Re: Phone not detecting micro SD card anymore...

This happened to me as well.

I think it occurs if you don't unmount the drive before removing it.

Data is on sd card, pc reads it but phone doesn't seem to recognise it.

 

Solution for me - sony xperia z ultra

Shutdown  the phone (not just turning off) , then restart it.

It recognises the drive on startup.

How come Sony aren't realising that it is their product that is the common denominator with this problem?

Re: Phone not detecting micro SD card anymore...

Hi everyone. I have the same issue, but with Xperia M. I guess that all Xperia phones has this problem. My card works perfectly in other android phones but Xperia doesn't see it at all. I restarted the phone to defaults. Updated to 4.3 android and installed all updates. I can't unmount or mount the sd card. The phone doesn't recognize it at all.

 

Does anyone has any ideas? The card was working fine for around 2 weeks since I bought it. It is Toshiba SD 16gb card. From time to time I got errors saying that my card had been disconnected. When I turned off the phone and turned it back on everything was fine.

 

It is definitely Xperia issue. Crying Face

Re: Phone not detecting micro SD card anymore...

If your phone upgraded to a newer version of ANDROID after 4.2 - you will lose the SD Card viewability - This happened to my tablet which wasn't a SONY tablet but it upgraded to the latest ANDROID which doesn't allow you to install software on your SD CARD anymore - this is something to do with GOOGLE and ANDROID - Not SONY.

But check what version of ANDROID you have on your phone anyway.

Hello,

 

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.

 

Kind regards,
