SanDisk Micro-SD Card can be the most commonly used memory cards. But recently some Samsung Galaxy S3 users claim that they are not able to use previously functioning micro-SD cards with their device.
The problem, which was only recently documented by Android Central forum user Paulnptld had been causing users' Micro-SD cards to effectively become unusable after a few months' time without warning. After that initial post, other users experiencing the same problem as well as battery issues that they thought could be traced back to their use of SanDisk's cards chimed in:
"Initially reported by Samsung Galaxy S3 users – the symptom is that the card repeatedly remounts, causing the host device to rescan it and hence hammer the battery. A colleague was showing me logs of this happening 200 times a day. I've experienced two such failures with SanDisk Ultra SDHC 32GB Class 10 cards being used in GoPro Hero3 cameras."
SanDisk now is claiming responsibility for Samsung Galaxy S3 issues that users complained are killing memory cards and randomly leaving users with dead batteries. According to SanDisk a newly documented problem that effectively fried SanDisk micro-SD cards was in fact a manufacturing default.
"SanDisk has been made aware of potential product issues involving a very small percentage of its 32GB and 64GB SanDisk Mobile Ultra micro SD cards. Under certain circumstances the cards may lock up and the card becomes inaccessible. The issue has been identified and a manufacturing fix has already been put in place. SanDisk stands behind its products and any customer who experiences this issue with the microSD cards is asked to contact the SanDisk support center for a resolution immediately."
