    The root cause appears to be that Samsung wrote bad code, or used bad memory. I'd copy a few sites where you see the same problem (as you said, there are dozens) and contact Samsung to see if they have any plans to fix the problem or replace the phones.

    Thank you, unfortunately, in the threads that directly referred to Samsung owning up to it being their issue, they have not. It's fallen back on the sd card manufacturer. I was just hoping to find out if there was a known root cause or something I could avoid doing to have the problem happen again with a new card.

    It's not just SanDisk cards . I've had four different SD cards fail and only ONE was a SanDisk.

    However, I've also had one SD card NOT fail -- and it was a Samsung. So, if you can, see if you can get one of those.
