    Weird. The SD card in my phone suddenly went corrupt. 64gb now only showing 16gb. Is this normal? Had to buy a new one.

    Thanks. Glad I don't have a lot of apps on my phone. Gotta see what pics I lost though.

    My fiances 64gb just stopped working altogether. A notification came up that just said "SD Card Damaged", couldn't format it or anything.
    Only 2 years old. Kind of annoying.

    Yeah. I use SD cards in all my cameras and as a working videographer/photographer it can be much more than annoying. I dump everything immediately after every shoot but it still concerns me. But whatcha gonna do!
  6. Okay I am strangely enough in the market for an Micro SD card for a portable studio recorded. What brands would be the best and most reliable? what are your finding?
  7. There is a rudimentary disk repair tool in chkdsk that might fix a corrupt file system on an sd card.

    If you google: "chkdsk sd card Windows 10" you will find instructions on how to use the tool.

    Distributor (reputable) is probably more important than brand (the folks counterfeiting/faking cards are just as happy to counterfeit/fake branding, too.)

    From a reputable distributor, I've had good luck so far with Sony, Samsung and Transcend. I think I've used Sandisk as well.

  9. I wouldn't consider it bad until I couldn't format it. Did you try re-formatting it?

    About how old was the card?
    I've had mine for just over five years now, no issues so far. It's been in a few different phones during that time.

    However, I got one for my Roku and it failed in less than six months.
