The strange thing is that I'm able to access the ext SD Card on TWRP Recovery, as you can see on the image attached... I even copied a file (backup.txt) into it.

Have you tried another SD card in your phone? EDIT: Nevermind this bit

When you plug the SD card into your handset (do it while it's off) Does the SD Storage show anything?

You could try formatting it in another handset if you have the chance then try plugging it in.

Are you using stock Sammy firmware? Or have you installed a custom kernel? Could be one of those playing havoc with your device if so, back up and revert to stock if you can, retest the SD in there.

Test to see if you can retrieve data from the SD card, i've found that although SD cards show up in windows, when I attempt to copy data to the PC it fails, when I say fail I mean it stops progressing and doesn't copy, particular files appear corrupt.

You could also do a chkdsk /f /r via windows on the SD card, or even a general error check.

chances are one of these things will be the culprit, if none and it's still working in another phone and other cards are working in your device then i'm stumped.

Good luck

Hello mate,

Thanks for answering

I get the same problem: SD Card blank or has unsupported filesystem

You could try formatting it in another handset if you have the chance then try plugging it in
I tested the SD card on another device and it's working fine, also on my windows pc

Are you using stock Sammy firmware? Or have you installed a custom kernel? Could be one of those playing havoc with your device if so, back up and revert to stock if you can, retest the SD in there.
I formatted my device right now and installed Samsung stock firmware with stock kernel. I also tried to get back to stock recovery, then installed CWM and TWRP, but the same problem

I'm starting to think this is a hardware problem, because I tried everything and nothing happened.

Quite an odd one that, i'm a little stumped.

did you try error checking on windows? OR even a format in a different handset? OR a different card in your phone to see if to see if it reads?

On the other hand if the phone isn't that old, return it, 28 day swap should be good if you're in time, otherwise it's back to sammy.

sorry I can't be of more help m8.
