    Phone has been pretty darn stable... no real issues to complain about EXCEPT the stupid batter full/charge notification :mad:

    I do have a weird problem though. When I first got the phone, I put in a 32gb Micro SD card and I think it was a 10x card. After a while, the phone started telling me that the SD card was removed improperly, and then it would start the install process on it. As time went by... probably over the next 3 weeks or so, the problem starting occuring more and more. So, I changed out the card and went with a Samsung 16gb card straight from Samsung. I believe that it's a 4x card.

    Everything was good.... however some 2 months later, this card is now doing the same thing.

    Anybody got any ideas?

    Could it possibly be that the internal pins on the phone are not super tight and losing contact with the card? Just a thought.

    Could be. No one knows for certain why this happens. I was getting the same thing but it happened to me after a firmware update. I got the msg for a couple of weeks then one day just stopped getting it.

    Seems to be a very common problem, but mostly with 32gb SanDisk cards.

    Recently my playlist always delete every time i unlock the phone and I quickly see the sd card image in notification bar. I Also have a SanDisk 32gb card but it's all black. This is so frustrating :mad:

    As a matter of interest, have you tried checking the SD card in a card reader attached to a Win PC? It may identify any corrupt files on the card. One way of doing so would be to open a 'Command Prompt' window and typing

    chkdsk xx:

    Where xx is the drive letter of the SD card.

    ...manufactured in December :( Mine was doing the same for 3 days, mounting/unmounting. I took it out, backed everything up (using external SD reader and micro-SD adapter), not it works fine.

    I had two different 32gb SD cards bought from two different retail stores that went out on me. I was able to send them back to SanDisk and they replaced them. 64gb class 10 Sandisk in now and no problems so far.

    I was afraid they won't honor it since I bought my card back in December, but then I read a few other people had success contacting SanDisk. Did you email them or call them up directly? I don't have any trust in this card anymore. Everything is backed up, and I'm just keeping it as external memory with all 800+ pictures from my DX and whatever pictures I took so far with N2. All the new pictures are being saved on internal memory for now. Perhaps I can contact them with my original Amazon order number. I heard from a few sources there was something wrong with their controller on 32GB SD cards.

    I emailed them and they were pretty good about getting them exchanged for me.
