    Good afternoon or evening.
    I have met a very strange problem today:
    At fisrt, my phone refused to make photos. When I loaded camera and pressed the button to capture a photo, the screen just stopped reacting as well as all three buttons (backward, desktop and search) and even a blocking one. Soon I managed to block it and when unblocked the camera was closed and I couldn't load it again. I tried to reboot my phone, but everything stayed just the same - I open the camera, try to make a photo, then it closes after 5-7 seconds.
    Later, camera couldn't load AT ALL, there was a black screen with "Loading" and after that I was returned to the previous screen.

    Next, I found out that I couldn't
    open music
    open photos
    or even save photos from the Internet
    In all, I just couldn't work with any file.

    "Frustration" is the only right description.

    Soon I found the root: the phone suddenly showed a mesage that I pulled out the SD-card (though I didn't even do that).
    So, why not? I just really pulled it out, switched on my phone and... everything was just fine!
    Inserted it again - the same glitches.

    Still didn't try it with another SD-card.
    My phone and the card never "betrayed" me - both were bought less than half a year ago.

    Has anyone ever had such a problem?
    Sorry if there any mistakes, I'm not a native speaker.

    Is there a chance you can get ahold of another SD card to try. It might help troubleshooting to determine if it's any card, or just that one.

    This morning everything was just fine, but after I was listening to music for about 15 minutes, the problems began again.
    I tried 2 different SD-cards, both of which the phone didn't "like" at first: I had messages of "SD-cards error, reboot your phone", also didn't see any files from the card.
    Now they work fine with my phone, but I still have problems with exactly my first card.

    The one one I have problems with is SanDisk 32gb Ultra, other two: SanDisk 16gb and 128mb
    Maybe that's because of it's size? Recently I've been having messages that there not enough space on my phone, maybe it's just unable to cope with ~27gb of files on my card.
    I can see photos and open music files from those two, with this one I can't even go to settings.

    I had that too! The phone completely freezing when trying to take a picture.. In my case, reformatting the card to fat32 with a cluster size (I hope this is the right word, it's the minimum size a file can have as far as I understood it) set to 32KB. The program I used labels it as "Allocation Unit Size".

    It seems like it's still better to buy a new card, because in fact now music library, albums and songs load muuuch more slower, I don't see album covers and it seems like all the songs are kind of doubled. I will try again, but anyway it's better than the previous problem
