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!
