    he folks trying to get a general consensus as to what you guys think of this, I have a HTC one SV and it's randomly getting a SD card unmount problem. this started out of nowhere. not after a fall or abuse etc. I'm pretty careful with my phone. 99% of the time I'm not even touching the phone when it gets this error. also if I restart the phone (not power off) it mounts and is working again.

    I doubt it's the slot of the phone because I'm not using the phone every time I get the error. I did drop it from 3 feet last night onto carpet and it didn't give me the error. I've also kind of smacked it with my hand a few times and tap it on a table to see what happens and it never gives me the error.

    you guys think the SD card is dying or am I looking at a possible phone or android issue?

    sorry. I figured it would get more views. I don't think this problem is phone specific. now I"m sure no one will see this. but thanks anyway

    I would test a new sdcard, thus issue has never been inquired at any of the HTC OneSV forums....so I would guess it's the card not android or device

    I abuse the hell out of my phone in every way and have never had that issue. When it's something easy to test like tossing in another cheap SD card to test I'd probably try that before asking for help. But that's just me. :)

    I've thrown my phone numerous times. Even threw it across my yard. Landed in the grass but yeah. I beat mine up. Lol.

    well it's not your average sd card. It's $20 because it's a MUVE music card from cricket. it's made by sandisk and I'm finding a lot of discussions on the net from other people having lots of sandisk SD card failures.

    $20 is such a rip off. but cricket is the only place you can get one of these.
    the muve music part of the card is inaccessible and can't be formatted via a computer etc. or I would just get a new kingston SD card from the local computer store for $8.

    My friend got this with his One SV when I was setting it up for him. He had a sandisk 64GB class 10 SDXC card. I returned the card to amazon and got another (well refunded and bought another) and it was fine then. The new one was also the same type of card by sandisk.

    I have the same card and mine has been fine. Another friend with the same sandisk card and One SV also has this random unmount issue.

    There's an Muve Card update, maybe that'd help :p https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sandisk.shima.fixer

    the card did quit working at all today. even in other people's phones it said it was blank or corrupt file system.
    they gave me a used card at the store but it isn't working either. but it also doesn't work in another phone.:rolleyes: the guy at the store said the new OS will allow me to use a standard card and still be able to use muve music from cricket. before you had to use their muve music card. which was limited to 4 and 8 gig. which it already came formatted giving most of the card to muve. so a 4 gig card was 3 gig muve 1 gig storage. :banghead:

    I had a similar problem, with a kingston 16GB microSD. What I did was took out the card, put it in my laptop and ran scandisk /chk (or was it /f?) on it. Let it complete it and it recovered all but 2 files which I promptly deleted. For good measure, I ran defrag on it (not necessary since it's flash) just to pack it all in a nice tight space. Then ran a quick scandisk once more to make sure no errors were present. Put it back in my phone and it's fine.

    It has been a month so far, just saying.....:)

    In any case, I made a complete backup of the sdcard, so I can just get a new one and copy all the files on the new one easily.
