    Another SD card problem!

    Heyyyy, i recently got the s3 and i had an 8 gb card in there that worked fine... untill i purchased a new 64gb card and now when i put it in my phone it says "preparing card" and then says "you can now safely remove card". i looked all over for an answer to this problem but i cant. Please help!! (Put it into terms someone not so technology savvy can understand please)

    Here is the card i got (people say all they had to do was just put it in their phone and it worked)

    64GB cards have been known to not play real well with Android. Especially the newer ones.... I would make sure it is formatted properly and also try to restart the phone like offered above.... Vulcan1600 had similar issues with a 64GB card he had purchased. It would work then not work then work then after a few days it finally died....

    Funny thing is, those new class 10 ultimate cards are supposed to be optimized for android. I'll never buy another now that I know there's an issue. I thought it was something I had done.

    I'd go for a refund and get a class 6 64gb or 32gb as I have heard a few issues with 64gb cards being dumb with these devices. I unfortunately can't get a refund.

    Alright well i finally got it to give me the option of formatting it and it formats it and says "Blank SD card or has unsupported file system". If the file system thing is the problem is there any way i could fix that (like i said not to familiar with this stuff haha)

    What are you formatting it to. FAT32 OR EXTFAT. I'm assuming you're on windows. But I'll tell you, I formatted mine about 20 times in every way I could think of
