    I read that you need a better SD card. A high speed one even faster MB/S than a class 10. Somewhere between 80 and whatever the next higher rate is. I know with the S7 edge we're trying to get the most memory from the SD card for as cheap as possible but you gotta spend a lil more on the high speed one for a phone like this. I'm not a tech wiz but an article I read stated that even class 10 isn't the greatest for this phone. With the faster processor and the phones becoming more powerful, the old SD cards can't keep up. Pretty much obsolete. Try a better SD card and see what ya get. I have a 64 gig San disc ultra plus micro sdxc UHS-I... 80 MB/S and have had no issues to date. Didn't have to format or anything. If I can find that article again, I'll post.
    No way I have a newer faster sd card..it's a 200 gig and came with my V10 when I got my Galaxy s7 active a couple weeks ago and the S7 took the card without formatting or dumping the memory..just swapped it right over..I ejected the card last night and now this morning the galaxy S7 active won't read the card . I have moved the sd card back to my V10, the stylus 2, and my pc no problems no corrupt files or the memory tables plus there is still plenty of continuity..in thinking just as I assumed Galaxy sucks

    This is the exact same thing that is happening to me. I had no issues for a few months then the card stopped working, saying ti was corrupt. I got a new card and it the old one the computer was able to retrieve everything from. The new disk was in for less than 24 hours and now is corrupt. I'm so frustrated. I never had any issues with my S3. The cards I'm using are high speed, I believe they are 85 MB/s. Do I need to do a hard reset? What will that do to everything on my phone? Do I need to take it into somewhere?

    I have just had my S7 eat my third SD card and I'm not happy...... I've been in the IT service industry for 20 years so I do extensive troubleshooting before conclusion. I got my phone in the beginning of April and I started with a 32G Patriot card that I had been using in my previous phone (Blackberry). When space on the 32Gb started to become an issue I upgraded to a 128Gb Lexar 633x. That card stopped working within 30 days of use - Phone nor windows PC would recognize the card.. Thinking it was a faulty , cheap, low reliability card, I returned it to amazon and read reviews on many other 128GB cards. I settled on the Patriot Memory 128GB LX series card. That card worked for about 45 days before it stopped being recognized by the phone and having read errors in a PC. I contacted Patriot, asked for an RMA and returned the card. (That was last week). I returned to using the original 32GB card, and that completely died on me sometime over the last 2 days.

    I have dropped my phone on occasion, but i have a Gear4 case on it, the phone is still perfect but maybe somehow it's ruining the SD?

    I'll bring it to the dealer tomorrow and see what they say.... i'm not hopefull :s

    Hi, in my phone (galaxy s7 non edge) I solved (at the moment) the problem by removing the sd card, connecting it at the computer or other device that recognize the card and deleting the folder "android" and "lost.dir". After reinsert the micro sd card in the phone, it promptly recognized the SD (and all my photos!).

    IMPORTANT: "Of course, if you has moved programs or data programs to SD card before the crash, by doing this procedure (deleting the folder "android") you will lost both (linked programs and/or linked data).You will may restore then from android backup OR, unless not deleting the folder "android", instead make a copy of this folder in the computer. After restablish the SD at the phone, copy the data (from the older folder) back at the new android folder that was created by the phone after it recognize the sd.
