Hi guys,*My phone shows SD card is damaged, try reformatting it. It is a transcend class 10 16 gb card. It was fine when I switched it off at night, but at morning it showed this. I tried re inserting, did not work. I was on jelly bean 4.2.1.(I9300XXUFMB3_I9300OJKFMB3_ILO).I wiped the whole thing and installed 4.1.2.(I9300XXEMB5_I9300OXAEMB5_BTU).Still the same. PC also do not recognize external sd card on connecting the phone via cable. About to try to connect via adapter. Should buy one..So guys why did this happen? I dont have any backup of my external sd card so I dont want to reformat it.

well, if the pc doesn't recognize it with the adapter, you'll have to format it

Personally I always format it in the phone, it is what the facility is there for, and remember to always unmount your card before removing, whether it be from phone/pc/card reader, ditto, if connected to pc via mtp/ptp.....Always unmount from the pc

Google the SD formatting tool, download it and format the card. If that doesn't work then the card is toast and you'll need a new one.
