Default [Q] Phone water damaged, cannot mount Micro SD any longer?

Long story short, my phone suffered a bit of water damage. Everything is operational except for my MicroSD card reader. It will detect when I have a Micro SD inside of the slot, but it will NOT mount it no matter what. I've formatted it to every format I could think of and still nothing. I've also tried multiple Micro SD's. Any advice?

It will also occasionally mount and detected storage and such, but not want to write to it.

Replace the sd/sim reader, how else would you repair hardware failure?

It's essentially a few people graciously answering the same repeating of immature, lazy, demanding questions from the masses.

Nobody searches. Nobody reads the first posts or titles of threads. Nobody even looks at posts a couple above their own.

Wasn't necessarily sure if it was hardware failure or not.

One last question, does the i747 and the I9300 have the same sim/sd reader?
