Question Samsung galaxy S3 stopped reading (32gb) SD card


My brother got the new Galaxy S3 and its a verry nice phone. We got a 32gb SDcard for it and it worked perfectly for a few days, untill last week the phone suddenly refused to recognise/detect/read the SD card...

The card still works perfectly fine on a laptop, its only on the phone it doesnt work anymore. My brother doesnt recall doing anything special that could have caused this problem (last thing he did was updating the IMDB android app).

When we tried another (16gb) card and it reads just fine. So its not the phone either?!

Anyone has a clue what could be wrong here and how to fix it?

thank you!
