SD CARD ERROR ON S9+

Navigator
Edit:: Why should we keep purchasing new sd cards every time??

I had a 128 gb ScanDisk card in my first s9+ bút I smashed the screen and got a replacement phone. I had the error message with the first phone but no real issues though. When I put the card into the replacement phone it was fine for a while but one day the whole phone froze which was unusual as it never happened. I had to power it off and restart it. When it started the error message came up and baaaammmmm next day it didn't recognize my card anymore. 

I changed it to a Samsung 64gb card a couple of days ago and no problems whatsoever yet.

Not looking foward to putting my Sandisk in my S9 now, will be honest, somehow I've never had the error messages but had my sd card corrupted and lost pics/vids etc.. No issues with my 64gb card, just the issue of filling it!!

For me it was the opposite. I always got the error messages but not one file or pic was corrupted. Then one day it just some pics got corrupted and then they same evening the phone froze ....then the card was fried.
I am hoping with the Samsung 64gb card it won't happen again.
You should try it and see what happens. Other this strange error message and corrupting files/pictures it is still a spectacular phone though. It's a shame Samsung didn't address the problem.

Yep, totally agree, it's a great phone that I'm more than happy with.. Just a shame (major understatement) that Samsung haven't done anything about this when it is now affecting the S10 as well!

My sd card was installed from beginning and stopped working at all in just a few month. I try a new one now and when the next card is ***** as well then I hope samsung is reading it and do some against it. I'm pissed about it. 256 gig ad card so broken that I not even can read it anymore on any pc or anything else

Hey, don't bother, Samsung did not do anyting about it. It's been a long standing issue, since the s9 and s9+ was produced and pushed out to the market. Samsung does not take responsibility for it. Recommends everyone to use original Samsung memory cards instead. 

I bit the bullet when my ScanDisk 128 GB card was fried and put the 64 GB card into the phone that I originally got with the phone when I purchased it. I guess they already knew what was the problem that's why they gave me a free Samsung memory card with it. 

Anyway since I'm using the original Samsung memory card, no problem with the phone. No corrupted files, no error messages. Works like a dream. 

I suggest you to invest into an original Samsung memory card. It's not that expensive nowadays but make sure it is original Samsung product. 

Hope I helped.

One more thing.... make sure you set your phone to automatically save everything to virtual clouds. So you won't lose files, pictures and data.

You wanna exchange my cell and reimburse me for my 256 gig sd card? Then yes let's talk. 

I love samsung but the sd card is a big problem for me. Private and business as well. I need to save my business stuff and now I run with extra laptop around. Feels like the 80's
