    I just activated a Note 3 and took installed a 64gb sd card in it, I moved everything over from my gs4's 16gb card to this, but when I accessed the music I see that it created folders for the albums but only transferred maybe a song or two off the album if that at all, most were just empty folders, all my pictures transferred just fine. So I open up the file system on windows explorer and try and delete some of the songs and it tells me that I can't delete it because it is locked or protected, I formatted the card right before I installed it, just curious if this is the sd card or Android messing with me, any ideas how to fix this without formatting this (again) :dry:

    I had similar problems with my 64gb card. When I put it in my computer all the files were there but in my phone many of my music file were missing. I copied every thing to my computer. Copied all the my 32gb card and it was shiny.

    Okay I'll give it a shot here after work. I also have apps crashing a lot more than I did on my S4. Any idea there?

    So far music seems to be accessible, still having a few random apps (Family Guy Quest for Stuff, Cover Art downloader, etc) crash randomly like clockwork, I guess that is another thread for somewhere on here? However, the music is accessible. I've been able to pull up a few books and comics too so far, slowly adding everything back to it again.

    So I think I figured out half of this problem, I think I have a cheap ass SD card, I bought this a few months ago

    http://www.amazon.com/class-Micro-M...sd class 10&tag=androidcentral00-20&m1k=vb_ac

    Saw from another thread that these are garbage and you get what you pay for with it. So I am going to hit up Bestbuy tomorrow and buy a quality one. Any insight on this by chance?
