Are you using a file manager on the phone or on the pc? 

 

Do you have write protection on? 

 

If you have corrupted files on the card, it could trigger write protection

 

The card could be old, and doesn't support any more write operations.

Are you using the pc to transfer files with phone connected, or removing card from the phone to transfer files?

 

I suggest a different file manager then. I don't have any other suggestions. If you can write to the card other ways, it is not write protected.  I haven't seen this reported by others.

No attachment came through. 

 

I would not test with card formatted internal, this just complicates things. Format card as portable, try testing in another phone? Try testing a different card? Try testing card in a pc/mac? Reboot phone in safe mode? 

 

If card works ok in another device, try resettting phone? 

 

It looks like you tried all but safe mode and reset. To reboot into safe mode, tap the power button until you see power off on screen. Then tap and hold power off (on screen) and a new menu will appear to reboot into safe mode.

 

I assume phone is 100% stock, not rooted or modded?

Same problem, as I insert the SD card the lenovo see's it and I here the sound confirming it. That's it nothing I am unable to see the card in the file explorer, I am unable to transfer anything. It is a new 128g Scandisc, I have looked at the software on the storage and it is working correctly ???? & there are no updates? Anyone!

Hi,

 

Sorry to know about this and thanks for writing to us! Since it's a new SD card, can you format it and check if the issue persists?

 

Let me know how it goes.

 

Regards,

Suman
