my wifes 32gb sandisk also crapped out. didn't work in her phone, my note II, or pc in several different readers. tried for a few days and nothing. i put it in the pc a week later and up pops the card. quickly d/l everything off the card.

I can't believe a reliable card made by Sandisk is giving issues, guess I'll get a samsung card next time.

Re: Micro SD Card Problems
Had the same issue with my card, removing and re attaching constantly. Got SanDisk to replace it, just took about 7 days turnaround time. New one is still working fine. Let's hope it stays that way.

My Sandisk 32 GB also had this issue. Can you expand on the steps you took to get Sandisk to replace your card?

Re: Micro SD Card Problems
My 64 and 16 are both great. Only the 32 is having an issue. This seems to have a very high failure rate for a reputable chip maker...

Contcted through their website first, then called their customer service number for their site. It will go faster if you tell them it is mounting and un mounting in your phone and doing the same on your computer. Because my computer would register it, I they wanted to wait and see if it would fail on my mac. I believe the response to my online query through their site got me response to send it back. They sent me a packing label and everything.

Sorry to ramble, but go through their site and you will have a new one in about 7 days.

If none of this made sense, sorry, I'm tired. Pm me questions and I will do my best to be more clear. Good luck.

Re: Micro SD Card Problems
I gave up and started to use Dropbox more. I'm not happy about it but it is what it is.

Re: Micro SD Card Problems
I've been having this problem as well. I figured it was just an issue with the phone because the card works ekse where. One thing I've noticed is when it says the sd card has been removed I can go into my files and pull up what I need. I just can't go directly into the app to open it (I.e. gallery or music player).

I have tried everything they suggest to fix it, multiple reformats, both internal and with a computer. Once it starts doing that, it won't stop. It's the card, not sure what, but it's just a bad card.

My new one is working fine, so far.
