Re: cannot format micro sd, believe me, i tried everything

My 64GB ultra micro sd developed this problem too, i tried everything and still can't find a solution.  It started about 5 monthes ago i was watching a video on my Galaxy note 8.0 and suddenly the the tablet closed everything and said the memory card is corrupted.  I couldn't access it until i restarted my note then it started functioning normally.  I noticed the problem afterwards when pics and songs disappeared after i moved them into it and things i delete are brought back. Since then I've been trying every way possible to format it but nothing worked.

I too wanted to share my story so that nobody else buys it until a solution is found.

I didn't use it that long almost for only a year or less but because i bought it earlier before using it i couldn't use my warranty any more.

Your card has a 7 year warranty. Are you saying you bought it longer ago than that? I doubt it, since they aren't that old.

Just called Sandisk support, and they said all their products have a 10 year warranty.  My replacement will be delivered when they get the bad one returned, which they will collect in the next day or so.  Solved!

Re: cannot format micro sd, believe me, i tried everything

eventhough this problem is a past few years ago. i just want to share how i fixed my microSD. i encountered all the problems that mentioned here. i tried formatting my micro to a different OSes, bunch of softwares which gve me the same error. then i said to myself i got a rooted htc phone which has an 4EXT recovery on it. i got 3 samsung device that has twrp and i never got my micro to get fix even cwm. so after almost a day banging my head trying to fix it. i inserted my micro to my old htc phone, and went to recovery, at first boot up it gve me an error that my micro sd won't get mounted. so i just let it boot up and when i'm inside the 4ext recovery i pick format sdcard. and it won't gave me an error. after i'm done formatting my micro i put the microsd to an adapter and check it on my linux and the red exclamation point was gone. so try it for yourself guys! 4ext.net goodluck!

I bought the same card. Same issue after about 2 years.  They are letting me RMA the card, and will hopefully send me a replacent. Not fun.

Re: cannot format micro sd, believe me, i tried everything

Hi everyone, I am also using a Samsung Galaxy Note 2, with a Sandisk 64GB micro sd card. I am facing the same problem as you. After using the camera, the images / videos are not captured. And old images cannot be deleted even though I thought I had successfully deleted it using my phone or computer. Is the micro sd corrupt or my Note 2 has gone cranky?

Re: cannot format micro sd, believe me, i tried everything

Well same thing happened to me. I tried the default SD formatter of a PC but didn't work. I tried EaseUS partition master, SD card Formatter and so many others even Aparted on android. My friend advised me to use a java phone to format it, I put the SD card into the old Nokia C2-00 I had and it worked. I formatted it and started using the card on my phone.
