I was using a Transcend 32GB Class 4 sd card Since Sept 2012 and
from a week or two had been getting the "sd card removed unexpectedly" error,
I suspected it to be a Rom issue, but today the phone froze and after a reset its not detecting the card, neither is it being detected by the PC.
Its within warranty so will try to claim it. All the data is lost and didnt take a backup
But still dont believe S3 directly has something to do with it, probably with my usage or something else.
I used to do a lot of gaming and mobile used to get real hot (50-55C),
and the sd card socket on S3 is placed right where it gets hot, can be reason, altho just a guess.
I did a chkdsk after reading this
, in cmd and it gave an error at the beginning but somehow the card was detected by PC altho was blank/formatted. Maybe this may help some1 else too. Now im trying to recover data.
