    Defective Memory Card

    I bought a 32gb memory card on ebay several months ago, some noname brand, and it has acted strangely a few times, but I haven't really given it a passing thought. Today, I went to transfer my itunes library from my macbook to my phone. I tried drag/drop, I tried isyncr, I tried doubletwist, etc. Every time I transferred stuff to my card, it came up as unknown artist and ProAmp didn't play it. I then accidentally drag/dropped onto my internal storage, and the songs have the proper artist names, album art, etc.

    My question is this par for the course with any sd card, and sort of luck of the draw, or do I just need to get a better card, like SanDisk or something? Thank you very much

    Unfortunately it's very likely you got a fake card. Try SD Card Tester or a similar app to test the capacity of the card that you have - be sure you test more than the 2 gigs or whatever the default size is.

    Hmm, it passed SD Card Tester's test. It's holding about 7gb worth of stuff too, between photos and whatnot. But I was trying all day to successfully put songs on the card to no avail, and it works perfectly when putting music onto the internal storage.

    No-name SD Cards = Fake 99.9% of the time. Best thing to do - chuck it in the trash and buy a name brand card (you'll thank yourself later )

    If you need help, and I appear to be offline, shoot me a msg on Gtalk, or PM me and I'll respond as soon as I possibly can!!

    Just check the seller's reputation before you buy from Amazon and never buy any memory card that reads bulk on it.

    I look it up, that seller has a great reputation with over 200K transactions. Plus is a good deal.

    Here's the Lexar 32gb Class 10 card: Amazon.com: Lexar High Speed MicroSDHC 32 GB Class 10 Flash Memory Card with Reader LSDMI32GBSBNAR: Electronicst is quite cheap now..........but I might still hold off on it personally because I don't think I need that much space. I have 8gb now and only use about 4gb up.....plus my phone's memory still has about 9.5gb left


    Done with this.
