Brand new SD Card not working

    I just bought a brand new Samsung 64 GB SD card for my Galaxy S5. This is because I previously had a SanDisk 16 GB card that got corrupted with an update a couple months back.

    I put the new card in and the phone recognized it with no problem. Using the My Files app I created a folder to copy over pics. The initial copy failed for some unknown reason. Now my SD card directory shows that it has no files and it will not let me create folders.

    I tried reformatting the card via the phone and one time the folder showed back up. I tried to copy the rest of the files and got an error and missing files on the card.

    Any ideas on how to fix this? I'm thinking my old card was not the problem now.

    Where did you buy the SD? Possibility you got a fake, there's a lot of them around, especially from Ebay and Amazon vendors.

    Bought it at Best Buy. The exact same thing for both cards now. I think it's the phone. I'm going to try a factory restore later today to see if that fixes it.
