    I have a 32g micro sdhc that I put in first and formatted with Evo. everything was going fine except not all songs were being transferred over then the man problem occurred with camera and camcorder. It shoots the pic and video then when I go immediately to my gallery to review it has an error symbol then the card is frozen and nothing else can be saved used or drag and dropped to the card. And the phone won't format it after that either. Do i have. Bad card?

    Did you get one of those 2gig cards that they make look like a 32gig card, from the horror stories I have heard your best bet is to get an official one from a Good source like Amazon or someone with a good reputation online. Until they come down in price I am perfectly happy with my 16gig card.

    If you purchased it off ebay from china its most likely a hacked card. The card could be a 2-4gb card thats hacked to show 16-32gb. They seem to work fine at first until you actually fill the card up with about 2gb of data then everything will nuts after that.

    the one I got from Verizon has been working flawlessly. I packed it with 10GB of mp3s, 3gb of movies, etc.


    I agree, if you got it on Ebay there's a 99% chance it's counterfeit.

    Go with the Verizon card. I keep telling people not to buy cheap SD cards or cheap car chargers. Your paying for quality by buying a card from Verizon.

    Don't know when you bought it but the EURO was stronger than the American dollar not to long ago. Depends on when you purchased the card. If that's the case you probably got ripped off.

    I have foolishly bought 2 of these from ebay (from different sellers and as mentioned above they are cracked fakes. I really don't understand why ebay can't close these people down :mad:

    Ebay has tools to root out unreliable sellers, feedback and rep. Also always buy from a US seller. I have bought 2 32gb cards with no problems.
