    Default Sandisk Micro SDXC card work with SG3?

    $40 for a 64GB micro sd seems pretty good if it works with SG3? I've heard rumors and read some things here about Samsung making it difficult for non-samsung made micro sd cards working on it?

    Itl be fine.
    Theres just a lot of reports of s3 "frying" SDs and they only replace them if theyr Samsung branded but Sandisk do replace them.
    Just keep it backed up mate.

    P.s, anyone checked out the Sandisk app? What a waste of a download. Lets you back up to cloud but they dont have their own cloud service lol its gota be dropbox, box, etc. Total crap

    Yes it will work fine, i have the same card.

    I would highly recommend you format the card to FAT32 when you get it though.

    Why is everyone saying format to "FAT32" mate?

    Because the S3 won't recognize the card, that is why. It will read as a damaged sd card by the phone. Use Disk Utility on a Mac or right click to format on a PC and format to FAT32. The sd card will now work perfectly. I have the 64gb sandisk in mine. No issues.

    Actually some s3's do recognize the cards without formatting, mine did for a while. But eventually i ran into problems whenmi tried to access the card though cwr.

    One of those stupid annoyances i guess lol

    I have the same model and I've been using it since I got the GSIII. Didn't format when I popped it in. Been using whatever file system it came with

    It comes formatted. Just put it in the phone, and use it.

    I just formatted my 32gb class10 in the phone n its fine.
    Is it just the 64gb ones that should be fat32?

    Fat32 is good. Exfat is good if 32GB or less. Exfat allows larger than 4g files. I use fat32 with 64kb allocation on uhs1class10 64g.

    Again, it does not need to be formatted.
    But if you must, use a formatter for SD cards, and a reader made for SDXC cards

    all of a sudden my phone (Samsung galaxy 3) said my sandisk 64g card was damaged. I put it in another phone and it said the same thing. I did the format and now the phone recognizes it but will not let me load anything onto it. It says I have no room but the sandisk memory zone software on the phone shows it as empty.
    Can anyone tell me what to do? I hate to buy another and start over. I also tried to restore everything onto the card from the Samsung Kies software and backup.
    Thanks!!

    Jan,
    There's a long, troubled history between the Samsung Galaxy S3 and SanDisk memory cards. Depending on how long ago you got that SDCard you may be experiencing what has been a very common occurrence. SanDisk supposedly came out with a fix (sometime in the last few months?), so your best bet would be to contact them directly (http://www.sandisk.com/about-sandisk...anty-americas/) for a warranty replacement. Sorry for your troubles.

    It isn't just Sandisk cards. Many other brands have gone bad.
    Call SanDisk tech support to get a new one.
