My SD card is not reading my phone.Its keeps saying "sd is blank or has unsupported filesys........" it cuts off by the end of the screen. When I click on it, it wants me to reformat it. I do not want to reformat my sd card. because if I do all my data from SD card would be lost. is there anything I can do to fix my sd card without reformatting it?

Try reading the sd card with a separate card reader on a computer. If that works, copy the contents of the sd card to a folder on the computer. Then you can format the sd card. Then copy the contents from the folder on the computer back to the sd card. I suggest that you copy one folder at a time. That way if there is a corrupt file, you will have a better chance of identifying which one it is.

So you're saying that you tried reading the SD card with a reader on your computer? And the computer reader gave you the same error as your phone? That information wasn't in your original topic. And I do understand you not wanting to format. But if you can't copy the contents using the computer I don't know of any other way.

Hopefully someone else has knowledge of an alternative method.

Maybe not. But I personally don't know of a way to extract and copy the files if the SDcard can't be read by another device like your computer.

We can keep this topic open and see if anyone else has suggestions.
