    I'm so tired of this. My 32 GB Samsung Micro SD card is perfectly functional. It's about 4-5 months old and been through 2 S4 refurb replacements. Fresh off a factory reset after the last 4.3 update and week old refurb when this began. I do battery pulls and reinsert the card but it only helps temporarily.

    It will go back and forth with this for like 30 minutes...... Bleep!!

    Uggghhh!!!!! *¥°×¢Î*@$&#&@%

    Sounds like it could be a bad socket. Contact Samsung and see if they'll take it in for a real diagnosis, not just a "here's another card" fix.

    1. try your sd card in your laptop if it can be read. .if yes, try to browse the files. . .

    2. try a FORMAT via laptop/PC. . (of course backup the files)

    3. upon a fresh format, try to return the card into your unit. . . and test. . .

    4. if item 1, fails, maybe you have a BAD CARD. . .

    5. if item 3 fails, maybe a unit issue??

    I'm backing it all up at this moment. Once I'm done, I'll go on from there.

    (Update!) I backed it all up, formatted with my laptop, copied the data all back with the same laptop, pulled the battery, installed the card, and turned the phone on.

    The laptop reads the card just fine.

    Within minutes it was doing it again! What a piece of junk! Why won't they or can't they make electronics as durable as my old Sony Discman from the 90's that still works fine?

    I guess it's replacement #3, first two were for the headphone jack. This ties my former RAZR Maxx for number of replacements.

    I'm tempted to go for another brand next time. I don't want to give up SD support but my Rezound had no issues (other than crappy battery life) for the 5 months I had it. The ONE is sounding good. This will be 6 months around thanksgiving, and I only got the 2nd replacement a week ago, which is the culprit.

    Sometimes technology makes me wonder why I bother. If I didn't have a need for a smart phone, I would sell it and go back to a dumb one.

    I ordered my replacement (#3) today within hours of the text from Verizon telling me that my defective device had been received.

    I am having the same problems as well. After spending a few hours downloading music to the SD card, it went corrupt after a few weeks. I've reformatted via the phone several times, but now the phone doesnt even recognize it. Pissed. Let me know how you replacement works out. :smokingsomb:

    Replacement has no issues yet. Had it since 4PM Friday. Looks like the problem is fixed!
