this moves to the internal 9.93 storage partition and NOT /ex_card

Thanks for confirming, marctronixx! That's what I thought.

So this screen wouldn't make a difference, whether you had the microSD in the phone or not.

Photon is set up exactly the same on gingerbread, so it doesn't surprise me. I don't mind it, but some haven't liked the partitioning.

LOL...I actually got it when it was $70, which was a good deal at that time. Just shows you how things can change in a 2 month timeframe. I've already gotten the moneys worth out of it though.

I was just posting for those that didn't jump on the earlier price drop, but I agree. Great deal at $49.99, for those that didn't have one and were willing to get the deal this time around.

Question Is this still the best 16 GB Class 10 Micro SD?

Patriot Signature 16 GB Class 10 MicroSDHC Flash Memory Card:

Amazon.com: Patriot Signature 16 GB Class 10 MicroSDHC Flash Memory Card (PSF16GMCSDHC10): Electronics

I used it on my OG Evo and it seemed to work great. My OG Evo got stolen so I need to get a new card for the LTEvo.

It's on $16 right now . . .

It's actually a very fast and reliable card, typos aside. Got it about for $27 shipped from Newegg about 5 months ago. This is what I'm giving up to go with the 64GB UH-1 class 10 Sandisk.

Default MicroSD won't format

I've developed a MicroSD problem. I've been using a known good, Sandisk 64GB microSD card from a reputable retailer for ~9 months. The only thing I can trace this to was adding some files to the card yesterday and possibly the microSD to USB adapter breaking during write (Windows 7 showed the progress bar completed no issue)?

I added 6 game apk files at ~300MB total (humblebundle). They appeared to write to the card with no problem, however after reinserting the card back to the phone and powering on and mounting it up only one of the apks was physically there.

Now the adapter is not working (a known good 32GB card won't work with it - the drive partially shows up on my PC but as unmounted greyed out). I've used a microSD to SD card adapter and USB card reader, also can mount the phone as a disk drive. I'm able to view the drive and it appears I can add or delete files but every time I remount it, it reverts back to right before the files were added. I copied the files off successfully after this trouble arose and have a fully up to date working back up.

I've tried formatting in phone, and it appears to maybe work, but after remounting all the files are still there. Formatting with my PC appears to work - resets the capacity to 0, but once it is ejected and remounted, it shows the old configuration with all my files in tact. Even using the handy dandy PC formatting tool doesn't work. It will complete all format options, but none of them stick. Even Full Overwrite appeared to write to the whole volume of the disk successfully, but after remounting I'm back to where I was. I don’t think Flash Erase is working.
Phone can still read files from the card just fine.

Did I inadvertently trip a write protection circuit or something?
One other small detail, not thinking clearly, the folder I added the apks to I accidentally named ‘Android’ (it was named this way on my PC to differentiate the game files from their equivalent PC game files) Could adding a file folder named ‘Android’ to a microSD card break the core file system, or was it just a cosmic coincidence?

I was so close to ordering another 64 the other week when it was the Amazon Gold Box deal too. Total remorse now.

Wow, Pyro. You have me completely stumped. All the troubleshooting you did is exactly what I would've recommended. Sounds like a "real" tech needs to step in here and give you some guidance, cuz that is way over my head.

Basic troubleshooting is kind of second nature for us
I always try to get ideas from other good brains when I can. Even the best can overlook the simple things sometimes.

chkdsk showed no problems.
I'm thinking a low level format and rebuild is a bit of a ditch effort. Not sure where to turn for that though.

I am pretty bummed, as I feel this is still a fixable problem just with a unclear solution (I hate those! I like solving puzzles). I can access all the data, the disk mounts fine, shows all the correct system info and capacity, passes diagnostics, but still cannot format or write new data through any means.

I remember in the past hearing about Sandisk's great customer service so I dialed them up on my browser and used their web chat feature to contact them for what I was hoping would be some advanced troubleshooting ideas or the chance at a replacement.
I answered all their questions (most of which subtly tilted towards proving the card was not a counterfeit) followed their basic simple troubleshooting step of quick formatting using Windows 7. Which I had obviously tried, amongst other more in depth methods.
The representative quickly went into RMA mode without being prompted or having another troublesooting thought. I expressed my displeasure at the thought of sending off the card with all my sensitive phone data on it and the rep informed me I could drill a hole through it and return it via RMA. Which sealed the deal, so I'll be getting a new card at no cost soon.
Another positive experience backing up Sandisk's service.

