    Hey guys
    I have the 64gb sandisk micro SD card(sdxc) for my gs4and lately I've been having problems with my saved pics. They show that logo with the lighting bolt and the face implying that the photos are corrupt. This had happened several times. I would take a photo it would be on there for awhile but eventually it would become corrupt. I read somewhere that the gs4 doesn't cope well with the 64gb card for pics.
    Anybody have any suggestions? It would suck to have to get a new card, especially because I got a great deal on the 64gb last black Friday awhile back.
    Hoping I could solve this. I rely on it a lot to take pics of class notes, some which just got deleted...-_- thanks again in advance.

    I also meant to mention other wierd issues. Old pics that I would delete would reappear after turning on the phone again. I don't know why. I figured deleting old pics to clear memory would help but I guess not. I also noticed that I'm able to view more pics on my PC when my card is in the adaptor.

    You are correct. The S4 does not cooperate well at all with any SD card larger than 32GB. Nobody can understand why Samsung has not admitted it's a big problem. Some very old 64GB cards seem to work but not newer ones.

    I appreciate your feedback. Do you think there would be anyway to solve the issue?

    No. Once the card stops working correctly it's usually unusable from then on. Something about the mechanics of the S4 tends to destroy the card.

    I mean I haven't had any problems storing music and other media. Should I just get a 32gb?

    Music does not seems to be an issue. Pics are.

    It appears to be S4 specific.

    So I guess I should downgrade to 32gb? Would formatting the stick I have now do anything? What a deal breaker I had no complaints until now..

    You should be ok with a 32.

    Does anybody think that my 64gb memory stick is actually damaged by the phone?? Or is it simply that the phone doesn't play well with the stick??

    Wait so the card is actually destroyed? Like if I was to use it with another device would I experience the same issue?

    You can certainly try to reformat it in another devices but most people have found that it won't work. Maybe yours will.

    My friend has also suggested that I partition it to 32gb hopefully that'll solve the problem.

    Do you think sandisk or any other source would let me turn this card in for another one for free???

    I don't think so. If you purchased it from a local store you might try taking it back.

    My S3 had problems with non San Disk media. When I converted to San Disk class 10 memory 64gb it solved wife and I problems. I moved that memory to my S5. Does the S4 prefer San Disk?
