Solving problems with files on the memory card

Solved questions in this topic:

  • The disappearance of files and folders from the memory card;
  • Various audio and video players do not see some of the files recorded on the memory card;
  • Files are not copied and / or deleted from the memory card.
If you do not record new data on the card, and the old ones will appear again after deletion
and formatting does not help - map the corpse and restore it will not succeed!

A bit of theory.
FolderLOST.DIR . Why does it fill up?
This folder is created when Android starts the File System ChecK (analogue Windows Chkdsk) and finds the lost files of the chain. These files appear if you pull the memory card at a time when it will be written to. Because Windows attempts to write files using a caching mechanism. When you pull out the cable, the cache contents are not to be stored on the disk and the data in the file are defective. Once the device is disconnected from the computer, Android starts scanning the card and finds such "broken" files by moving them to the remains of the directory LOST.DIR.

Useful links:
1. FAQ on devices and Android OS - look in the FAQ for your device, maybe there are described recommended memory cards for a specific model of the device.
2. Look at the topic"Accessories" Your device. It can also be collected useful information on work and non-work cards.
3. Difficult to choose a card? Then look here:Accessories for various devices , as well as a lot of advice was here I want to buy a 32GB microSD card. Advise. , and here: Choosing a flash card

Let's start to practice.

Common to all similar problems actions:

1. Always, before disconnecting the device from the computer, select "Safely Remove"Attached Image, and further, in the device itself "Disconnect USB storage device" (P.S. It may be called differently, depending on the model and firmware of the device).
2. Check the memory card using the applicationScandisk .
3. The problem may lie in the memory card itself. Try formatting it and following the advice above, write files to it.
- How to format:
  • Full formatting using the phone: Menu-Settings-Memory-Unplug the memory card (Remove the card) -Clear the card-Connect the SD-card (PS names and paths may vary depending on the phone model);
  • Formatting using a computer with a choice of different cluster sizes.
  • Formatting using a special applicationSD Formatter or Hard Disk Low Level Format Tool . The so-called "low-level" formatting.

4. Try changing the cache on the memory card using this application:® SD Speed ​​Increase
5. Formatting does not help? Try replacing the memory card with another one.
6. The files you recorded from the computer are visible and not from the device? See if there is a file in the folder where you wrote them..nomedia (hidden file). If there is, delete it.

I.Lost your recorded files on the memory card.
1. It was noticed that some files may disappear due to various installed applications. Solving problems with files on the memory card. (Post # 11633656) . Try to remove the latest installed applications, after which this problem was noticed.
2. Solving a problem with a galleryQuickpic - show hidden folders - folder thumbnails it may be missing photos and videos.
3. If the proposed methods do not help, reset to factory settings. This will help to identify whether the problem was in the programs or, perhaps, also in the firmware.
4. Update the firmware version.

Ii.The music player does not see most of the audio files, the explorer and multimedia players fly out while trying to play.
1. Look at the length of the file name, as well as the presence of any characters in them (punctuation marks, etc.). If the names are too long - try to shorten them. In some cases, this procedure helped. How to do this is described here: Solving problems with files on the memory card. (Post # 14068522)

Guys. Thank you for your help, figured out. )) 0
It was really in the "sheep" that were files with flowers, hearts, icons of melodies and other crap. As soon as they renamed them adequately, it immediately stopped flying and started to appear, thanks again for the help.

2. If there are many files and you have placed them in one folder, then the majority may not be displayed. Try to distribute them into several folders, approximately equally.
3. Go to Settings / Applications / Application Management / Applications, find "Media Storage" Clear Data button.
4. If you use a standard player, then try installing any third-partyCustom Application Directory (Post # 11148359).
5. Files downloaded from the Internet (Vkontakte or other sources) are not displayed? See this:Solving problems with files on the memory card. (Post # 13939287)
6. Look at the correctness of filling tags in the file. If there are various unreadable characters in them, then this may be the reason for player / conductor departures. How to fix tags described here
6. Also, in solving this problem, formatting the memory card helped.

Of course I'm not sure. but map exactly working again, I bypassed this problem once before. just lost a decision.
I thought maybe someone will remember from the standard solutions similar method and remind me.

You are mistaken in thinking that there is some "standard" solution.
At least, that's how you describe the problem, or a method that look, not alluding to any "standard".

You yourself suggested that this feature of the firmware.
Therefore, the advice to ask in the theme of a particular firmware, this is a consequence of your (!) The problem of the findings.

P.S. Personally, my opinion is that you did not initially find the correct method to solve the problem chosen. You yourself have decided that your problem can be solved somehow, as you imagine, and look for it is this one unique method. At the same time, you yourself can not accurately describe this method. And the problem itself is not described in detail because it does not solve the problem came to look, and the only true in your opinion the way to solve it. With this approach, you do have limited opportunity to receive assistance: without describing the problem = depriving themselves of the opportunity to hear all the possible solutions, moreover, depriving themselves of the opportunity to verify whether the "classified" You're my problem, maybe she is not "the same" like last time, is not the ability to accurately and clearly describe the method itself, which is looking for, but it is only by focusing on it, you and the search for its limit. Forget the solution method. Describe in detail the problem itself.

* W.Master,

I agree with the fine print. just as long as I think that the problem is easier than you think and hope to resolve it quickly and correctly - zabekaplyu and format.
and the problem of the already made description is not particularly out:

128GB SanDisk Extreme card is worth the phone rmn3pro aka Kenzo firmware aex on nougat
any computer on vin10 or the same phone
can not delete files from the memory card.
the format is not valid, since there important data, no copies.

a year ago was the same story in the same environment.
I found a solution in the network either with the removal, or renaming of a file on the memory card. that's all I remember.
still I surprised how easy everything was decided.

that's the whole story.
whether to recall the same decision, whether to apply a new, differently fit :)
just not the format.
yet arziviruyu data and fill in the gdisk to be able to format unless there is a solution.

New files are not the same?

Rep: (62)
* W.Master,

not sure, so do not write, and I can not check, as is the archiving process. but it may be so, since the most recent file on the card, I saw on the 19th of the year (ie, the phone is not able to maintain since then nothing). but it is absolutely true that before I shot this problem and working with files on the card without any problems. and the last time was the same story.

Phone Samsung galaxy j7.
After replacing the 32GB memory card to 64 GB of full-time Gallery does not display the new pictures (appears gray box with the! Sign, when you press writes unsupported format) captured with your camera and stored on the card. Old pictures sees. If the pictures are stored in the phone memory, then everything is OK. The old memory card is now the same garbage. Moreover, these pictures are stored on the map and normally open Total Commander or 7Zipper.
Likewise, they do not see or do not show any of these pictures gallery installed with pleymarketa.
Resetting the cache and data of the camera, galleries and media storage does not help.
What kind of crap happened? How to overcome this?
