Re: scandisk 32gb Micro card is not detected by phone and unable to format in PC

Hi I have copied all my files and data to a brand new Scandisk 32 GB card I have inserted into my Samsung S2 phone, I was careful to unmount and mount the card, After some use, S2 suddenly request for card to be formatted, I press cancel and then then there were no messages until a few weeks of use it kept coming back , Now it totally cant be recognised, I put into a card reader for my PC and no card was detected and I put it into my camera as well it is not detected

 I have 6 months of pictures stored in there m I want to recover these photos and other files I have copied to the disk as I use my phone as a storage device, Please can anyone advise? Thank you

The majority (if not all) of these issues seem to be ocurring with the Samsung (particularly the Galaxy and Note) phones. It's imaginable the problem lies with the phones themselves, rather than with the Sandisk cards.

 

Has anybody explored that possibillity by questioning Samsung's Customer Service/Tech support?

Re: 32gb Micro SDHC card is not detected by phone and unable to format in PC

Hi I'm also having the same issue on my Note 2. I bought the 32GB from a reputable local store just a few months ago. After I've copy my file to the memory card, it work perfectly for almost a month. Then, I started receiveing different kinds of messages like : a blank SD card was inserted. The card contains some invalid format. jIt is asking me to format the card. When I tried to format the card using the phone, pc, and mac, it is not allowing me to do so. Now, the card reader can't even recognized the card.

Re: 32gb Micro SDHC card is not detected by phone and unable to format in PC

I'm having the same issue.  I have a Sprint Galaxy S3.  On 3/4 my phone went through some updates and I am on Android version 4.1.2.  That evening, my phone shut down because the battery went too low (first time...phone doesn't get a lot of use).  After charging on 3/5, about mid-day, I got a notification that the card was unmounted.  I've tried remounting the card on the phone & also tried reading the card on a pc and mac....nothing.  The card is no longer recognized.

 

I'm not sure if the update or the battery loss contributed, but my card is now MIA.  I bought it on Amazon and will see if I can get a refund/replacement.

I am having the same issue. Does anyone know what is going on with these micro SD cards. I am hoping to get my money back or a new one. I was able to open the card from my computer and found a folder called "LOST.dir" .  I copied files and recovered most of my pics. I am changing the file extension name for every picture  that was saved in that card.

Dear, i had the same problem with 64 GB and solved it with Installing this update to add support for the exFAT file system format and it worked fine with me without even formatting the card

 

please try it

The problem manifests itself with the mobile device first, not the PC. Installing exfat support (if you insist on using windows) may help with recovery but not with the fundamental problem that the phone / tablet can't use the card. this Article may be of interest to posters.

 

As for people suggesting that it's a Samsung problem, whilst I'm sure the fact that it does appear to be predominantly Samsung devices the cards are playing up in, the very fact that Sandisk have implemented a manufacturing fix would point to the problem being at least partly theres.
