    I'm using moto e for over a year now. my since the last few months this error "SD card removed Unexpectedly" keeps popping up. It happens everytime when I charge my phone or connect it to USB, play specific songs or randomly too. Everytime this happens I have to eject it and insert the card again but since yesterday even when I do that within a minute or so the error pops up. Finally giving up Isearched about it on the internet I found out that it happens if i use a Class 10 SD card and if I switch to a Class 4 or 6 the problem would go away. But then I checked my SD card class it's class 4. I am using a SanDisk 8gb class 4 card. and I tried this with another car which is also class 4 8gb, sandisk. But the problem still prevails. Please help me out.

    Welcome to Android Central! The SD card could be corrupt, defective, or counterfeit. Install SD Insight to see if the card is genuine or counterfeit. Counterfeit cards are programmed to report more storage than they actually have, and if you try saving more than the card can actually hold, then files can start getting corrupt.


    If it's a valid card, then go to Settings>Storage, Unmount the card, remove it, and insert it into your computer. Can the computer read these files? Backup as much as you can right now, then run chkdsk to look for bad sectors: http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...d-sd-card.html.

    If the card doesn't appear corrupt, then there might be a problem with the card's SD reader. If possible, clean the SD reader's contacts with a Q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol (or blow the slot out with a can of compressed air). If the problem persists, you may have to bring it to a repair shop.

    Thank you for the info. But both the SD cards I used on my phone, work perfectly fine in others. I guess I have to go to a shop for getting t done then.
