    This is for people who have had their sd cards delete their information by itself. I have had this happen a couple of times and I am wondering if it is something to do with the SD card or the android system doing this.

    :eek:Man you just jinxed yourself:eek:

    Similar issue here -have not lost any files on the External SD {PNY 32gb} but music and pics seem to disappear then reappear at will. I see more backups to CPU in my near future.
    Great:mad:

    Sounds like an issue with the cards. Make sure they're name brand and not generic. Sandisk makes the most reliable ones on the market.

    Good idea, NAND flash degrades over time, especially if you write to it a lot.

    I get the same issue with the gallery not showing any pics sometimes.. A reboot fixes it for me.. Still would be nice to know the cause..

    Backup all of your pics. I do that all the time. Once a month I usually copy my pictures to a folder on my computer so I won't lose them. A good app to get in case you do lose them is recuva. Google it. It is free and can restore deleted files from your sd card.

    Although personally haven't set it up you can also sync it with a drop box account.. automatically throws it into the cloud..

    Do you think it might be the type of class of your sd card?

    I'm pretty sure it's an issue with the phone. Sometimes it doesn't finish checking the internal memory and/or SD card for media/pictures so they don't show up. I've had it happen several times when my phone was on the B firmware and would reboot a lot. Hasn't happened since.

    Nothing is getting "deleted" per se, the phone just doesn't know the files are there.

    If it happens again, try unmounting your SD card (via settings, SD card and phone storage) and then remounting it. It will perform the media check again.
