Unhappy Help me. My Z ultra is frying Sd cards :(

Hi! I got my Z ultra a Month ago. Pretty good device. but after 2 weeks the ZU notifies me that the sd card was removed even it's not. I tried with 3 SD cards and all were burnt instantly neither my ZU nor another device recognize the card. The problem is very popular with the Xperia Z users. I don't know about the ZU. I checked the water indicator (too see if my warranty was voided) but when the phone is with the screen on, the water indicator is lightpink but with direct light is white. Do you guys think that sony will repair//replace my ZU. Here's a photo Please note that in the borders it seems to be pink

I have no idea why your Ultra is killing SD cards, but that water indicator looks white to me.

I haven't seen the pic, but there's no connection between water and fried sd.
SD Cards are amongst the strongest things on earth (joking), but really, I think you'll have to crack one to destroy it.
Anyway, I have both a Z Ultra and a Z, both used with 16, 32 and 64GB cards, and none of those had problems at all.
I dunno, maybe it's the make/model?
