    Ok so everytime I move files over from my internal storage to my sd card on my galaxy s5 they become corruped. This is my 3rd memory card I have purchased so it's not that. I am even using an official samsung 64gb micro sd card. When the video clips are saved on the device they play fine. So I copied them over to my sd card using the my files folder on the phone and "moved" them and "copied" them over. At first the files play fine but then when I go back later to play them some of them pop up as unable to play video and are corrupted. I googled the issue and I'm not the only one having this problem but I haven't found a resolution either. Anyone experience this issue or have a fix?

    No I just put it in my phone out of the package. I will format it and see if issue still persists.

    I purchased from best buy. The previous cards are old SanDisk I use for other things.

    I formatted the SD card and still got the same corruption. I am now running the program you suggested. It's a brand new Samsung memory card so it's not the issue. I called samsung earlier today and they said it may be a defective memory card slot and want me to send it in for repairs. I just got the phone back in September through at&the so will do a device swap with them to see if it corrects issue. But if you google my problem you will see it's a known issue.

    I am having the same issues. My files won't stay on the card. I have changed phones via Verizon's defective plan as they thought it was the specific phone. After getting the new phone and a new 128gb card it is still a mess.
