    Hy! I have a Samsung galaxy trend plus s-7580 and a card Micro SD HC 4 Kingston 8 GB. Today at 9 am it had no problem. At 1 pm it just stopped working. The phone is not recognizing the card anymore. And on the notification bar it says "Preparing SD card. Checking for errors". If i connect it to the PC, is not recognizing. My phone reads other cards, but this not anymore. What should i do?
    P.S.: This card is almost 2 years "old".

    Welcome to Android Central! SD cards do have a finite lifespan, so it might have reached its end of life. Try taking the card out, plugging it into your computer using a fullsize SD adapter (very cheap to buy if you don't have one already), and running chkdsk. http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...d-sd-card.html

    Yes, it's the same thing. You just need the fullsize SD adapter.

    Hey! i went to the service and the guy said that the Card is dead...no chance to use it again. But i lost almost nothing, that is good. So i bought a new SD Card. Hope this won't have the same problem.
    Thank you for the help and have a good day!

    Great! So just keep in mind that SD cards don't last forever, which means make sure you backup valuable information to your computer or the cloud!
