    I've tried rebooting the phone. The message in the notification bar at the top of the screen has gone but the errors remain.

    When I open the camera I receive the following message: "Unable to save to SD card due to insufficient file permissions"

    When I try to open photos or videos whilst in the camera, I receive this message "An error was encountered on your SD card" and I cannot view any files.

    The pictures associated with my my website bookmarks have all been replaced with question marks.

    Bizarely though music plays fine. However, when I try to delete tracks, I get the message saying that the file has been deleted only for the file to reappear!

    Strange.

    Connect to your PC, then mount as a USB Drive, can you transfer files etc.

    If you can, copy over the files you want to keep then format the card. I don't know if it will work, but it's a shot in the dark.
