I have been through many a Samsung phones and always had corrupt sd cards in exfat. One day I saw a thread that said convert to fat32 and have never had a problem since.

Thanks for all the advice.

I could read the card in recovery but it failed to format there.

I tried to format in windows but my only options were NTFS or exFAT, no FAT32. But this failed anyway also.

Downloaded a SD format application but this said the card was write protected and to move the lock switch, obviously MicroSD has no switch like standard SD.

So next I deleted all the files on the card and ran h2testw test. This failed and reported card is probably faulty.

Then I checked the contents of the card again and all the original files were back again, so it's definitely 'Donald Ducked'. I was able to get all my files backed up and fortunately I had my photos already thanks to Dropbox & G+.

So I will now look at getting MyMemory to replace it but my fear is they will want me to return the faulty card but it has sensitive information on it that I can't delete. Any ideas on how I can wipe it?

How did you attach the card to the pc? Try a usb card reader and then try again. If still problems download mini partition tool (Google) and delete the partition. You can then wipe it properly.

when i connect my phone to charger
Its been few days i am noticing when i conmect my phone to charger it says 'sd card removed unexpectedly or either it suddenly stops showing content from my phone, then i have to go to settings unmount/mount the sd card frkm storage option and then it shows the content even when charging, or sometjmes it doesn'fshow option for that so on that case i have to restart my phone. What could be the possible reason and solution to that. It was fine on 4.4.4 now i am on 5.0.2 all stock htc one m8 h/k edition with sim unlock and s-off via sunshine.
