Well like the topic title says, I think my Micro SD card is courrupted because whenever I put some songs in they end up getting corrupted and when i try to play some songs, some of them appear ok and some of them give me a message saying, "Sorry Cannot Play File". My music file are perfectly normal when i downloaded them. I tried doing everything reseting the sd card etc

Any ideas how to solve this problem? or is my Sd card actually corrupt? Please let me know. Thank you!

It sounds like the sort of thing that happens with a fake memory card. There's a lot of them about, and although things look fine when you are copying to the card, when you try and read the data back, then you suddenly notice

Here's a couple of links on the subject,

If it was me, i'd throw the card away, and replace it with something i know is completely genuine from a reputable dealer

If its a fake, i'd have no way of knowing simply by looking at the picture and details. It might be a genuine Kingston card, or it might be a fake Kingston card. Which is why (although I love ebay for a lot of things) I'd NEVER use it for flash memory.

I'd either buy it from a reputable physical store, or an online retailer who i can trust.

(I've used 7dayshop in the past)
