Default External microSD card not working

Anyone know what types of microSD cards should work for the S5? I have a Sandisk Ultra 32GB microSD card and it worked and displayed the pictures on it for about 3 minutes before saying it was removed. Re-seating it doesn't even bring it up anymore.

That should work. I'm using a larger card from the same line. Mine is the SanDisk Ultra 64 GB microSDXC Class 10 UHS-1 it works in the S5 and it worked in the S4.

I used a cheap 32gb class 10 store branded SD from microcenter. It works fine.

This is my card and it works perfectly fine for me. Perhaps you got a defective card?

Your card might also be at the end of it's life. These things have a finite number of read/writes before they start to deteriorate. How old is the card? If it is new, then you just have a defective one and should try taking it back.

The card is about two years old. I formatted it on my S3 and copied a bunch of pictures/music/movies over from my computer to it while the phone was plugged in via USB. Now trying to use the same card in my S5 and its been wonky

Used different sd cards and had same issue. Did some research a few days ago b/c was having same issue. . It was reported that S5 had locked write access from other application when intentionally initiated. For example: You can take picture and it will copy to SD care but if you" Folder sync", it will give you error msg that permission is denied.
