Well, if the card is blank, then ID3 tags aren’t the issue.
Amazon is very reliable and reputable, plus the fact that you appear to have the full memory space available on a 32GB card (29.1GB if I recall correctly) is reassuring that you don’t have a counterfeit card.
I would try putting a few files on it and see what happens. Maybe searching all that blank space and not finding anything hurt the poor player’s little brain.
It is still possible of course that the card is defective as Saratoga implied though.
