    SD card unmounted itself.

    I noticed my photos were gone last night so I checked my storage and my SD card was unmounted.
    Any ideas as to why it would unmount itself?
    I haven't rebooted the phone in a few days, it's not rooted, other than Swype freezing it hasn't been acting up either. Stock ICS, Nova Launcher.
    Thanks

    Throw it away, it's trashed... Then go buy an iPhone 5

    Seriously though, my work Rez did this a couple times right after getting ICS, I just pulled the battery, removed the microSD card and used some compressed air on the slot, reseated the card and put it all back together and no problems since. Not sure if it would help, but it's a simple thing to try.

    Re: SD card unmounted itself.

    Sure I'll try it. Thanks.
    The only thing I can think of operationally would be the other day as Dropbox was uploading some photos I was deleting some that were in the upload que(sp?)
    I doubt the Swype update, the same day it happened, that broke Swype on the phone did it though until I force closed Swype the phone was laggy and the battery was running very warm, but with all this fragmentation it's possible I suppose.
    My Inc 1 forgets the gallery every now and then but doesn't unmount the card so I figured they were still somewhere when I started looking. Opening a file explorer, open DCIM, on the Inc seems to refresh its memory when they disappear. When they weren't in the DCIM and ES showed external sd card as empty I went the look in storage settings route.

    Had that happen to me as well. After a few days I figured out what happened. No idea what caused it though.

    It did it again Thursday.
    Since turning off "backup and sync" in Swype beta and switching my text app to Chomp from Handcent my phone has been faster, better battery life and card hasn't acted up at all. Handcent wouldn't compute the data size within the app and wouldn't allow me to switch it to phone instead of card. I switched to Chomp in Thursday evening.
    Maybe coincidence, maybe not.

    Re: SD card unmounted itself.

    I've had this happen twice more in the last week or so.

    I have Swype but no 3rd party text apps.

    Do you have Swype backup and sync unchecked? Mine hasn't messed up since disabling that "feature" in Swype beta.
