    I was having trouble with my SD card. I had to insert the SD card while the phone was plugged into the PC. Since doing that, there were no issues.

    That is strange. Did you try reformat it on a non WP8 device first?

    Guys, I had the same problem...

    Tried 8 SD Card's...yes, 8 different 32Gb cards, including 2 class 10, and none worked. The phone crashed with all 8.

    Than I tried an stupid 16Gb Card and, Voilá...all fine.

    I tried other 16Gb cards and all workded.

    I think our phone doesnt really supports 32Gb cards, only 16Gb.

    Just try an 16gb Card and see what happens...

    Hope it helps

    I had the same issue once on Android. There is this Panasonic Card Formatter on their website. Get the version 2. And try formatting it with that. Also, may be specific brands only work. Like I heard Kingston doesn't work on all phones. Try contacting HTC and ask them.

    Also tried and still not working but, maybe that second thing is my problem. I have 8GB SD card made by "no name" ^^. The best card what I tried was 4th class but I cant remember who made it...
    I wrote to HTC and they said that i should try SD card from their official partner (they offer 10th class card ~30-40$) but is strange that card which was recently formated on PC doesn't work oO, or try to give back it on guarantee to official HTC distributor... Great, new phone which needs to be repair. Good job.

    I am also having problems with mine. It won't switch off with the card inserted and when I try to open anything that uses the card - music or camera apps - they won't start. Remove the card and everything is fine but a 4Gb phone is all but useless to me. The main reason I chose the 8S was because of the expandable storage.

    Same problem here.

    I have a 8GB sd card, and when I insert in into the phone, nothing happens.
    One thing I've noticed, when I format the SD card on my PC using NTFS, then insert it back into the phone, the phone detects the card and says it must format it before I can use it.
    Once the phone formats the card, the card is not longer detected.

    I've had exactly the same issue with the HTC 8S - twice in fact.

    I have been using both cards (official SanDisk) and Windows 8 gets its knickers in a twist while using an app accessing the memory card (media player/photos) causing the app to crash. Rebooting the phone ends up with the SD card not being recognised by the OS. My assumption is that there are config files in the card's root that become corrupted and thus make it invisible to the OS. I am fairly certain this is a Windows 8 issue as opposed to HTC and needs to be addressed. I'd guess that its not more common because most windows phones come with a usable amount of memory on the phone and don't rely/allow memory cards.

    I don't want to re-format my phone tbh - not really a great solution.

    It's a real shame as I love the OS (mostly), but I am thinking of going back to the iPhone where everything just works :(

    What do You mean by "activated on laptop" ? There's no need to activate anything.
    Just put the card into the phone and do the factory reset. This should cause the phone to prepare the SD card to use.
