    External SD card is not recognizing in my Samsung galaxy note 2. What to do?

    I recently rooted my Samsung galaxy note 2. I have 2.3.4 and have installed the cyanogens mod. For some reason it just when I try to go into external SD card then it says 'folder is empty'. I will go in Settings>Storage, to know how much of the external SD cards GB used, it says: 'Not available'. I canít understand anything. Can I get some help?

    As per your query...

    -->In your device external Sd card is not accessing properly..For that check once whether your sd card is damaged or else slot problem..

    -->Some times slot may be not connect your sd card for that replace it with new one..

    -->And then if your sd card is affected with virus means its wont connect so better check once and scan with anti virus software.

    -->If its not responding properly means format your sd card and connect it now surely it ill connect to your device..

    -->Install driver software and refresh your device..

    -->And then upgrade your device with latest version android os Jelly Bean..

    <<Hope you got it..Thank you>>

    Re: External SD card is not recognizing in my Samsung galaxy note 2. What to do?

    hello sir ;
    As you said that your device is not showing the memory available in the External SD card hence it is not mounted in the device .
    This type of the errors occurs only due to 2 reasons .
    Either the SD card is not inserted properly in the device so switch Off your device and then plug out the SD card and then insert it again properly and
    then restart the device .
    Then Open
    Settings>>>>Storage>>>>Mount the SD card
    then open it in my files .
    If the problem still persists then the SD card is damaged .
    so you have to purchase a new one ....


    Thank you........................

    There may be some virus contain on your external sd card.
    Firstly you should connect your sd card through card reader to pc.
    And scan your external sd card.
    Or better to format it and then place it to your device.

    If still getting same issue then your new card is damage or not working.
    Replace your new card from your shop from where you have borrow.
