Same problem for my gf and I.
She got a message about sdcard unmounting a few months ago, and didn't realise that the sdcard died and hasn't work until now. She only realised this when I told her about my own xperia z whose sdcard fried about 2 weeks ago.
This is a serious problem. Some sort of legal action should be undertaken I reckon, esp. if sony's not acknowledging this issue and people using various sdcard brands and capacities are getting this problem.

I have the same problem. All my important data on SD card gone!!!
Aimee said, "It may be worth contacting the SD card manufacturer."
So where which department do I contact as my SD card is made by Sony.
My Xperia Z and the SD Card are 5 months old. Can I get a one-for-one exchange on the SD card? The warranty reads "If this product proves defective in workmanship or materials when used in accordance with the guidelines and conditions presented in the instruction manual, Sony will repair or replace this product with an equivalent product free of charge." When I purchased the phone, the SD card was inserted by one of the personnel at Sony Center. I have neither removed nor formatted the card since first day of purchase. Does that constitute "with the guidelines and conditions presented in the instruction manual?"

I had exactly the same issue.
This was quickly resolved by removing the SD card from another device (my Blackberry) and putting it into my Xperia Z. Unlike my new SD card, this one was recognised. After clicking "unmount" (Settings > Storage > Unmount) on the SD card from my Blackberry and removing it from the Xperia Z, I inserted the new one again and it worked fine.

have you tried to connect SD card itself to pc and then re-formate it to NTFS? and then connect sd card back into your phone which it then shall popup saying you need to formate it before usage so then formate it through phone and hopefully the sd card will be working again
also if your not able to read the data on sd card when it's connected to pc then use this program http://www.easeus.com/datarecoverywizard/free-data-recovery-software.htm that should be able to scan your sd card find files on it and then it will let you to recive copy of all data it finds on the sd card

Have you removed the card without unmounting?

It just happen to me. (ZR, Android 4.3)
I got message "SD card unexpectedly removed" (sure i did not remove it!)
My 32 Gb card was only 6 month old.
I'll try to recover data later. That is so frustrating...
