    Damaged SD Card, Questions

    Hi all, LG ally owner here. It's a terrible phone that I will be upgrading
    once i'm eligible for a discount again in 2 months. I've never had a phone
    which didn't last me the full 2yr contract period before.

    Anyways, here's what has happened. Recently I've been getting notifications
    telling me i'm running low on storage space. deleted all my videos, all my
    pics, and numerous text threads. haven't seen it for maybe a week now. fine.
    but today, i'm getting a "Damaged SD card" notification and it's telling me to
    re-format it. Here are my questions:

    1) which data is stored on the SD card? I don't care about
    videos/pics/media, but i have some saved files in my ColorNote app which I would
    like to keep. And of course, I would like to keep my contacts which I'm pretty
    sure are not stored on the SD card, so I guess I'm really just asking about
    ColorNote and maybe Voxer too (messages and contacts).

    2) Speaking of contacts, should I sync to Backup Assistant or Gmail? I've
    using Backup Assistant (Verizon) but today I went onto the Backup Assistant page
    on the Verizon website and it said my contacts list is empty!!! so I've decided
    to use Gmail from now on, but there doesn't seem to be a quick way to sync all
    of my contacts from my phone onto my Gmail account. WTF. So I actually spent a
    good 20 mins manually transferring my contacts from my phone into my Gmail
    account. So I guess I've already answered my question, but if anyone knows a
    quick way to sync from my phone to GMail, it would be greatly appreciated (for
    future reference). As of now, I believe the only way to do this is to
    import/export using a usb connection (which also does not work right now, i
    cannot turn on usb storage when it's hooked up to the pc for whatever reason.
    again. WTF.) and of course, my SC card looks like it's corrupted and besides i
    do not have an SD card reader for my pc.

    3) Should I re-format my SD card? How else can I fix it?

    Sorry for the rant, but I have never been so thoroughly
    disappointed and aggravated by an electronic product before.

    Thanks.

    Sorry to hear you're having so much trouble. To save contacts to gmail, go to settings> accounts and sync, you should see your gmail account. If sync is off, click on your gmail account and make sure contacts etc are selected. As far as syncing to your PC, make sure phone is in mass storage mode, then your PC will recognize it as a removable disk (Windows), when you look at your drives you should see an extra drive, double click to view files. If you don't automatically get the option for USB modes, drag down notification bar and click USB settings.

    Try another SD to see if your SD is actually corrupt, try your SD in another device. If it works, your card reader may be defective.

    Once you get your contacts backed up, and SD info, do a master reset, that will eliminate any software corruption, which could cause any or all of your problems.
