    Is anyone else having issues with their SD Card randomly disconnecting and having to be reseated?

    This has come up before in other threads. I believe the problem may be with the hardware and require a return.

    You mean the SP is bad or the SD card? I doubt there are that many bad SD cards if it is getting lots of buzz. Feels to me more like a software bug since it reconnects after i reseat it.

    Some reported bad SD cards, a few returned the Surface due to bad spring load mechanism.

    I had the same problem as well, and it was very stressful to deal with. For me what I had to do, was do a repair of the sd card itself. After it was successful, I had no problems with it since. Not sure if it will work in your case though.

    I had the same problem for the first couple weeks. However for the last couple of weeks it has worked fine. Not sure if I'm just getting lucky or the contacts/mechanism have "worn in".

    This happens on the Windows 8 Phones too. Have not seen it on the Surface Pro so far...

    I had this turned out to be the SD card. Looked fine but didn't stay connected. Luckily it was only a Samsung 8gb one.

    Is there a spring loaded mechanism when you push in the card? Mine seems to go in then just stop, it doesn't 'click in'. It's recognised and I can access it, but after a while the card just goes offline.
