Purchased a 128GB micro SDHC for my Sony A6000 from Mediamarkt in Germany last month.
After 5 days into my holliday and after a considerable ammount of pictures the card failed.
I used the original SanDisk SD to Micro SD adapter in the Sony A6000.
I have tested the 128GB micro SDHC at home with stills and video to make certain it was in working order, no issues were encountered.
I play back the pictures and movies every evening to verify quality and compositions etc.
On day 5, during playback in the Sony the Sony genererated a error message that it was unable to read the card and the card should be re-inserted.
After re-inserting the card the Sony A6000 did not recognise the card.
The 128GB micro SDHC was very hot as I removed it from the Sony A6000 camera.
The card is not recognised by my Apple MBP, Mac Mini or Samsung mobile phone.
The 128GB micro SDHC always becomes very hot (to hot to touch) when inserted in the camera.
I placed great trust in SanDisk and Sony and I tested my setup before leaving for holiday.
5 Days worth of images gone, endangered animals, volcano hike, great sunsets, personal photos all lost…
Normal SD cards have the chip in the centre and the Sony A6000 has a metal plate on top and below the SD card that could function as a heat sink in case of a temperature increase. The SanDisk adapter places the 128GB micro SDHC at the top of the SD card slot. Sony has no metal parts to take any temperature increase at the edge of the SD adapter where the micro SDHC is located. The 128GB micro SDHC most likely got overheated in-camera during playback untill it self distructed…
Any suggestions help welcome.
