    It always says disk is damaged. I got it to work for a while somehow, and was able to access the disk and load files, but then I reset my phone and the error message comes up again. Then I loaded it into a computer and the files I had loaded were gone, but files I had previously loaded and deleted were there. Phone is also unable to format the card. I thought this phone was supposed to be compatible with these things? I just don't trust the card, since data is on it one second and gone the next. I don't really want to put anything important on it at this point. Anyone else on a US version having any luck with a 64gb card. Mine is a Sandisk UHS-1 card.

    I'm going back to my class 4 32gb. Too bad, I blew $70 on this card.

    I had the same issue trying my 64GB in my Maxx. I used it in one of my laptops before and apparently it gets formatted for Windows, but needs to be FAT32 for an Android phone. Did you put yours in your phone brand new or had you used it in a computer before using in your phone? I have not been able to get mine to work, but know others who have in the Maxx forums.

    I'm running a Sandisk 64gig class 10 and I'm not having any problems. Wish I had some advice.

    I would recommend using the phone to try to reformat the SD card. As techgeek32 has mentioned, the SD card needs to be FAT32 and Windows defaults to NTFS. Go to settings > Storage > Format SD card.

    Formatting the card will erase anything on it, so make any necessary backups.

    I definitely would try to reformat the card as FAT 32, as I'm pretty positive Samsung officially supports 64 GB cards for the S III. If not, I'd contact Sandisk's warranty department.

    The phone says the disk is damaged and it fails to format it.

    Should run memory test on it on the computer to make sure speeds and memory are as advertised or maybe you have a counterfeit. And try formatting on your comp to fat32

    Shouldn't the 64GB card be formatted as exFat?
