Solved I cannot write to SD card permanently. Any thoughts?

November 28, 2015 at 17:30:08
Specs: Linux
I've got a 32 GB Sandisk micro sd and the files, folders, etc come back no matter what. I can delete them, they come back. I format it, they come back. I save to it and the new files save and I can use them but all of a sudden voila, there gone and the old ones are back. I've deleted them and then partioned in Fat32, and ext3, but...... Yep still asking the same ? ?
I read somewhere that SD cards have a "shelf life" of writing. Is this what's going on? I hope not because it has been used a lot but I don't see how companies get away with making something that limits the use of our own property. That's like selling me a house and telling me I can only open the door so many times before it explodes.
The card has been used mostly for saving/transferring music and picture files between Android phones and tablets to or from PS3 consule and Windows programs. It does have some PS 3 data on it but everything on it is backed up I just want to be able to use it again and if it means losing everything on it so be it.
Any insight would be awesome. Thx in advance.

The symptoms are unusual. About the only way you can prove this is to see I it happens on another SD card.

They don't have a "shelf life", ie they don't die of old age. However, there are a limited number times you can flash them before they wear out, same applies to other pen drives. Things are simply made to a cost and sometimes you can just be unlucky.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Thanks for the feedback.It is appreciated. I have tried another sd card on almost all the same devices and it works fine. like i say everything on it is backed up so I'm not real worried about it but it would be nice to know if this is something I did wrong for future knowledge.
Thanks Again

It's difficult to imagine anything you could do wrong which would cause this. I think it has just life expired.
