A little bit after the turn of the year, a Samsung Galaxy S III
owner complained that his expensive class 10 32GB SanDisk microSD card stopped being recognized by his 16GB Samsung Galaxy S III. So he decided to speak with a Samsung representative via an online chat and told him how the card had been ejected one day, and not recognized by his phone the next day and added that he had read about similar problems being experienced by other Galaxy S III owners. Instead of responding to his issue, the Samsung rep merely told him not to believe everything he reads about on forums. Nice response, eh? Another Samsung Galaxy S III owner wrote that the same model SanDisk 32GB microSD card would continuously remount, which would force it to be rescanned and in the process, kill the battery.
SanDisk has had some problems with its 32GB and 64GB microSD cards
After that ridiculous response by Samsung, The Register,
based in the U.K., spoke with SanDisk and the honesty was quite refreshing. The card manufacturer admitted to a problem in the production of a small number of its 32GB and 64GB microSD cards. The manufacturing problem has already been repaired. If you have a SanDisk card that is failing, whether it is on the Samsung Galaxy S III or any other device, you can contact the company and receive a replacement
