Default [Q] Galaxy S3 not reading any SD cards?

My i9305T Galaxy S3 is not reading micro SD cards at all. I have tried using the cards in my computer, and they work fine. My phone, on booting has a notification that states "Preparing SD card; Checking for errors.", Then after a minute or two, has another notification stating that the SD card is safe to remove. I have tried with multiple SD cards, they all work in a PC, but not my phone.

so the phone shows nothing when browsing trough your files with a filemanager?
In that case Are you using the stock rom? some custom roms may have problems with the reading of big (64 GB) MicroSD cards.
