Hello, so last night I had and update for what I believe to be an andriod update and after my GS4 rebooted it was saying that it couldn't read the SD card and it was damaged and to try and reformat it.

Not much help I'm sure but I've had S3, note 2 and now the S4. My 64gb card has corrupted in every device....getting a tad expensive now!

the Sandisk Class 10 32 gig (legit local retail purchase) that worked well in my GS3 immediately started corrupting pics taken with the GS4. Also, several games that write huge files/resources to the SD when first run failed repeatedly. I took the card out and cleaned the contacts with a cloth and reseated it several times. And the games installed/ran.. but I haven't been brave enough to send pics to SD again

I was getting the same messages as the OP. I have the Note 2 and so far 2 system updates have killed 2 32GB Class 10 SanDisks cards. It's kind of hard for me to not think the updates had anything to do with it since both cards worked flawlessly before.

I don't know what cards I'll buy next but I know it's not SanDisk.
