    Ate my photos off SD card?

    On vacation, brought my tf300t to edit photos.

    I had spent the day taking photos as one does on vacation, and plugged my SD card in through the docking keyboard once I got back to the hotel.

    I waited for Gallery to load all the photos off my 64gb chip, and only my photos from before noon showed up. I started doing basic editing expecting the rest o my photos would show up.

    No such luck. Now the post noon photos I had flipped through a little before pulling out the chip and putting into the tf300t. Now when I put my chip back into the camera, no post-noon photos.

    Anyone have any ideas? Only thing I can think of is Asus didn't like large files/folder and just blanked it. Or the card has a bad sector?

    Ideas to save the photos: use one of the many programs designed to save accidentally-deleted files from SD cards. Don't try to write to the card before you do, it may well overwrite some of the pics you want to save. Success rates vary widely with these programs, not because of the programs, but because so many things can cause the data loss. Get a new card if you need to take more photos. But I'm not aware of a good program to do this in Android; anyone else know one?

    Ideas to save the card: once you're sure you have everything recovered that is recoverable, format the card. You can do this in almost any operating system, Windows, Linux, Android, whatever. If you use your 300 to format it, ES File Explorer makes it pretty easy, or you should be able to do it from Settings>Storage (depending on what ROM you're using). Your camera should also have a format function, and I recommend you use that after a standard format in a computer.

    If you have a microSD card reader for your PC, Recuva is a good program for recovering files, but my guess is that your continued use of the card probably made most of not all non-recoverable.

    Quite correct. But it doesn't cost much to try. I'm sort of assuming we have no PC available, as we're on vacation and using the 300 for photo editing. But I just searched Play Store for "file recovery for android" and it returned a full page of apps, and a button "see more", and nearly all or all were free. IIRC Recuva is also if a Windows PC is available. (Just checked: yes Recuva has a free version, but it will not run on Windows tablets (RC versions), just PCs from XP on.)

    I'm guessing (all I can do without testing) filesystem corruption, due to either improper removal of the card or a funky (very tech term, that) reader in the camera or dock.

    Geek stuff: If for any reason a removeable storage device is interrupted while writing to its directory, data loss is almost sure to occur, because now your OS can't find the files on it. This is why Windows announces "safe to remove" device, Linux (and by bloodline Android) announce "unmounted", and you should power down your camera before removing the SD card. File recovery programs attempt to find any files anywhere on the card (or external HDD, whatever), and re-write that directory or copy the files elsewhere. Sometimes it even works.

    Good points Kevin. Too many issues to reliably say from this distance.

    Doesn't really matter at this point. Procedures remain the same: Don't try to use the card until after file recovery is attempted, then format it. If it is a bad card, the format procedure should find that. If it's just corrupted, it should fix it.
