    Hi there,
    I have a ScanDisk 64GB Micro SD card (the one that fits in Android phones)
    I don't know what's up with it but it's not working right.
    So I tried to add a file to it while the phone was plugged in via cable to the computer. Everything's okay until I detach the wire. At that point the new file disappears.
    Also, when I try to delete files everything's fine until I unplug then all the files reappear again.
    I've tried to format several different ways including one way using Windows Powershell, and another using third party software, it says things like "action cannot be completed"
    It doesn't seem to matter what I do, I can now, neither delete or add files via the computer.
    The same happens when I try putting the card into an adapter and plugging into the computer.
    I'd like to know if my card is totally beyond repair
    I'd like to know if I can format in some way and reinstall the files
    And I'd like to know why and how this happened to make sure it doesn't happen again
    I use Windows 7. 64bit
    Kind regards gin

    Memory cards have a finite lifespan, lasting approximately 10,000 to 100,000 write/erase operations.
