    I had nothing but problems with a SanDisk 32GB Class 4 card, in my regular ol' RAZR. (See my other post in the RAZR Support forum.) Maybe the newer HD versions are a little different in some way.

    Returned it and got a Microcenter branded 32GB card, Class 10. It was long-formatted in Win7 with FAT32 and 16kb allocation chunk. Then erased/formatted in the device. So far, it has worked fine.

    It took quite a while for all the pics/vids to show up in My Gallery (about 3.6GB worth), I assume to make all the thumbnail files. It certainly would drain a lot of battery for the first day or 2 after I loaded all the data, and the stock ICS battery page would show Android OS using 50%+ on the usage even with the phone sitting idle doing nothing else...... had never seen that before (normally the screen uses the most).

    Anyways, I now have about 15GB of music on the new Microcenter card, and I did the "Shuffle All" thing yesterday while working outside for a few hours. It worked fine, but I'm going to keep an eye on it regardless due to all the comments about the Class 10 cards. If anything goes awry, I'll certainly post back.

    I'm going to let this thing run until probably past the holidays, and then burn on 215 and see if I can increase battery life. Maybe even go nuts and root it. Or better yet find a way to upgrade to a Maxx HD without breaking the bank.

    Can't say if it helps for those with issues since I haven't had any myself on ICS, JB leak, JB OTA, or any of the custom ROMs I've ran on my Razr HD so far(knock on wood).

    What's next?

    @ lovemyram4x4
    What do you think will be your next cell phone?
    I'm thinking of getting the RazrHD while waiting for something better.

    I know in the sound buis. stay away from Sandisk they are just the worst.
    pay a few bucks more and get a better quality card
    I like the transend cards or the samsung cards on e-bay are good just get a class 10 for Video speed


    Anonymous just got the Maxx Hd and love it so far only had it a few days maybe the SG S4 down the road?/ who knows heck this maxx hd is smokin' good for a while


    Axem get rid of the Sandisk I bet your problems go with it

    Jesse I deal with expensive sound equipment and were told never install a sandisk of any kind because of all the problems. There just funky junk
    My own personal would be Samsung or mostly Transend if I can find a buy on them

    Save your money & use the Class 4 or 6 depending upon the the amount of pictures you have. Speed is for read & write, I'll be back w/a place that will better explain it to you. I use 4's & my speed is OK & I save money doing it.

    I know this is a little off subject about what you all are discussing. But I have the first SD card that came with my OG droid into my RAZR HD and it seems to be working fine. But I realized that I can't find out how to move apps to the SD card, it doesn't show an option like that other droids I've had. Is it because of my SD card being old and out of class? It's a class 2 16 GB Sandisk.
