    sd card blank or has unsupported filesystem came up out of the blue. Card will not read in my phone or pc. Also noted that files now say internal storage is emulated not sd as before and no extsd storage exists. Put in a different sd card and it is recognized. Can anything be done or have I lost everything on this card and buy a new one? Thanks for any advice you may have.

    The card is most likely gone. If it's not too old, AND it's a SanDisk card, contact them. They may replace it.

    With SD cards, remember one thing - there are only 2 manufacturers - SanDisk/Toshiba (a joint venture) and Samsung. No one else makes the chips, but a lot of companies recycle old cards and they don't last very long.

    Was afraid of that. Oh well, it is a SanDisk that is about a year old. I'll see what they might do for me. Thanks for the advice-much appreciated.
