I've had my 521 for about 3 months now, with no issues. I finally bought an SD card a few days ago (Lexar class 6 16 GB). I use it for music storage only. It worked fine for a few days.
Today, it started giving messages that my SD card is ejected. When I reboot the phone, it shows (in the storage section in settings) that it's there, but as soon as I try and play music, it gives the error and no longer shows up anywhere. Anyone else have issues, or should I get a new card?

Anytime I boot my phone it tells me that its having trouble with my SD card. Its an old 8G card from my Blackberry. Funny thing is once it tells me that, it reads and writes to the card fine. In another thread others were having the same problem, so I think these Lumias are very picky about SD cards.

I have had a bad sd card before. So that' not unusual. Mine was a cheap $5 card though. If you have receipts, return the card and get it replaced. It's always helpful to have an sd full size adapter so a computer can read the micro sd card. They are cheap, and sometimes comes with the smaller cheaper sd cards.

Thanks for the input.
I borrowed a USB adapter, and have connected it to the computer without any issue. All the data is still on the micro SD card, and it works with no problems in the PC (Windows 7).
So maybe it's not a problem with the card, but with how it functions in the phone, maybe it's picky. I wonder why it worked fine for several days though.
I'm going to wipe it out and reformat it, and see if that allows it to be used again.

I did wipe and format the card, inserted it into the phone, and then formatted it again using the phone. I copied a bunch of music files back onto it, and it's working again so far (knock on wood).
I don't remember that I actually formatted the card before use (though I might have) so maybe it's a possibility that it was caused by that. Either way, I will use it and see how it goes now. :)

I haven't put music on my sd card yet. Do you just put on your mp3 files? Loose, or in folders (within the main music folder of course!)? and how does it sound? Thanks.
