My Note8 is about 3mos old and is rooted running on CM11. My 64gig Kignston was inserted on day 1 and left in, working fine. Yesterday the external SD stopped. My file manger, Xplorer, started running very slowly so I shutdown, took out the card and replaced it and restarted. It came back up slowly, 1.5min instead of 1.05. The SD card is NOT recognized when I look in Stettings:Storage but when I removed the card I received the warning about removing it without stopping it. My Galaxy 8 phone has the same type card in it so I swapped them. I can see and use the card in the phone but the Note 8 does not recognize the phones card.

Any suggestions?

Do a factory wipe and see if things go back to normal with the SD... if it does not, it could be hardware or a bug in CM11 version you are running.

By "Factory wipe," do you mean re-install stock firmware or just wipe it an re-install the latest cm-11?

overheating sd card
I had the same problem.
The solution was that the card overheaded by use it.
I can read them in a card reader but not in the Notes 8.
I have exchanged the card and now this card is not so hot in use.

I went through 3 Lexar Micro SD cards (600x class 10) all failed and sent back to Lexar. They kept replacing them but I stopped trying after 3rd card failed. At first I thought it was the cards, but now I think it must have been the Note 8. Once they failed they wouldn't work in any device and they couldn't be reformatted.

SD Card Problems - Solved mine today
Today I had the issue with a 64MB Ultra - Card Corrupt, and it would reformat it appeared and not recognize - saying file system invalid.
I took it out of the Note 8 and tried it in the Note 3, and it worked fine, with all my original files seen, (though teh Note 8 had run through 3 versions of Format Card.
Then I put it back in the Note 8, and it was recognized again, but in "My Files" nothing was showing. I used a program I use called simply ES File Manager, from the Play Store, and it saw my original files on the card (photos, music, videos) Once I opened one of each from within the ES file Manager, the system then saw the card and worked with the files again.
Not sure what trick worked, putting the card in the Note 3, or opening within ES File Manager, but I am back in business after being upset about losing my files. They were all there.
