    use mini to format your sd card as fat32/primary and you wont have any problems
    "use mini" Guess it should be obvious but please "mini" what?

    My card was fat32 and the problem still happened. Unfortunately this is not a solution.

    Attempting to read or repair in the computer was a no go. Back to Amazon for a credit. (This was actually on 1/17) I just decided on a lexar class 10 card (NOT UHS-1) Since no one has mentioned issues with them AND because I looked at Samsung's website for a 32GB micro SD card and did not see the one EVERYONE (but Amazon) is selling on Amazon. :/

    Fingers crossed that I'm ok with Lexar, if not, I give up and will go back to Apple and their crazy restrictions on what I get to tinker with before I jailbreak. (In 2 years) At least I never had any weird issues with their hardware.

    I am sick over my SD card. None of the pics I had were on it when I put it into the Note2. Previous phones never that problem. I am so sick over it. But they are on my FB and what's weird ....not all if them were put on FB....pics I can never replace. With Larry Fitzgerald. And my kitten when she was tiny 8 weeks old.

    Sorry to hear that. Anytime I pull my sd card I back it up and clean it for the next round. It is getting cluttered again. Time to back it up again I suppose:o

    OK, so I've got the same Sandisk 32gb ultra class 10 that everyone else has, started getting these errors about two weeks (ballpark) ago. I will try a different sd card. Funny thing, is my husband has the same card on his SIII (I got two one sale at radio shack for like $70 total) and he has not had any issues so I'm definitely thinking its software issues with the Note2. I will try to get a new card/different size over the weekend and see what happens. Its annoying as crap because my ringtones, alarm tones, etc dont work. I will see whats what but I am at least glad that I am not on my own on this issue

    Yep, pretty much the same problem everyone else has, but now it says that the "SD card is blank or has unsupported files"....really?
    From this thread I can't quite figure out if it is the Sandisk, the hardware in my phone (Galaxy Note 2 Sprint) or the software.
    I'm also attaching a screenshot here where you can see the message in the top with the exclamation sign AND the indication that I have 40 GB of pictures and videos,which is clearly not possible.
    Any more discoveries about this issue?

    Update:
    As of Friday night, the card symbol with the exclamation sign disappeared and the card is 'back to normal'......<cue music of the Twilight Zone'>
    Also, before the return to normal, in desperation, I clicked on 'blank SD card' a few times and chose the Format option which took me right back to the symbol with the exclamation point.
    When things returned to 'normal' the content of the card was perfectly A-ok.......WT*?

    I had exactly the same card. Eventually the card failed. I have since purchased a class 10 lexar 16gb. I am now having the same issue again. I dropped about 1500 mp3 on a music folder and had about 1500 pictures. I lost all of the data not synched with photo bucket. All of the music was lost.

    The card was unreadable on the computer. I am hoping a just had a failed card. I think it is a larger issue.

    Hi All

    I had this same problem on my note 2 using a sandisk class 10 card.

    After showing my problem to a fellow note 2 user who used to have an old iphone he gave me the solution that has SOLVED the problem.

    Step 1. Cut a small piece of cardboard from a business card about the size of your thumb nail

    Step 2 take the back cover of your phone

    Step 3 Place the cardboard over the top of where the micro sd card is sitting

    Step 4 replace cover ensuring cardboard remains in place

    This completely resolved the issue. It would appear the problem is NOT a software issue but a issue to do with the contact on either the card or the phone (not enough pressure).

    How did an iphone user give me this solution? He has the same problem with a sim card in his iphone.

    I have seen on a thread on xda that the culprit is actually seeming to be the sandisk cards. They use a different format (UHS-I) than many other cards. Sandisk also has weird partitioning on some of its cards. I went to Best Buy yesterday and was able to pick up a 32gb class 10 PNY card for 29.99. So far I'm on my 14th hour with no message or SD card problems. I also recall seeing a thread where sandisk admitted to be having problems with Samsung mobile devices. I am not saying who's at fault here but it does seem to be a compatibility issue.

    Bought the 32GB PNY last Friday. I just got the same error this morning "SD card is blank or has unsupported files". I previous had a 16GB card from another phone and it happened to that one as well. I can't read either card in my laptop. Both the phone and laptop want to format the card. It is not manufacturer or size specific. This is a problem with the Note 2.

    Actually it seems to be a Samsung problem. I see others with S2, S3 having the same problem.

    Yes many on various forum came to the conclusion about a month or so ago that the Note 2 and the 32gb Sandisk and perhaps some other smaller Sandisks do not play well together. Maybe I've overlooked it but I have not heard of anyone having the issue with the 64gb Sandisk or any size card made by other memory manufacturers.

    Check a couple posts up or on xda. It also seems to be happening to more cards from different manufacturers.

    I was having the same issue using a ScanDisk 32gb micro SD. I tried formatting it various different times and ways with not change. Ultimately the only resolution has been to use a different brand card. I picked up a Transcend 32gb card and have had none of the same problems.
