Yeah.  This is total crap.  Complete LACK of responsiveness on the part of San Disk.  I have seen no posts resolving this anywhere.  Nice customer support.  I have a Galaxy Note 2 which just decided one day to randomly not recognize the stupid SD Micro card and now all music and everything else must be re-loaded.  WHAT A PAIN IN THE A$$...

How's the responsiveness on the part of Samsung? Since this is only happening on their products, seems there's something their phones/devices are doing to kill the cards.

Not just Samsung - had the same problem with my partner's Blackberry 9320 - 32gb Sandisk Micro SD card  just stopped working; not recognised and can't access any of the content on there. It's the reason I am on this forum; just registered to post this.

[ Edited ]

I bought the 16GB Galaxy Note II International Version when it first came out. Bought a 64GB SD card the same day for it. Been using them with no problems ever since. But the past few weeks my phone has been freezing and forcing me to take out the battery. It continued to happen more frequently until for the past few days it would happen at least a few times an hour. Even though I had factory reset it multiple times.

Anyways, I was at the gym today getting ready to dumbell press, I was listening to music through my apple earpods and my phone, which was in my pocket. I leaned back onto the bench and my phone slipped out of my pocket and the headphone jack came out of the phone's socket. When I put it back in, I couldn't play any music, then I noticed that it said that there's a blank card inside. I tried "turning it off and on" and removing and reinserting the SD card but to no avail. Now it's 12AM, I factory resetted my phone again and the SD card is STILL not working.

I would format it if I didn't have my bodybuilding progress photos of myself from last week on it, I just can't have them gone forever, as I've been taking accurate weekly photos for over half a year now nonstop and can't miss a single week.

I'm hoping for a miracle to happen and for it to fix itself.

Re: 32GB Sandisk Micro SD suddenly stopped being recognized by Galaxy S3 phone

Wow... I thought I was a one-off kind of person until I came across this thread. I also bought a SanDisk Ultra 32GB microsd card for my S3. Recently I too got the message that my SD card had been successfully removed...but my phone was sitting there in the case and all. Honestly I thought it was just a blip, a momentary loss of connection or something. I realized today that all of my data is gonzer. I tried to reseat the card, reboot the phone, even removed the battery, but all seems to be a lost cause. I plan on going home and giving the PC a go at it, but after reading this thread I am hesitant that the pc will have any additional success.

 

What's sad is that only 1 in 10 unsatisfied customers ever voice a concern. Based on this statistic, this issue is not uncommon. =(

Re: 32GB Sandisk Micro SD suddenly stopped being recognized by Galaxy S3 phone

Bought SanDisk 32gb microSDHC UHS-I card(for mobile devices) around October 2012. The card worked flawless until 2weeks ago when I suddenly got a notification "bad removal" "card ejected" (the card never left the phone since the beginning). Already familiar with the tons of complaints (xda,Samsung, Sony- forums) regarding this type of card I began to fear the worst and after struggling for 2 days it just gone blank. No device that I triedsees the card. Also the pc can't see it anymore.
28gb on video, documents and pictures, all gone.
The most people I read here on the forum mentioned they owned a Samsung device. I do not.
I own a Sony Xperia T (lt30p) with stock android 4.1.2 jelly bean, not rooted.


In those 2 days I had the card monitored by an app and only one time I had the phone restarted(counts for 1 mount and 1 unmount.
The following stats where logged:

Card mounted: 14 times
Card unmounted: 32 times
Card bad removal: 10 times
Card removed: 3 times
Card ejected: 23 times

Also a lot of other Sony phones have problems regarding these cards failing.

The following I count as just speculation as I can't find any official statement by SanDisk regarding this problem.
I've also read somewhere that SanDisk is aware of these problems and even admitted that a faulty batch went on the market before noticing that there was an bug.

Next monday i'll phone SanDisk and see what they have to say.
I see my data as lost in the meantime.
