    From time to time my SD card will appear to kind of stop working. I noticed this when my ringtone would revert to a stock Verizon one or I wouldn't be able to see some of my photos, which are on this SD card. Although I can't see these in their respective areas (ringtone settings or gallery), I can still browse through the SD card in a file manager and see all of those files. So then I have to go into settings, unmount and re-mount it (the 16GB card).

    Have any of you had this issue?

    I have issues with the music app losing it's songs every once on a while (which are stored on the SD. I usually reboot to restore the list, but next time maybe I'll try the unmount/remount option to see if that works.

    Agreed though, if we have the same issue it is certainly an annoyance.

    Hmm it's not the class speed.

    I thought I read some where android doesn't support sd cards faster than class 4. That's not it tho.

    Use your sd card in another device and see if you get the same problem could be just a bad sd card.

    Resurrecting this thread. I am now seeing this happen on a regular basis. It is also affecting my pictures, and unmount/remount will not fix. I have to restart my phone which takes about 5 minutes. This is very annoying, does anyone know of a fix for this issue?

    I had this happen with my Dinc. I downloaded "SDrescan" and hit that whenever I had a problem and it fixed it immediately.

    Hope it helps!

    Absolutely ridiculous that you should need an app to do this. But thanks.;)
