    Okay, so what's going on is this- I noticed earlier today that my LG Motion wasn't reading my MicroSD card correctly. It's a 8GB card. I figured since I backed up the data on it fairly recently that letting my phone format it if it was corrupted. I let it do that and nothing changed, my phone still can't read it. I tried putting it in my MicroSD card adapter but my computer didn't even detect it. I did make sure it was in the unlocked position. Any ideas?

    Hello disturbed.

    If the card is not readable by your Android device or your PC via the adapter, it's possible that it is corrupted. You can test that in a few different ways. SD Tools is a pretty good app for getting info about the card while it's in the phone, btw.

    One way is to go into your file app ("my files" on most stock Android devices, you may have a 3rd party file app) and tap "all files," then tap "external sdcard." If it's not readable, it may not even be listed. If it's listed, but tapping any folder or file in there yields an error message or nothing, then yeah, it's likely corrupted.

    Another way is to put the card in another Android device and make an attempt to see the card and its contents.

    Yeah, it's weird. I can access the SD card thro apps like the FBreader.
