have you tried my solution ?

I don't have any external SD Card reader.

When the same issue occurred in my Moto G Play, the SD card was not recognized by any computer (pc or Mac) that I  used to access the data on the card.

That's your decision to buy a 5$ card reader and to save your data (and sd card) :)

 

I believe your pc and mac could properly mount the sd card, but could not read the content, since it is encrypted.

But here, the procedure is not to connect the card reader to a pc, but to the phone itself, in order to force it to clean up its SD card index (or something). Give it a try.

Well, I haven't a 'female to male micro USB' either, and at US$ 19.99 it's too steep :)
Your method is worth a try though.
Anyway the best (only?) insurance is a frequent backup of the SD card content.

Re: SD Card Missing Please Reinsert

It's a pain in the backside, especially as the occurence is becoming more frequent, but a workable solution I have found is to switch off my phone and remove the micro SD card, insert the micro SD card into my computer, using a full size adapter (if you try and look at the contents of the card it will probably say it is empty because the computer can't read it), and then format the card as NFTS.  On reinserting the micro SD card in the phone and switching the phone back on, everything is back where it is supposed to be.  The computer will likely flash up a warning about all data being lost when formatting, but it hasn't been on the number of occasions I've done it.

 

When I've done the above but without switching off my phone, where I've used non-stock alarms and ringtones, I've had to reassign them all again.  Turning the phone off first seems to make this step unecessary.

 

I hope that helps.

Congrats, dude! it actually work! My SD stopped again to work after a month or so, but this was apparently due to a bug in the facebook app. After uninstalling it, and doing again the procedure with the micro USB+ reader everything worked again, and this even eventually re-installing the facebook app.

Thank you so much! A toast!

I have found this probable solution:  Gopi Kumar 7說:
This is a well discussed and easy to fix bug... Disconnect USB cable, go to Settings, Apps, and Show System Apps and find External Storage and Media Storage and clear data and cache on each one and reboot, then give it 5 min after full boot up to rebuild media databases and connect to USB and select MTP. Should be good to go.

Hey guys, I had the problem for a couple of hours. I tried connecting the SD card with a micro SD adapter to the PC. When you put it in the pc and the pc recognizes it. You pull it out and put it back in your phone. 

 

--it works on my Moto G4 plus hopefully it'll help you too

Re: SD Card Missing Please Reinsert

Hello everyone.

 

Having the same problem here, with a Moto G 3rdGen running Android 6.0.1.

I ve set a SunDisk 16Gb card as internal storage and suddelny stopped reading it.

Now it says "checking" upon insertion of card and then Sdcard not inserted or sometimes says "corrupt".

 

I have some very importand data that i d like to save from the sd card and don t know how.

I've tried everyting i ve read on the site but nothing seems to work.

 

Note that it is the second time this haw happened to me. The first time i thought it was the cards problem.

 

From what i understand, sd cards are not suitable for such use (as internal storage) due to the many read/writes on them.

 

Is there any way to copy the key from the phone and try to read the card in another device?

 

when i insert the card to a card reader on a WIndows pc, it seems to recognize that something is inserted but does not see the card at all.
