Default SD Card Woes

Hi

I bought a 64gb memory card to get my music onto the note. However without fail after about 2 minutes of copying (by drag and drop) I get a message "The device has either stopped responding or has been disconnected". Dismounting and then mounting the card and unplugging the usb brings it back for a few minutes before the same thing happens.

The songs that have copied are playing ok on the note but if I open up a music folder from the memory card on the pc it is empty, and yet they play on the device.

I have formatted the card, tried copying the music files with the card in my S3(same results) and am at a loss what to do. Is it likely the card is faulty or is it a problem with my pc or even with both my S3 and Note.

I would appreciate any advice. Thanks all

Can you use a card adaptor and copy to it THEN insert it into the Note 10.1?

Hi, thanks for the replies.

The card is a Sandisk Ultra micro sd 64gb.

Must admit I hadn't thought of trying the card in an adaptor and inserting in the computer- yep that worked without a problem. I copied 500 tracks as a test and completed fast accurately. Thanks for the suggestion.

The note 10.1 and Galaxy S3 are both jellybean. I formatted the card(In the S3) when the problem first showed as I hoped that might be the solution.

I guess using the adaptor to copy/delete may be a solution if I cant get the note/S3 to do it properly. I can imagine one device is faulty but both?

I had issues on an SD card, and installed https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=air.com.anotherflexdev.sdcardtester.SDC ardTester&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwyLDE sImFpci5jb20uYW5vdGhlcmZsZXhkZXYuc2RjYXJkdGVzdGVyL lNEQ2FyZFRlc3RlciJd. The tablet rebooted twice during the tests, indicating a bad card.
Just for safety sake, check your card. Make sure it reads/writes ok. (And don't do the default 300Mb. Do a good chunk. at least 50% of the card or so)

Neither the phone nor the tablet is faulty. The pprobblem was MTP and your PC.

JvdMaat Thanks for that, I have done as you say and the result was "Test finished and all data written could be validated" which I presume means it is ok.

Szadzik Sorry to be ignorant but what is MTP and what should I do about it? Cheers

Media Transfer Protocol. It is the protocol that is used to connect your device to your PC.

Normally, when you connect a storage device, UMS (USB Mass Storage) protocol is used and the PC does not have any problems with that.

MTP on the other hand, is a protocol used by cameras, Portable Media Players, etc. It is far from perfect and can cause problems with transfer.
