I own a B7610, and it has a internal 2gb (My Storage). I was curiously browsing the \Windows, and I accidentally tap a file (Don't remember what it is) and suddenly....

My Storage is gone!!!.... Nothing in the file explorer.... :P

Checked memory settings and it just indicated that My Storage is 0.Mb and can't be reset/format...

Tried hard reset, flashed the phone, crossed my fingers etc. but all failed, My Storage was gone...

So I took a deep breath and refreshed my mind on all things WinMo, got some ideas and tried it,

And it worked!

So I'm sharing this with i8000 users for I read some were having problems with i8000 disappearing "My Storage"...hoping my method will work for them too...

So here it goes, but with this method, you will not able to retrieve the files in My Storage, 'cause it will be formatted....

1. Check if Samsung Settings Still recognize My Storage even if it tells 0mb and cannot be formatted.
2. Download NueStorage Storage Manager 1.1 http://www.samsung-o...tach;attach=794
3. Install to your device. You will find it inside Windows default Settings. Run NueStorage.
4. In the drop down option, find your "missing" My Storage (look for the size either 2gb for B7610, 8-16gb for i8000) usually it is named DSK3:MMC Card. If you found your "My Storage" in the list, the problem is not hardware related. Choose it.
5. Now under Partitions, tap Properties
6. Partition Properties will open. Try to choose "Mount". If it is successful, soft reset and check if you got your My Storage back. If not, continue reading...
7. Close Partition Properties. Then under Filesystem, choose DSK3:MMC Card( or whatever name your 8gb-16gb gives) and tap Format.
8. It must successfully format the storage. If not, try again.
9. Do a hard reset or Flash a ROM....
10. Turn on device,finish device Set up and don't skip anything. Wait for a pop message telling if you want to format your storage card (which is actually My Storage) to make it usable or something like that. Click yes and wait for format to finish.

(If you waited long enough and there is no such message, continue with the guide)

11. Go to USB connection and set connection to Mass Storage, choosing My Storage as the mass storage device. Click ok.
12. Connect your device to your PC (via usb). If all goes well, the PC will recognize My Storage (as mass storage), but it will ask you to format it, Click Yes and Format.

13. After successfully formatting My storage via PC, safely disconnect it from the computer. Check your device if My Storage is back....and celebrate :P

As far as I can remember, these are the steps I have done to get back "My Storage"... Hope that the above will work on those who have the problem too..

Fell free to ask questions or comments upon my guide... GOODLUCK :P

IMPORTANT NOTE


If nue storage doesn't show your missing "my storage", then there is a high possibility that the problem is hardware related. If that's the case the only solution is bring the phone to a service center for repairs.

thank you so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

I have lost my storage three times, the service engineers just changed the "sub-pda" with the memory card on it.
"sub-pda" is their words, not mine.
But the error came back three times and now I will hopefully get a new phone. I have been waiting for 5 weeks for it so, well, I really want it back.
What really annoys me is that the phone have been at the service center for more than 10 weeks now if you take the previous services into account.
I have not been able to discern any special things I have done when the error occurred.
The first two times I thought it could have something to do with very low disk space on the device memory but the last time I know I had quite allot of space left.

Anybody else have any idea, or is it just a case of bad hardware?

thanks man! i've flashed my o2 with htc sense and its still inside my warranty. so im extracting nb0 files from a mts "orig" 6.5 rom so i can flash it back to factory default. so my warranty wont be void.

my storage is gone also for the second time. factory defect i guess. the first time i lost my storage they replaced it with a brand new phone. now i lost again my storage. so before sending it back to samsung im flashing it back to 6.5 so my warranty wont be void. extracting nb0 file from an mst file coz i cant flash a full mst because my storage is gone.

hope this works.

After 8 months using my I8000 , I got last week same problem: "My storage" is gone.

I wasn't doing nothing special when it happened , just it freezes and after reset all I got error from the programs installed on My Storage , because the start-up shortcut didn't find the application.

I tried Nue Tool and it doesn't see DSK3 at all.
I went to my Bell rep and they sent it back to Samsung to be fixed.
I have to wait between 2 to 4 weeks and I'm stuck with Motorola Razor.

I hope after they fix it , it wouldn't happen again.

I tried all methods in this thread and all have failed in my case. It was working one minute and then when I checked a few minutes later it was gone.

The only thing that I was doing that was out of the ordinary was that I was making large transfers (3gb, maybe 1000 files) from the drive using USB mass storage, and I was tethering via USB at the same time. At one point the phone was accidentally disconnected without safely removing first. When I reconnected it to the PC, My storage was there, and I did a scandisk and no issue was found.

I then kept using the drive for another 1-2 hours and I connected/disconnected the usb several times also (always safely remove), and yet my store was still lost.

This issue seems to be very common. I wonder if Samsung has fixed the issue in newer manufactured phones. My phone was made in late 2009 (check under battery, should be a date there on the sticker like this YY.MM).
