.

    Ok, thanks for replying.

    Resync my files by using Kies?

    Just sync them the same way you did the first time, if you used KIES to sync music and videos to the phone use that. For me I just use Windows Explorer and just copy the files over.

    Hi, I am new to this forum and have a big problem...
    I accedently also formatted my internal SD card. Is there any way to restore the pics I had? unfortunatly I was not able to do a recent backup so sync is not possible. KIES is not always recognizing my phone. I might have a backup that my asys admin did but that was some while ago...
    really hope to get some help and heads up on this.

    If you formated the sd card then you are out of luck.
