Re: Lenovo Tab 4 8 plus major issue - micro SD corruption

2018-11-14, 15:45 PM

When people actually mentioned what micro SD cards they used, I was always seeing Samsung micro SD cards. Has anyone had an issue with non-Samsung micro SD cards?

Memory corruption issue was precisely solved by Sept 17 (S0000029& S0000031) updates,  however Jan18 (S0000033) also has no issue

Well I thought this problem had been resolved.... Until I applied the last system update to my Tab 4+ a week or so ago, rebooted and kissed goodbye to my 16GB sd card. Have since plowed through this forum ( wish I'd read/found it earlier).

Will try the  ####3333# in contacts option 3 when I get a replacement sd card, either a Toshiba or Transcend as recommended previously as I also had a SanDisk 16GB Ultra turned to toast in my Moto moby recently.

Re: Lenovo Tab 4 8 plus major issue - micro SD corruption

After over a year of being able to use my SD card this has happened twice to me now, now I'm stuck with a 16gb tablet I can't put anything on and can't afford to just get a new one :(  has there never been a solution to this?

The following experience may be useful;

Tab OS was updated to "TB-8704X_S000031_170915_ROW_TO_TB-8704X_S000033_171123_ROW_WC88F7E2EE_Jan18" i.e. S000033
it was working OK

But once Tab was reset and updated to only "TB-8704X_S000029_170901_ROW_TO_TB-8704X_S000031_170915_ROW_WC73381E1F_Sept17" i.e. S000031 it was also working OK with 64 GB micro SD card

but recently 3 months back as on 05.10.2019, it started corrupting the mice SD card again. Generally a shutdown and restart of Tab solved the problem (solved many times in the range of 20 times in last 3 months). (Ejection of micro SD card at Tablet was also not successful many times) If it is not solved , remove Micr0SD card from Tab and insert it into latest USB micro SD drive and connect to Window 10 PC it will ask for repair , agree to it , it repairs (required twice in last 3 months), remove micro SdD card rom PC and install "in Tablet in switched off Condition.

In view of above repeated corruption issues , (on 05.10.2019 ) the tab is rescued through "Lenovo Moto Smart Assistant 4.4" .
It downloaded "TB_8704X_USR_S000042_1809061031_Q1241_ROW_GB_SCV" i.e. S000042. It is under observation.

The MicroSD card inserted while tab is  ON -but No corruption occurred and 5 times Ejected and mounted-No corruption occurred.
Now it is offering to upgrade to Oreo, I haven't done yet.

A few ppl have commented on file managers not recognising thier SD cards, I can recommend X-plore file manager. 

No adverts, free, up to you if you want to donate. Recognises the SD card, USB devices, online storage, double window in landscape mode with configurable button layout in centre, just to mention a few of it's attributes.

Re: SD card, tried the full format on PC and installed as internal(?) memory in tab and had no problems..... So far.

Also the tip using ####3333# (open Contacts and copy and paste in search box to bring up hidden menu).

Used option 3 to close the SD card log after boot seemed to help at the time, not tried it recently.

I had a San disc one ruined so I got a Samsung Evo plus and it's been ok that way so far it is just super slow it always freezes apps for a min just wonder if anyone else has that prob? I'm guessing it's to do with the tablet not the card :(

Try tip using ####3333# (open Contacts and copy and paste in search box to bring up hidden menu). Use volume + or - to select menu item, I think one option is Clear the cache, also used option 3 to close the SD card log after boot seemed to help at the time, not tried it recently. Norton Clean, small free app to clear junk with NO ads or spam is good. Kaspersky Battery Life kills background apps (allegedly;) Hope that helps 😉

Is there a way to reset it if it doesn't work?
