Corrupted Image Files on Motorola Atrix 4G

Got an Atrix 4G last summer.  Lately I've noticed that many of the pictures I took (and stored to a 32GB SD internal memory card) are now corrupted.  I cannot open them, cannot download them a view them - nothing. What gives?

 

Is it possible the memory card is bad?

 

Is it something that I should be doing after taking a picture to make sure that it's saved / stored properly?

 

I'm really mad about this becasue it appears I've lost a lot of precious pictures!

Spoiler
I have the same problem.    I'm going to bite the bullet and format the card and see if that helps.   My phone has been a mess since I took the photos.

I had the same issue on an HTC Inspire... I think it's an android issue or maybe a damaged SD card. I formatted the SD card and it works fine now. I also back everything up to Google+ just in case.

Could be a bad sector on the card. There are data recovery programs out there that can help if this is indeed the case.
