So im force to buy another copy (scandik 32gb) at a big chain store retailer as it looks legit. After a while my 2nd copy get the same problem it cant be read or stated as blank SD card. Finally i bought my 3rd copy in Singapore airport in one of my trip, this time also scandisk 32gb but the android version. It works great for around 3 months until it died out yesterday!!! It is very frustrating!!
So guys if there is any solution pls post it T.T
I guess if the card is completely dead, then there is no fixing it, since U can't even format it or anything. I did full format (not quick) to exFat yesterday (it was in fat32 originally), which took 1h+ to complete, but haven't had problems since. There is definitely something fishy going on. Yesterday it would complain every few mins about sd card being unexpectedly removed or cannot read on its own (typical symptoms of failing sd card), but now after formatting it works perfectly.
Well, since somebody also had problems with samsung card, I cannot even blame sandisk anymore. I daily access my memory card, but still - it shouldnt go bad in 6 weeks. I still have few 2gb cards several years old, one of which even survived swimming in Adriatic sea. Either this new cards quality control is crap compared to old ones, and/or Note II/SIII are killing sd cards over time, the length of which is pure gamble.
So, to all the people that never had problems, that's great for U, but that might and probably will change.
offtopic: Yesterday i was sure i need new sd card, so i found SDHC Samsung 32GB C10 (MB-SSBGA/EU) for 20eur in local store, which i think is a bargain for eu. Any thoughts on it? I have no intention on waiting for warranty claim if sandisk fails completely.
