    hi guys me and the mrs both got Samsung s3 and with bought both 32 & 64gb micro cards to load music onto but though the music does load with in days the phone says the card is corrupt and needs formatting and so we lose all our loaded music and have to reload it all again, this is happening every few weeks or so and now becoming a real pain.

    we bought the cards of ebay and are just cheap branded cards we have tried around 4 different cards now and all do the same.

    do you think it may be that its just cheap cards or has anyone else had this problem of losing all the data on there cards on Samsung phones?
    was thinking of buying Kingston cards but they cost loads and don't want to pay that sort of cash out if there not going to work either
    any advice would be great

    Thanks :)

    Its very likely the cheap cards - its a known issue with cheap cards from ebay sellers. Suggest Kingston, Sandisk or Samsung.

    I use Sandisk cards and haven't had a single issue with any of them.
