Hey guys. Today i decided to treat my X8 by buying a 8GB class 4 micro sd card to replace the stock 2GB micro sd card...all went well ! Within half an hour i copied & pasted everything out of my old card and into the new. That is until i tried to play some songs when i found that none of my songs appear...AT ALL ! Then i tried going into gallery. Same thing :( !!! I need help with this cuz i don't want to know that i wasted all that money on something that doesn't work T-T

P.S. : Running GDX V21, Alfs kernel V04. I've tried formatting it and THEN pasting the files from my old card. Still the same :(

P.S.P.S : By "my" X8, I mean my friends one which, in a few days or weeks will be mine ;)

open file explorer in the phone and look if there is something on the card. if you see all your folders and files, try to reboot your phone or install this from the maket.
if you don't see the files on your sd card, try to format the card from the settings in phone, not with pc
hope this will help you :)

there might be 2 solutions that I know:

1) Sdcard or the files may be corrupted. - Try to format the sdcard and put just one picture(a picture that you can view without any problems on pc) and see if you can view it.

2)nomedia - make sure there isn't any ".nomedia" file in the root of sd card or check in the folders where your music is store.

HOPE THAT HELPS :D

get a card reader and try it with your computer if those files are really important... you could also try one of the many data recovery tools.. just google it..

Ok...after ALOT of experimenting i finally pin pointed the prob....i used this app called Rescan Media Root...they say that every boot is slow because yr phone is scanning all the media files (Media Scan)...if you disable it, it'll speed up boot time ! But what happens in my case is it disabled the scanning, forever...so it never bothered to scan the sd card for my media files :S...after i reenabled it, it worked :D !

    Use the pc. There 2 types of format. FAT AND ntfs. Have you tried both? Also try quick and the regular one.
