I bought my Xperia Z a while ago, and with it, a micro SD card. I've been using the phone (with the sd card inserted) without any problems. I've stored my pictures, music, files, etc. in there and always worked fine.
Yesterday, I got a notification on my phone about a new software update. Once I got home, I had the phone updating only to discover that after it finished, my sd card is no longer detected...
Any help would be appreciated please.

Sorry to hear that! Where is the SD card not being recognised within the handset? If you connect your handset to a PC with the SD card inserted, does the PC detect the SD card?

Hello, thank you for the reply.
The SD card is not being recognised on the handset and if I connect the handset to the PC, the PC does not detect the SD card either.

It does seem that when also directly inserting the sd card into the PC, it cannot detect it.
So, this pretty much means that the latest update ruined my SD card? Didn't even figure this as possible..

I couldn't confirm that it was caused by the update exactly as it could have been a coincidence (this is not something which can usually occur with an update) but it does sound like the SD has malfunctioned. It may be worth contacting the SD card manufacturer.

Thank you for this information stringer97.
Makes me sad to know that I've lost all my data along with my SD card, but at least I now know my next phone isn't going to be a Sony for sure...
Seems that sony support people didn't even care to tell me this themselves, adding insult to injury.
