Another answers by one samsung brightside owner:
I too had this issue, what i did was move all the pic’s/video’s from the SD card to my computer (i used a micro SD card adapter) then placed the SD card back in my Brightside & reformatted the card (there is a selection in the phone to do this).
Then i put the SD card back in my computer & put the Pic’s/Video’s in the named folders & reinserted the card in my phone & presto…Good Luck& presto…Good Luck
