How to fix the error?

The best way to tackle this issue is to run a check disk scan on your SD card. Simply run command prompt and launch a check on your SD card that should be attached to your PC. The command to type into the CMD window is: chkdsk E: /r and hit enter to run the command, bear in mind that E should be the drive letter of the SD card which may be different according to the amount of drives you have connected to your PC, this should fix the issue for some users and the SD card will be able to be read again by your Android device.

To fix this error another way which is easier is to actually format the SD card, although in most cases trying to do so from your phone will result in the process failing.

So connect the SD card to your computer and go to My computer and right-click and format the SD card, be warned that this process will result in all data from your SD card to be erased. When you place it back into the phone it should now work without the error mentioned.
