    Have a problem with SanDisk Ultra 64GB Micro SD XC I card. It is disappearing like Harry Houdini from SP3, after that it has to be reinserted again to work for while and vanishing again from the system. Do not have any problems with Kingston 2GB Micro SD card. 64 GB card is not loosing any data. Uninstalled and reinstalled drivers, reset SP3 to factory settings, no fix.....

    If there are no problems with the 2GB card then the problem most likely is with your 64GB card. Is it a new card? Did you try to reformat the card and see if that fixes it? If I had to guess, I bet it's a defective card, one of my friends had that happen in his Samsung phone, his card worked fine for a year and then it just stopped. I tried my card in his phone and it worked fine, but his card stopped working.

    Cards go bad all the time, I say try another card and see if that has the same problems. I have a 64gb sandisk ultra and haven't had any issues.

    Swap it out, most likely a dud.

    I agree. Cards do go bad for no apparent reason.

    Stranger things have happened. I've had USB thumb drives that all of a sudden would only work in one machine, and SD card that did what you're describing.

    Had the same thing happen to my 64gb card, it would have to pull it out and reinsert it to work. It was brand new sandisk ultra class 10 . Bought a 128gb for $100 and it works fine.

    I have a SanDisk Ultra 64GB card that I used in my SPro2 and now have in my SP3. When I inserted the card the first time, it would not read it. I had to restart and then it saw the card. This was on day one. I've had no problems since. I have my music and movies on it and use it daily.

    It has happened to me too. Took a while to realize it was the thumb drive. A real head scratcher.
