I have this problem aswell, already thrown a 32gb card in the bin.
After reading this,
I would like to know if there is any official word on this yet...

Not as far as I'm aware, response from SanDisk has been nada, But a lot of people are recieving RMA's with no problem (although you may have to post card back at your expense). I myself have recieved a replacement card, but that was direct from the retailer (play.com marketplace seller). The annoying thing with the silence from SanDisk is that I have no way of knowing if my replacement card (manufactured in jan 2013, rev 8) is pre-fix or not.
Personally I'll buy my cards from other manufacturers in future, unless SanDisk decide to come clean about this issue. Please feel free to join the discussion over at XDA on this matter.

hi, i had the same issue as you.
what i did was first use Disk Utilites on my mac to erase the sd card.
and then i put the card back into my samsung galaxy note 2 phone and it would still not recognize it.
i then, hooked my phone to an outlet so that it could charge and immediately the card was recognized.
so maybe try charging your phone and this might help you?

But as we have no idea of when the fix was implemented and the replacement cards appear to be same hardware revision as the failing ones, you will have no idea if your new card will fail similarly! Unless SanDisk would care to issue an official statement on the issue

Same issue - Sandisk 32GB MicroSDHC in Samsung Galaxy S3. Going to try the "exFat" install to see if I can recover data - although the linked install is for XP (I'm on Windows 8).
Seems like this is a fairly common problem and has been for a while; shame on Sandisk/Samsung for not sorting it.

Similar experience. 32gb class 4 scandisk sd card in my Samsung Ace. After 5 months the phone reported "no card installed." Card reader connected to pc also found "no card connected." Scandisk are aware of a problem with some cards and offered replacement which should be reliable. Good response, but I'm still stuck with an hour or two setting everything up again.
