Both were 32GB Lexar class 10 cards. (microSDHC).
Both of these failures were on ICS.
did you run a full format on the cards before using them(no quick format)?
did you format them to exfat from FAT32 or vise versa?
when i bought my samsung 64GB card it was defaulted to exFAT and i did a full format to exFAT. i put it in my S3 and it gave me the "preparing Sd card", "safely remove card" notice and didnt recognize the card. after quick formatting it in my Lg motion i put it back in the S3, it recognized it, and i put all my stuff on it.
i've only had it for less than a week so its too early to tell if it wont have problems. the 32GB samsung card i had in my motion had no issues for the almost 3 weeks i used it in my S3.
