A friend gave me this phone and he said that the phone had some problems, namely it wouldn't recognize any kind of sd-card (external). I have updated the phone to ICS and tried to take some photos. What happens here is that the camera doesn't tshow any image, just shows the menus, options etc and says that there is no sd-card inserted.
I'm expecting a problem with my SD card: I can no longer mount it on my windows pc using my usb-microusb data cable.
I tried with different ROMs and different data cables of course :)
The SD card seems to be oddly fine. My phone recognizes it and my notebook SD card slot as well. I performed a check disk via Windows 7 and everything seems to be just fine.
Hi all, I'm running SlimBean 4.3.2. I had a piece of pencil lead stuck in my microphone slot yesterday, so I disassembled my phone to take it out. Once I was able to get it out I reassembled it and powered on, and my SIM card would read but I had no signal bars on my status bar, and I could not send or receive calls or texts.
So i have an SD card in my galaxy 3 however when i go to settings and hit storage usage and scroll down it say "insert sd card" The sd card is already inside.

I wonder if my phone is defective or is The sd card that is having the issue please help. :'(:'(:'(:'(:'(:'(
So yesterday I was taking a bunch of pictures. Then my phone says the SD card is not inserted anymore. I thought that's strange. So I took it out and inserted it back in and rebooted it. Same thing. I plugged my phone into the computer... I can't find my pictures ANYWHERE ON MY EXTERNAL SD CARD!! I DIDN'T DELETE THEM! Yet all my music is still on my external SD card. Can anyone help me PLEASE???
So this morning my S3 wouldn't recognize my micro SD card (a sandisk 32gb) I removed it from the phone and tried it on my computer and it didn't recognize it either. I tried another micro SD card in my phone and it worked. I'm guessing that the card is fried, my question is, is there any way to retrieve the data and pictures from the fried card?
