Re: Transfer of data to SD card interrupted

Hi and welcome to the community! Since you're new please be sure that you have checked out our Discussion guidelines.

 

First of all try to remove your SD card for a while and put it back in. If the behavior still persists, try to move the data to SD card when you are in safe mode: 

http://talk.sonymobile.com/t5/FAQ/How-to-boot-your-phone-into-safe-mode/m-p/348008#U348008

 

If the problem persists in safe mode, connect your phone to the PC and transfer all the data from the SD card to the PC. Then format the SD card by right click on it > format. (All data on SD card will be deleted). 

 

Disconnect the phone, restart the phone and try again.

Re: Transfer of data to SD card interrupted

In my case the problem were a few files created by DS Photo+ third party application. The files had characters within their names (colons) that are not allowed on FAT filesystems but are allowed on Linux/Android filesystems. This is why the app was able to save them on the Internal Storage but then the phone was not able to move them to the SD Card since SD Cards use FAT filesystem.


THE SOLUTION:

Find and delete malformed files using file manager application (for eg. File Commander). After that transfer to SD Card worked like a charm again.

 

For reference: list of illegal characters for FAT filesystems: \ / : * ? " < > |

Re: Transfer of data to SD card interrupted

I was getting this every time I tried the 'transfer to SD card' function.  Simlpy going to storage and unmounting, then remounting the SD card fixed it for me :-)

 

cheers
