At least it doesn't appear the 'unmounted sd card' message.

Sorry, but in fact, the Rescan Media program doesn't fix the problem
I'm thinking to buy a new mobile phone, but I'm sure that it won't be Samsung.

I have 2 32gb cards and a few 16s and 8s and I've never had one issue with any of them, I know there are some really low grade cards out there but you get what you pay for. Sure it can be a device that ruins one but that can happen with any device its not just one company.

You would have to be really ignorant to believe that Samsung is out to ruin your stuff considering HTC won't even let you use them at all now and personally I'll never buy a HTC device again if that's the direction they want to continue doing business, you might as well buy an iPhone.

My SanDisk 32gb was killed today. For the last couple of days, have been getting several 'SD card removed unexpectedly' notifications. Wish I'd seen this thread before, would of recognised this as a sign of it being on its way out PC wouldnt format it.

EDIT: Tried it out this morning in an adapter in my camera. Working fine and was able to transfer the contents off it via cable! Phew

It sounds like a mixture between Sandisk cards and the kernel to me.

Hope this helps.

I will second that,
Altho i have a Transcend 32gb card, but Perseus seems to solve the issue.

Re: Galaxy S3 - the sd card destroyer
It's odd but I use the Siyah Kernel and my card got corrupted. I use the Perseus and it's all fine.

Re: Galaxy S3 - the sd card destroyer
Never had a problem with any genuine SanDisk card in any device. Hundreds of cards in hundreds of devices over the years including semi-pro photography where obviously card reliability is critical. I strongly suspect that the majority of these reports are of cheapo ebay/amazon market etc cards.

Re: Galaxy S3 - the sd card destroyer
I have had this happen to me today. 32gb SanDisk Ultra bought from mymemory.co.uk on 04/01/2013.

Lost all last nights photos from a top night out! Previous photos automatically sync with Dropbox, thank God!

Re: Galaxy S3 - the sd card destroyer
I always run h2testw on my cards to check they have genuine capacities. A few years back I bought a few 8gb cards from various online retailers including the likes of eBay and amazon marketplace and online stores. When tested most of the cards turned out to be either fake capacity or failed during a stress test. Now I only buy retail packaged branded cards from big name retailers like amazon (when sold directly by amazon or fulfilled by Amazon) or argos, etc (my SanDisk 64gb was half price when I bought it with my phone at argos) then I test the crap out of them before entrusting photos to them.

I can only recommend that anyone buys from well established retailers that have genuine supply chains and something to lose if they were found to be selling fakes. Then stress test the card, try to break it. If it does then you dodged the bullet. Date the card, (label it) and once it's a few years old bin it or give it a throw away use coz these things only last about a 100,000 write cycles anyway.

Most importantly though, if you value your photos, videos etc please backup. There are lots of free and low cost solutions for this. I personally learned the hard way and a hard drive crash cost me 1year of my son's "baby photos", the wife and I were gutted but never again. If every device I own blew up right this moment I wouldn't lose a shred of valuable data.

Remember if you don't have 3 copies of it, it doesn't exist, 1 copy always needs to be off site I. E. Online and preferably 2 copies online with different storage providers

Sorry if that's a bit of a lecture but if it saves just 1 persons irreplaceable data then it's worth the page space here
