    I just bought a brand new Samsung 64 GB SD card for my Galaxy S5. This is because I previously had a SanDisk 16 GB card that got corrupted with an update a couple months back.

    I put the new card in and the phone recognized it with no problem. Using the My Files app I created a folder to copy over pics. The initial copy failed for some unknown reason. Now my SD card directory shows that it has no files and it will not let me create folders.

    I tried reformatting the card via the phone and one time the folder showed back up. I tried to copy the rest of the files and got an error and missing files on the card.

    Any ideas on how to fix this? I'm thinking my old card was not the problem now.

    What happens if you put the card in a PC?

    .android_secure
    Android
    DCIM
    LOST.DIR

    That leads me to believe it's not the card. Next step would be to try another known good card in your phone.

    Yeah, I just went out and bought this card today. I bought a Samsung card because I had read that phone had some problems with the SanDisk cards.

    It is basically doing the same exact thing as it did with the SanDisk card. I did a check disk on my PC of the new card and it did reveal that there was corruption found.

    This sucks has anyone seen this type of problem before?

    Take it back and get a Samsung 64gb uhs-1 evo card. No problems and fast read write speeds. Not sure if that's what you got. But maybe you bought wrong class?

    Yup, that's the one I got.

    I am reformatting on the PC now. This didn't help with the other card. Lets see.

    Not sure if I should start thinking of doing a factory reset on the phone? I'm sure there is a thread on here on how to do this right?
