    Default Note ate my SD card

    What is with Samsung devices? This is my third SD card eaten by a Samsung device. My GS3 ate two and now my Note 8.0 has consumed a third. And my Mother-in-law's Note 3 ate hers as well.

    I've tried different brands, always high quality.

    My phones before Samsung all handled SD cards correctly but had other major draw backs. But I can't hang with Samsung anymore, I need the SD card space.

    Aside from Samsung, there aren't many option left. Who is your carrier?

    What do you mean by 'ate your card'? Corrupted data? Can you reformat it or is it functionally dead?

    I have used a Sandisk Ultra 32GB MicroSD in my Note 8 for a little over a year now. Never any problems.

    I believe he means it corrupted it. I've lost 2 so far. I believe my problem was related to overdrive or osmand. But it may have just been Samsung.

    I avoid Sandisk microSD cards because of what happend a while back (a lot of bad cards- Ultra I think- especially with Samsung devices.) I personally like Samsung Pro. I have three of them (64GB) in use now.

    One was a Kensington, one was one of those SanDisk Ultra XDLMNOQPQ#% $! SD (are the names long enough, I can't remember all the letters. ), other was a Sony. All were 32Gb and the best unit they made.

    P.S. I may have misspelled the Kensington brand name. It may be Kingston or something similar.

    They are functionally dead. They will not work in any machine now. All machines register them as blank SD cards, but all are incapable of formating them.

    I have a similar issue but the cards work fine in my Galaxy Note 2 phone.

    I have two of the SanDisk Ultra 64gb cards, one in my Note 2 and one in my Note 8. The Note 2 works with both cards no problem. If I put the card in the Note 8, it will work fine for a couple of minutes, and then in Explorer, it shows the card as blank.

    What's interesting is that if you go to Settings -> Storage, under the SD Card information it *does* show the correct remaining size. But you are unable to navigate the files/folders via ES Explorer or the native File Explorer.

    I was going to throw CyanogenMod on it next to verify if it's a bug with the software, or a hardware issue.

    I have a Note 3 and my 32 gb SD card that worked for over 4 months is now gone. Will not appear on my PC or in the file explorer on my Note 3. Is there a fix or us my SD card permanent dead? It worked before Kitkat and almost 2 months after the Kitkat update. Running stock note 3 4.4.2.
