Scanning unmounts my SD card

Recommended Posts

I have used this app on multiple devices over the years, as its the only one I know of that can read music from an SD card.

it worked fine on my previous phones for the most part, but now that I have upgraded to a Galaxy S7, I am having some major issues...

I have inserted the same SD card that was in the other phones, with around 30 gigs of music on it. I will open Poweramp, and select the SD card folders, then run a scan. the scan will take a long time, and will often crash, resulting in the SD card becoming completely undetected on my phone. I then have to restart the phone to have the SD card detect, and try again. it only finishes successfully about 25% of the time, and sometimes breaks later anyway.

I have opened it up and made sure the SD card is in properly. It only comes unmounted when I do a scan. I think the app is doing something to break it.

As it's been used on multiple devices it might be an idea to clean up the SD Card. Connect it to your computer and copy everything off it, reformat the card, and copy everything back again.

It might be worth a try to unmount, reformat the SD card, refill it, then mount again.

If that doesn't do then try another card.
