My Samsung S5 corrupted the SDCard and 98% of the media on it

    Hello,

    Yesterday I had all my picture and video working on my S5 and today when I went in the gallery all the pictures where showing with an exclamation point.

    I have tried to put the sd in my mac to see if I could open the pictures from there, but no luck the 99% of the picture cannot be opened (it says the file may be damaged or corrupted)

    But like I said no ALL the picture are corrupted, there is still 'a couple' that can be opened (not obligatory the last picture I took, it's random)

    What the heck happened ? I did install any app from a day to an other nor did anything special.

    Is there a way to repair the picture on the SDCard ?

    Thank you!

    How old is your SD card?

    What make and size is it?

    Where did you purchase it from?

    Install SD Insight, free from the Play Store and check your card out.

    My SD card is about 3-4 year old.
    It is MicroSD HC (classA) - 16GB
    Don't remember when I got it;
    I will try SD Insight right now

    Your card just reached "end of life", it had nothing to do with the S5.

    they are only good for "X" number of read/write cycles, and yours just reached that End of Life point....
    when that happened, the pointers to each file got messed up....
    sorry, for your loss, but you should have had them backed up onto a PC/Mac
