    Hi,
    My Micro SD card was getting corrupt files errors, so I took it out and scanned it on my PC, found nothing wrong, copied the files to the PC then reformatted the card and put it back in the phone.
    Three days later the same thing happened, with the same results.
    So, I bought a new card, put it in the phone on Saturday, then woke up this morning to see the corrupted files error yet again.
    Can anyone offer any advice, please?
    Many thanks.

  2. First of all, you need to clarify if the appearance is a one-time system crash. To do this, restart the device, and then turn to the USB flash drive again. Android “SD card corrupted” message stops in most cases. If it continues to give an error, then you need to pull it out and inspect it. Perhaps the contacts are covered with dust or the memory card slot itself is dirty. In this case, clean the contact pads and then reinsert the memory card firmly.

    Hi, I tried restarting the phone and cleaned contacts, and still had corrupt files message. As I said, this has now happened with 2 different cards, the 2nd one being only 4 days old, and when I scan them on my PC there is no mention of anything being wrong. This makes no sense to me.
