Sandisk admits that they produced some bad microSD cards. Here’s how it came about. 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 spoke with a Samsung representative and told him how the card had been ejected one day, and not recognized by his phone after that. He added that he had read about similar problems being experienced by other Galaxy S III owners. The Samsung rep told him not to believe everything he reads in forums and apparently offered no other help. Great customer service right? Another 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 his battery.
So after this, The Register spoke with SanDisk and they were at least honest. SanDisk 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. So now if you have a SanDisk card that is failing on any other device, you can contact the company and receive a replacement. Good to see people are getting help with it finally.
