SD Card not working - XA1

I started my XA1 phone today and it shows, that SD Card is broken.

I tried that SD card in other mobile phone and also in computer. It shows that it's in perfect condition and I can read all files on it.

But when I put it back to XA1, it keeps saying that it is broken and I must formatt it. And of course I can't read any files from it in XA1. Yesterday was everything ok.

I am thinking that not the SDcard but slot in phone is broken ???

Just follow the link to video 

Well help you understand how to repair and reformat your sd card 

On a large sd card you'll need to format it to Exfat format 

OK it should sort sd card out 

But remember when doing this 

Everything on sd card will be erased 

But its the only way to repair the card I'm afraid

Re: SD Card not working - XA1

This is not a solution. This is a workaround for a fault with the phone. Just one more Sony screw-up.  The card in question could be read fine in other devices so it is not the card which is at fault. The reason I am on this site today is because I am having the same problem. AGAIN. This has happened at least four times and with different cards over the two years I've owned this problem device. I was hoping there was a solution by now. Apperently not.

 

Never again Sony.
