Unable to read SD Card

    Hi there.

    I have removed the SD Card just now, to copy some photos to my PC.

    When I try re-inserting the card it now seems unable to recognise it.

    When I first push it in it informs me 'Preparing SD Card', but when it clicks into position the phone 'reckons' I have no SD card inserted.

    And yes I have got it in the correct way - in fact I think there is only one way of inserting it.

    Has anyone any ideas? I have found useful help on this forum in the past.

    It might be that your sd card got corrupted.
    Do this-
    Take backup on pc.
    Format sd card
    (Try to put sd card in phone to check if it is recognized)
    Restore backup and try again.

    Thanks for this Praky, and I think your reply is spot on.

    In fact it did recover after a few power downs and restarts.

    However I noticed that a large number of photos had been wiped off the SD card.

    Lucky I backed them up to the PC then!

    Once again thanks for your reply.
