Exclamation MICRO SD removed unexpectedly error?


I keep getting this error on my phone after trying to wake it up from stand by "micro sd card removed unexpectedly"
I tried formatting it, and still same problem. I made sure that it's in it's place perfectly, same problem.
I'm not using a cheap sd card, its a SANDISK ULTRA HC card, 32 gig!

Is anyone else having this problem?

No, but I had this problem on a past phone. Mine required replacement. ..the SD card.

Ya I had that same issue with that same card with my galaxy s3. I replaced the card with one specifically designed for Smart phones and the problem went away

I think it may be a card issue as if I remember correctly in some of the threads in the ATT S4 General forum a lot of people have issues with the sandisk cards.

I think it has something to do with Samsung as I have that exact card and never had issues with it in an HTC my touch phone my stepdaughter was using at the time, however I did with my s3 and N2...
