    Is anyone having a issue with there sd card? It tells me that I have no sd card and to add a new one. And sometimes it says sd card unexpectedly removed and to unmount sd card before removing it. I was lucky that I had all my pictures backup.

    There have been quite a few reports of the same thing happening to other people but the reason hasn't been pinned down as many people are not having the problem. There have been enough reports to suspect that there is a problem somewhere.

    Should I just take the sd card out? It will not let me put anything on it. Will I be able to use it again? it's a 32g card or do I need to get a new 1?

    Some of the reports have mentioned that the card ended up damaged but you can attempt a reformat.

    It might be something simple like the card not being fully seated in the holder. I would check that it is properly snapped into the holder.

    Could be a number of things and a quick fix if you have a Mac computer is to go to insert your SD card in the slot or card reader then go to disk utility, then click repair disk.

    On a PC, you can insert the SD card in a card reader and check to see if the card is still good (that is, can you see its file structure). I don't think Windows has the exact equivalent of "Disk Repair" however.

    However, there is a utility that might be similar:

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/check-your-hard-disk-for-errors

    Proceed at your own risk on this one.

    I tried the card and its no good. I called Verizon and they are sending me a new 32g sd card and told me to do a master reset to see if that will do anything. I don't think it is. If Iit does I will post to tell yal if it does or not.