In other news, when I was at work yesterday I hit my microSD to USB adapter with ye old can-o-air. It must have cleared dust/pocket lint from the inner contacts. Either that or the adapter works like a Nintendo cartridge and needed some aeration. Now the adapter is working again.
I'll probably be buying a new adapter since I feel unsure about the stability of this one I have.
It sounds kind of silly and obvious now after the fact (hindsight 20/20), but a word of warning to others; despite the adapter being convenient, small, and on a keychain, I would not recommend carrying it on your keys or in a pocket. It must be a real lint trap. This all may be coincidental but I hate imagining that dust possibly corrupted my file transfer and ruined my microSD card.

Have you tried this?

https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_3/

There are articles floating around on why you may get poor results formatting a 64GB card in a phone, not sure where to look right now though.

It's clearly haunted. I highly doubt naming a folder 'android' would interfere with other folders with that name or somehow null the format process. You need a priest and some holy water.

Certainly.
That is the "handy dandy PC formatting tool" I mention in post 119.
You remember me right?
I gave out this link in post 82 of this thread. I've been one of the biggest proponents of this tool for years. I can't even count how many times I've recommended it.

Trying out Tapatalk, skimmed the thread, missed that, sorry. I'm in the same boat, always recommending that, lol.

Might have been some ESD damage in handling, not sure what else to suggest.

That sounds like a totally legit explanation. Seems like you're dropping the ball Earlymon!

If history has taught us anything about technology, or the unexplainable... when in doubt, lynch the witch!

Update
I received my replacement MicroSD card from SanDisk yesterday. It appears to be a equivalent card, brand new without the retail package. It came with the clamshell plastic case and a MicroSD -> SD card adapter (Now I've got 3 of them and no use as I don't use a all in one card reader! ). I wish it had come with microSD->USB adapter instead as it is much more useful in any situation. I should have ordered one online a bit ago that came in a pack with a microSD card for like $20. It would have been a better deal for the money since an extra 4/8/16/32GB card would be useful later. Instead I picked up a marked up adapter pack locally (SanDisk Mobile Mate Duo; 1 x MicroSD -> USB 1 x MicroSD -> SD Card) for $9.99. What a ripoff. At least I don't have to worry about the gamble of using my old adapter that I believe was malfunctioning. The new card and adapter are working fine so far after a full card format on the computer and installation plus format in the phone.
Priest and Holy Water not needed

I decided to experiment with the old card a little, for science, before sending it back so I left it in a cup of water overnight, scuffed the contacts like crazy with a magnet, and then microwaved the card on high for a few minutes. Surprisingly the card was still readable by my PC! After that I drilled a hole through it like advised. I have to be honest it was kind of fun abusing the card and then drilling a hole through it before sending it back. It was for sure non-functional after that.

Default external SD card file system

Are there any drawbacks of formatting my microSD to NTFS to avoid the 4 gb file size limit?

I read somewhere that the camera won't be able to save pictures to your external microSD if its formatted to NTFS..any comments on that?

Default fat32 limitations and 64gb card

Is everyone stuck to using fat32 and having a 4gb file limitation on their large storage cards and Android OS?

Any success getting around it with a linux partition?

Default 64gb card not working any more

I saw some threads in the SGS3 forums about this, but none here. I know the Evo technically doesn't support the 64gb card, but a lot of people seem to have it working, including myself,at one point. However, it just stopped working for no apparent reason the other day, and I even got a new device but still no go. Anyone else have any problems with the big cards?

ive had a 64gb card in the evo lte 4g since launch. no issues at all.

you may have some read/write errors on the card that need to be addressed.

if you can put the card in a computer, can you see EVERYTHING on the card? if so, copy everything off the card on to the computer. i use a pc , so if you are on a mac, use the utility that does the same thing as the utility within windows that allows the computer to scan the card for errors and fix them.

so, making a backup as described above, just make an image of your card and copy it to the computer.

then do the scan disk utility to fix any errors.

after that is done, just put the card back into the phone WITHOUT copying over the image you made earlier. see if you are able to access te contents on the card and use it normally.

if you are still not able to use it normally, then you will need to reform the card in the phone. then copy over your image you made and you should be good to go.

this occurred a lot on the original evo 4g and i think to some extent on the 3D with 32gb cards.

also, the brand of the card (speed is not a factor as the bottleneck occurs in the phone so having a certain class of card is not as important here) is a little important. for me, ive only used sandisk and i have not had those issues. there are even fake sandisk card on the net so be careful.

are you rooted? latest jb updates and all that?

Default Is there a file size limit on the SD card?

I'm trying to transfer some large files, like 8GB. Can this be put on my phone's SD card?

Thanks.

On the external sd card?

No, the file size exceeds the limit.

The theoretical maximum is 4 GB, but be cautioned that some apps can only access up to 2 GB data files.

No, I'm not rooted. Every time the message comes up that says its unreadable or has bad files i hit the format button, but two seconds later the message comes up again. I'll try it on the PC to see if that does anything.

The card is a SanDisk Ultra 64gb Micro SD XC I.
