Pictures get corrupted

I have some issues with this phone. It didnt came with no sd card, so I used a 8gb class 4 and had this problem that when I take pictures they are ok, but after a few minutes or maybe a day they get corrupted. Change the card for a 32cd class 4, had the same problem.

Re: Pictures get corrupted

Have you been formatting the card prior to using it? Also when you swap cards with this problem, please ensure that you do not copy over any data from the old card as this can simply transfer the corrupt data.

Re: Pictures get corrupted

Everytime I swap cards I format it, and set th ephone to factory settings. With my old Samsung 4gb card didnt had this problems. Only with a Micro SD 8 gb class 4 and Micro SD 32gb class 4.

Is there a recomended brand of card that could avoid this?

Re: Pictures get corrupted

Are the pictures showing as corrupt if you look at them on a computer as well?

If not, delete the thumbnails and nomedia folder on the SD card. And go to Manage applications and clear data for Media storage. Now reboot your phone and check if they still appear as corrupted in the phone.

Re: Pictures get corrupted

They cant be seen on my computer either, the extension is still JPG but no program can open it, windows photo viewer, or irfanview will say unknown format.

Checking other discussions already tried to clear date from media storage before and didnt work.

If this helps I just checked some music I transfered using Media Go and some mp3 cant be read either, says not supported format. Other ones will work fine.

Thanks for taking the time to answer.

Re: Pictures get corrupted

Try running a software repair via PC Companion on the phone.

Then check if the problem still happens using any of your two SD cards.
