I have a Sony Xperia ZR with a 32gb class 10 microSD card fitted and am having all the same problems as the Samsung users. Card was working fie for approx 3 months and all of a sudden after taking some photos went to check them and the card had apparently been removed form the phone although this is not possible as it is a snug fitin the slot and requires the battery to be removed in order to remove the card. Inserted into card into the adaptor and slotted it into my Win 7 laptop where it was detected initially and I managed to copy all my files from it to the laptop. Then inserted it back to the phone and it was detected and ran for a few hours and then got the same message as previous "the card had been removed unexpectedly" and now will not be detected by the laptop. So I fitted it to my desktop card reader and it was detected but windows said it need formatted so I attempted this but windows could not complete either in quick format or deep format. So I downloaded SD card formatter and installed it to my desktop when I ran it up it claimed that the capacity was only 30.6mB but this cant be so as when I copied the contents off the card the file size was over 8Gb butit was also unable to format the card. At some point I did note that the card appeared to be quite hot, well hotter than I expected. I am quite dissapointed as I always held Sandisk in high regard but after reading about all the problems am rapidly loosing faith. I have approached the retailer regarding a replacement awaiting a reply

I used my 32gb scan disk micro sd for last 2 years on my note 2 first and now on my note 3 too. It way quite good and working until yesterday. All sudden my phone prompted me no card. So I removed it and put in another 2gb which was working fine. Again I connected to its adapter and tried in my pc. As to my dismay pc didn't recognise the 32gb and was fine on my 2gb. Something has caused to corrupt my micro sd. I have important data and images of my 2 years. Can somebody help me to recover my data please. ..

Hi there! I have also recently experienced a similar issue. I was however, using a Lear 32GB microSD card with my Samsung Galaxy Note 2. Like the other poster, I wanted to check for and save, any documents and pictures. So I too selected "Cancel". I have tried removing and re-inserting my card multiple times. I have also tried re-booting my Android device. None of those attempts have been successful. I ended up getting a new microSD card; sorry - it was from Kingston. Why am I mentioning this in a SanDisk forum? Well... this same lack of recognition is also happening with a brand new card, obtained in a sealed packet from a big-name retailer ("The Source"; used to be "Radio Shack" in Canada).
What the heck is going on?? Anyone have any ideas? In a way it's comforting that I am not the only Note 2 user that's experiencing this. The fact it is happening with other brands of microSD card, suggests to me the problem is with the Note 2 devices.
So come on Samsung... How about giving us a brand new Note 4 (when they become available) as a replacement?

Hey guys, I figuered out what to do,
1. insert your prefered microSD card i personally use a sandis ultra plus 16gb class 10
2. Backup your apps and settings throught the backup under settings > backup
3. while under settings scroll to about > reset your phone
4. follow the prompts when they pop up and enter your microsoft credentials
and Voila! readable sd card!
here is the thread through tmobiles T-Force
my guess is that if no peripherals during reset/boot, wont download the software to read sd cards properly
make sure you have wifi available at the time.

Do an open recall (open recall meaning announce it over me dia outlets) or f ace a site ha ck every day till you do. Also I am sueing. Don't give me "well you should have backed everything up" bs because I have. I've backed up on an other sandisk card and that failed on me aswell. Lost the birth video of my daughter. Also lost birth photos and all other photos/videos. I'm pissed and I'm part of anonymous.

I can sympathasize with you...
when a big company has the ability to just open up our individual cards... but give us the run around.. people like you have valid cause to sue... it would be so great if you won.
then 1) you get reward for such a great loss
and 2) this company will endeavor to help us to recover and open up our cards instead of making a 1 way road into them and then not being able to get back into our cards.
if they didn't make a fix they couldn't sale the card or otherwise the FCC along with about another million agencies be on their asses to have that back door...
