Apologies firstly for my ignorance and secondly for not having managed to fix this without having to post on it. I have checked other similar queries on this and tried various solutions suggested but haven't been successful as yet.
So, a couple days ago, I noticed my pics had disappeared. The phone said "A Media Card has been insert that contains errors" and I tried to repair them, but as others have found, "Media Card Repair Failed".
When I plugged both the phone, and then the media card via a card reader, into my laptop, the "camera" folder was simply a Unix file, not a folder anymore, and obviously no contents. So is the problem the card, or is the instructions for the camera missing?
I've tried taking the battery out a few times to reboot - no effect. I've tried "repair" repeatedly and that doesn't work. I've not managed to re-format the card so do let me know how exactly to do that via the phone, if you think that's the best option. All suggestions welcome.

Thanks - I think it has worked. The problem with repairing etc happened before I plugged it into the computer but whatever. I knew the pics were gone but hopefully everything will work now, and I'll back up the content more frequently in future.

I had the same problem with my 9900. I had an app world update for facebook which required a reboot. Upon reboot completion, the memory card error message appeared and repairing attempts failed.
I did not lose my photos however, as they were still stored on the memory card; the phone just wouldn't recognize them! So I took out the micro SD, put it into its adaptor and saved all of the image, music, etc... files to my computer and then reformatted the card.
After reformatting I put the files I wanted to keep back onto the card and then put the card back into the phone and it worked great.
hopefully this saves someone from panic, best of luck with your BBs!

Hi I have done all that but my computer is saying there are no photos on the card now and I am so upset.....do you think they are definitely gone or is there some other way of checking? ?
