Weird file names in my SD card?? - 01-30-2014, 07:06 PM,

I put my SD card in to a card reader to copy music and video files, then I put it back to my Motorola Droid 3 it works for a while with no problem. The Motorola Droid 3 was turned off because it was already low in battery and when I turned it on I can no longer locate my files and when I checked my SD card in file manager all I see was a weird file names that cannot be opened.
Is my SD card infected by a virus? Or there is something wrong with my Motorola Droid 3 or the SD card itself?

Have anybody faced similar issue? HuhHuh

Hey Chiranjivi Nagpal, I have found this to work for me.

■ Format the card on your PC or Mac, to NTFS file system.

■ Download Paragon NTFS / HFS apk app for your Android device without any NTFS app for the android, the android WILL NOT recognize the inserted SD card format as the android only recognizes FAT file system.

■ Put the Micro SD card into the device and restart the device (if the card icon shows in the notification bar, bottom right, ignore).

■ Go to and open on Android Paragon NTFS / HFS tool apk and check disk / format using the android app.

■ Restart device again, with SD card inserted, leave card inserted and connect Android device to PC, the External Disk should now be available formatted to NTFS.
