It happened once on my Samsung Galaxy s8 phone which resulted in reformatting so everything was lost. 

 

Like yours it worked ok in other devices and appeared to work after reformatting. 

 

I need up just not using the Sd Card and I have none fitted in my Note 9 now. 

 

I back up to other places as a safe guard. 

 

If you wish to continue with a Sd Card I'd suggest to buy another. 

 

Technology can glitch with accessories being fine with one device and temperamental with others!!

Hi @SithLord, as @BandOfBrothers say's you should format it, if it contains data back that data up in a device it works in to a cloud data such as Google or Windows, then format it. Some devices can use a card without formatting it but Samsung devices in general need it to be formatted :smiling-face: if you are unsure on how to do this let us know.

Oh yeah I know how so that's not a problem,..

Got a new 256gb coming this week so I'll probably go without until then and put this one in another device.

I had the same issue. Deleted the Android and Lost. Dir folders from the sd card rebooted and haven't had the issue since. Just go to my files and on ur external sd card there will be a folder called Android just delete it. Your system will generate a new one when you reboot. May be the Android folder from our previous phones causes some compatibility issue.

Just an update on this. Deleting the android folder just provided a placebo effect. It didnt really help, the error was back after a few hours. The only thing i could do is back up the data and format the sd card. Quite a few images on my sd card were corrupt. Might be worth a try if you're facing the issue though.

I'm unsure of how to do this.
1. Can someone help?? I've been getting this error since I got my S9. I removed and replaced SD card. Reformatted it, and error was back within a few hours. Also, a few weeks ago, I suddenly lost probably 2000+ pics and videos. Can't find them anywhere. I'm devastated as there were some realllly important ones that were lost. 2. Are these 2 things related?? I'll admit, I didn't have a PC until Dec, so I have no clue how to back up my data. I'm hoping that the default settings periodically backed up my phone/files and all is not lost, but I don't even know where to begin to back everything up, where to back it up to, etc.
3. What if some things are stored on my phone or SD Card or Google Account or Gmail?
4. Can I back it all up to Cloud? 5. How?? I'm terrified to do anything to my phone because alot of this is over my head/computer literacy level and I'm terrified of losing everything.
6. Can someone puh-leeeeease help me, or am I a lost cause?
(I'm not even sure how or if I'll get notified if anyone responds. I've never been to this forum before. I just Googled exactly what the error message says and this was top recommendation. You can email me at annemlemt@gmail.com to reach me in case I don't get notified of a response here.
TIA to anyone willing to help out this panicked, confused, computer illiterate, blonde!!!

Same problems with A50. With original Samsung microSD card, 125GB. At insert he ask for formatting. After 20 minutes the phone is restarting, asking again for formating , followed by another restart, another format ...

Just insane !

The SD card work very well in any computer !

Samsung it is a brand name already, but they just follow the path of Iphone, Nokia who abuse the consumer !

It has been going on for months with the S9, now the Note 9. Ruining many people's SD card photos & contents and Samsung is not acknowledging that there is a problem with their phones. They are blaming it on everyone's SD cards, even if the SD card is Samsung branded! Please skim through this extensive thread

But I don't think it's related..

I'm literally the only person who had this on note and fixed it by removing the android folder off the sd which contained device specific data off the S9.

I still have not had the notification  since.

The 256gb evo+ select arrived so put it in, formatted in phone and no errors reported so far.

Card is known, tested and verified genuine so should be ok.

The sandisk ultra 128gb that was inside the S9+ then note9 that gave the corruption error, was plugged into PC to get files off, 

139 pictures, 17 videos were corrupted, yet some of those files were played on S9+ a few days prior perfectly fine (holiday pictures and videos)

I also noted that 54gb of music files had not one single error.

So, only the DCIM/CAMERA folder had any kind of corruption, and totalling over 150 personal pictures or videos gone.

Luckily, my S9+ was set to backup in Google photos so they are not lost, just the videos.

The card has since been formatted and passed a H2testW full scan.

Something happened when switching the card from S9 to note9, but what exactly, is a mystery to me.
