    I know that this might sound crazy but it sounds to me like you have a corrupt SD card. That is a very common problem with these SD cards. There is a app in the playstore that you can download it is called SD insight and it will run a check on your card and let you know if it is a good SD card or not. Try this first and if that doesn't help then you might want to buy a new one. I hope this helps you!!!

    That would be your best bet I believe. Try the SanDisk SD card if you are not already using that brand. That is what I am using, I have the 32 gig card and it works great. Good luck and be sure to post with what happens.

    I switched card and still the same thing. upon closer inspection of the port noticed one of the pins was uneven to the rest, used a sewing needle to re align and everything is good ! plus recommending SD Insight as a tool all should have. thanks again
