I have a 200GB Sandisk Sd Card, previously formatted vFat32 and working in an old Symbian phone.

Today I thought I'd put it in my SailfishX (, threw in the card and formatted it via settings -> storage -> long press on the card and format.

It seemd to work, though the screen timed out and I did not see the full process.

Now in Sailfish it comes up "Memory card not present" error. Putting it back in my Symbian phone I get a "memory card corrupted" and if I try formatting it "Feature not supported" Linux (Ubuntu) on two laptops (via card slot or usb card reader) does not even recognise that it was inserted.

Any ideas besides "it's dead"? As it was working before the format.

On Ubuntu open Gparted and recreate the whole filesystem, create the partition you like to use and hit apply. After this retry using it on your SailfishOS phone.
