Re: XPERIA ZR no longer recognizes micro SD card

It seems that your SD card its damaged and its not going to work, you need to get a new SD card, also you could try to reformat the SD card

Re: XPERIA ZR no longer recognizes micro SD card

Thank you for your reply.

As I wrote, I tried reformatting, to no avail.

The card is NOT damaged because it works perfectly in other devices. The ZR obviously thinks it is damaged. 

Unitl I can be certain what causes this error I won't be buying another SD card.  

Anybody else have a clue?

Test a different SD card, if the same thing happen then it might be your Xperia

Re: XPERIA ZR no longer recognizes micro SD card

Wow, that's encouraging :smileysmileywink:

Trying a different uSD right now. 

 

BTW, when I shut off my phone, an SD card icon appears in the top of the screen with a small red cross in it. And there's another SD card icon in the top right (no red cross). Is this normal? Can't find any info on these icons in the ZR manual.

Took the ZR back to the shop. They shipped it for repairs. I'll keep you posted.

Re: MicroSD 32gb Xperia Z Issue / Question

I have a Xperia Z. I just got a Sandisk Ultra SDHC 32 gB. I used to have a Transcend 32gB one which worked fine on the Z for a month or so and now it's half-fried. I've had it for almost 2 years already though. It works fine on a computer (haven't tried putting files in it but the PC can read it) but not on any of my phones (Samsung Galaxy SIII and Nokia Asha 303). I got all my files from it so I'm not really worried about it, just a shame to have lost it. I'm still trying to reformat it though. Crossing my fingers.. I've tried so many times..

Re: MicroSD 32gb Xperia Z Issue / Question

Hi, is there any update about this problem?

I have a 32 g Kingston that worked fine for about 2 months and suddenly I have this SD CARD UNEXPECTEDLY REMOVED message constantly, which drains out the battery in hours. Luckily, the card still works (because I remove it when it first start to happen).

I don't think it's something from Sony. Other phones are having this issue as well. 

Is there a Fix for Android?? It's annoying having only the 8 internal gs!!

Re: MicroSD 32gb Xperia Z Issue / Question

I've got a Xperia Z with a 32gb Kingston card that has been running fine since i first bought it in March, now after an update over the weekend i can't access any of the files on the microSD card.  I figured it was something simple initially, now i've googled teh prolem and it seems to be epidemic, surely if enough people are suffering the problem Sony have got to do something about it, bug fix.

 

I kept getting 'Memory card has been removed unexpectedly' which it hadn't, the phone had updated and now it would seem the memory card is toast, thanks Sony.  Get a grip on this, I was very happy with my phone, note; was.

 

In answer to the posts from staff members, 'trying another card' is the equivalent of 'turning it off and back on again', i'm not a techie and don't claim to be, but the shere volume of people with the exact same problem point towards a problem with the handset.  I appreciate you guys are only trying to dowse the fire, but I wouldn't use a fan to try and blow the fire out.
