    Have you tried using the SD Monitor app to see if the card is still ejecting/unmounting? It's looking more and more like all the update did was hide the massage from popping up but the actual problem is still occuring.
    I tried to install it now and will check to see what happens.

    I rather not install another app if not needed.
    You may not have to install an app. When the SD card un/re-mounts, the Media process (re)scans all the media on the card (which drains the battery, which is my peeve with this bug). So you may be able to check the percentage of battery used by the Media process, and if it's unusually high, it could be because the SD card is un/re-mounting in the background.

    Also, the way Google's Music player is designed, you lose all your playlists -- they'll be empty/have 0 songs -- when the SD card un/re-mounts.

    my card unmounted/remounted 9 times today. i was using my riding mower and it was a bumpy ride. i wonder if it is a card tray issue.
    I've had the notification pop up when the phone was just sitting motionless on a desk, so it's not a physical connection issue in my case.

    Hi everyone,

    I am reading in this thread for a couple of weeks, cause I have the same problems with the SD Card (Vietnamese S7 Edge, first batch, german provider).
    Just wanted to share my experiences with you.

    SD Monitor NEVER showed me unwanted ejected SD Card, which surprised me a bit. I also never had upcoming notifications. Nevertheless I experienced freezes when downloading my Spotify library to the SD Card. After listening to two or three songs, Spotify would freeze.

    Anything else is good so far. Video, photos and also games are working well on the SD Card, even after half an hour of playing. Still the Spotify thing is mysterious (and annoying, cause the library is about 15 to 20 GB of space...).

    yeah, i've had the notices pop up when the phone was just sitting on a table, but its odd that it ocurred so many time while riding my mower. lol

    did you go to a verizon corporate owned store, and not an individual retailer?

    Still alive... Third s7:
    I got my new S7. I have no more SD card notifications at all. Not even when I reboot the phone. Yesterday (again) I was listening to music (a set of 2 hours long) from my SD card. I started to look at pictures (again) at the same time. After 40 mins or so, my phone stopped the music and stopped being able to read my SD. Everything froze and I had to reboot. Then, again, a few mins later (listening to music and looking at pictures), it did it again. On the second time, I was not able to reboot the phone using the power button (keeping pressure for 10 seconds). I had to do it using the volume down/home/power. The phone screen was totally black and there was no way to unfreeze it. My notification light was flashing blue (as I had new emails and text), but the phone was not responsive at all.

    It seems like Samsung just removed the SD notification as a whole in the new phone but did not fix the issue.

    For those who don't have the issue, before commenting, I would appreciate if you could listen to music and look at your pictures at the same time (all from the micro SD card) for at least 30-40 minutes.

    I strongly believe that ALL phones have this issue, but that those who don't just have not access pictures while listening to music (demanding on the SD card reading). Do it if you can... and see if it creates problems. And let me know once you did the above. Thanks.

    I want to add that I am a computer/smartphone savy. I flashed ROMS on all my S1, S2, S3, S4. I also did thought it could have been my micro SD the problem (even if it works perfectly with my S5) so I went and bought a Samsung evo 64gb... Same issue. I reformatted both from PC and within the phone and factory reset (on more than 8 occasions). Same issue with all. My S5 doesn't have any issues with both SD. So no it is not the SD the cupid.

    It happens more often where using the gallery and/or Camera. I have also downloaded the app to show my sd card mount/unmont and I get it 3-5 times per day.

    Honestly, neither one of my T-Mobile S7 Edge phones have this problem. I frequently listen to music and go through pictures to post on FB and other sites at the same time. My phone has never frozen and SD monitor is always at 0. I have owned these two phones for over two months now. They are perfect.

    I was streaming music to my home audio system while looking at pictures as well as saving various things to my sd card for well over 2 hours on Sunday with 0 issues. I actually listen to music and browse other things, including pictures, at the same time quite often. The only time I get the message is at boot. This is a far cry from my original s7 edge that gave me the notification constantly. I don't get any errors when using the camera or any other app at all. I've taken my sd card out put a different one in with the same result. I've cleared cache from the recovery screen as well as settings with no issues either. Just my experience that I've had on my replacement. And the sd card app has shown 0 unmounts as well.

    Installed the SD Card Monitor on my S7 Edge and so far so good.
    I'll report back tomorrow and see how it goes. This is the Verizon S7 Edge with the May 1st update.

    i must have the worst of luck.
    with my first replacement phone, it gave me another 9 errors today. and i got sd card messages when opening the camera. i have 67 sd card mount/unmount errors in the last 18 days.
    verizon sent me a second replacement phone, and before i switched over, i left that phone on for a couple days, and sure enough, an sd card message, and i didnt even have a card in the phone! i sent that phone back today.
    what do i do?....

    That is interesting. If no SD card is present in the tray, then it sounds like it could be a software issue if the notification continues to appear.

    Less than 24 hours after installing the SD Card Monitor app and I've still got problems.
    This is on a Verizon S7 Edge with the May,1st 2016 update.
    All they did was eliminate the pop up and not fix the actual problem.
    I guess it just might be a hardware problem after all with the S7.

    have you tried to factory reset and start the phone from 0? because mine started it to happen when i just used the samsung switch some apps did not work well. WIFI issues with it. I uninstalled all the app and reinstalled it back again and it fixed all my issues and i put all the pictures, music and videos to my phone. This issue with the SD cards just happens every time when I restart my phone. and It is showing up the unmonting sd card weird time when i drop my phone. Maybe Samsung did not build a good tray for the SD card, It is a little weak.

    the error would happen to me in safe mode also, so that eliminates an app being the issue.

    I'm averaging 1 bad SD card dismount a day now.
    When restarting the phone is SD notification now longer shows up upon restart.
    Guess Verizon ripped the notification out altogether without fixing the problem at hand.

    I guess it really is a hardware problem.

    I don't know if I fully buy that it's hardware. My first one had the issue, my second one didn't. I know about 10 other people that have this phone and none of them have ever had this issue. I think if it was hardware, a lot more people would be dealing with this. Just my take.

    You got lucky. When you restart the phone does the SD notification show up anymore? You on Verizon?

    I'm on t-mobile and just got my phone back from Samsung support. They said they couldn't repeat the problem and ended up only replacing the SD tray. One hour after getting my phone back while charging from 50% battery life and having the phone sit on a table I got 3 unmounts/bad sd card removal and since then I'm up to 6...
