AARRGGHHHH!!!! Again! My Moto 3G again does not recognize the microSD that I installed a few months ago as external memory.

Now not only the card is not recognized, also it is not readable even by a computer or other device.

So the card AND all its content are gone.

Now I have installed another microSD that I had laying around, this time as internal memory. Hope it works,

If I were richer I'd have trashed the **bleep** mobile and bought another one.

NEVER EVER I will buy a Motorola mobile of any sort again.

Also I will make all efforts to review these mobiles negatively wherever I can.

I had to buy three cards before I found one that work had to get the fastest one I could find SanDisk Extreme PRO  card. Have not had any trouble since getting the SanDisk Extreme PRO. But I spent about $50 on cards. I will never ever ever buy a phone again with only 8 gigs of internal memory. I am constantly running out of space because some apps are written to only install to internal memory and will not go to the card.

Though I am quite desperate at this point, I cannot resist to add another post to this long thread. There a many similar threads, but this one seems most active. Though I am using a Moto X, the problem is the same. I lost three SD cards early on and realized that using SD cards as Internal memory is just not an option for my Moto. Now after 7 months of flawless activity my SanDisk 64 ultra has quit on me too. After re-formatting in Windows the Moto recognizes it again, and silly me, i tried to use it as Internal memory. The Moto lost connection with the card while it was being formatted. Yet another card lost as it is also not recognized anymore in Windows. Just as my other cards. Does someone have an idea how to resolve that, can I assume they are lost? 

Another issue I have is that my Moto will not recognize any other SD card after it loses its SD-card. The only option I have is to factory reset the whole thing. Yes, I will buy another high speed SD card and use it as external storage but it remains very frustrating. I am using apps (Spotify, Sygic Nav) that simple will only store their data on internal memory. My 16Gig space is completely filled. If I just would have known before purchasing...

Last comment; I am deeply disappointed about the lack of ownership from Lenovo on this issue. The best solution was from a moderator that commented "I am not a fan either".

Since i replaced Sandisk Ultra 32Gb with Extreme Pro 32Gb, all is fine (cross my fingers since it is working from 2 months ago, the Ultra card last 2-3 weeks).

 

BUT : I use the Ultra card inside my daugther new laptop that had only emmc 32Gb memory inside in order to install and use Linux instead of Windows 10 that was too much for this little laptop. The Ultra card is working very well since those two months...

 

There si something wrong with Hardware OR Android...

As of now, i like both so keep crossing my fingers. :)

Good for you, I was considering the same upgrade, assuming that the issue is caused by read/write speed. Did you set up the pro card as internal memory or external storage?

I have given up with my G3 and given it to a local Scout group. All the cords I bought for t are now working perfectly in other devices.  In my 20+ years doing tech support I have never seen such an awful and unreliable device. As Lenovo seem to have no interest in fixing the issue I will never buy another Motorola device ever again and I will tell all my colleagues and friends to avoid the brand also. I wish the rest of you good luck and goodbye.

I formatted my Sandisc Extreme Pro* as "Internal" memory. Have not had any "card to slow"  or "card missing" errors since installing the card a few months ago.

*Up to 95MB/S  READ AND 90MB/S  WRITE

Re: SD Card Missing Please Reinsert

I have a Moto X Play experiencing the same problem.

 

Using a 32GB ADATA SD card as internal storage. Everything worked fine for months and now frequently pops up with "SanDisk SD card missing" requiring a reboot to remount.

 

I ran the linux utility "badblocks" to check if the SD card was broken, and with a read-only test found 41 blocks that could not be read:

# bacblocks -sv /dev/mmcblk1

Pass completed, 41 bad blocks found. (41/0/0 errors)

 

This is a lower level than applications or filesystem, so reformatting won't fix the problem. This basically means the card is toast and needs to be replaced, so I'm sending it back for warranty.

 

I noticed that I had one photo that any time I tried to open it, it would cause the SD card to be ejected, and another large game that was on the SD card that caused the same behaviour any time I opened it. My guess is that any time you access a file that's stored on one of the corrupt blocks it causes the "SD card missing" behaviour in Android.

 

This is mostly guessing and I have no idea if it's the same problem for everyone, but if so it could be that Motorola hardware is damaging the SD cards or Android is writing to the SD cards non-stop when they're "internal storage" wearing them out much faster than normal.

 

It would be really nice of Motorola could comment..
