I accidentally hit 'unmount SD card' and just lost all my pictures. Any idea how to undo that? And get my gallery.
Hmm.. I was going to say simply remount the card, but apparently there's no button for that. Seems to be a bit of an oversight to me. But wait! there is a way to do it without power cycling. Plug the USB cable into a computer and pull down the notification shade. Select the "USB Connected" button. That will attach the SD card to the computer as a drive. Eject the drive from the computer the same way you would a flash drive, then pull down the notification shade again and select "Turn off USB storage". Voila! The SD card will be back in it's proper place
That's odd. An unmount shouldn't cause you to lose files unless the PC was accessing files or something during the unmount. If files are actually missing you might want to mount and use a file recovery tool on your PC.
Try verifying whether or not the photos are there with a file manager (though they should be in the Gallery if they're there). Power cycling, as mikes suggested, may help.
i just did this exact same thing. i hit unmount sd card by mistake and lost pictures. i don't care about losing the photos, but would like to have the card working again. can i just hit format sd card? that won't make me lose any apps or other stuff, just the already lost pics, yes, no? i just got my droid a few days ago so i do not know what you are talking about above. power cycle, don't know what that is, nor what jimnutt mentioned either. i am a newbie.
