Question Micro SD unstable?

I have never had a stable Micro SD card over 16GB is this just my bad luck or known problem? Never had a problem with CF cards - Once I start filling them up over about 6GB thats it problems - tried several makes and different PCs.

I hope it's not a common problem, because I bought a generic 128GB Micro SD HC card from CeX late last year for 20.

The only difference between that card and others I have bought (8GB or less) is that it's formatted with the exFAT filesystem.

Get what you pay for I guess, brought a high quality, class 10 32gb samsung Micro SD card years ago and never once had a problem with it. Still going strong to this day.

If they are bogus then Nintendo has a big problem, since they are the only real way to have some proper storage space for the upcoming Switch

For SDHC there should be no difference between 16Gb and 32Gb.
Any device or software supporting any SDHC doesn’t save any hassle supporting only 16Gb.
There’s no such thing as a 128Gb SDHC card, it’s a new can of worms after 32Gb,
with old devices, just like the change from the prior SD cards with 2Gb max capacity.

I changed my microSD card reader for a much better one and the results are much better but I still have some broken directorys and files.

I've had microsd in phones for many years, microsd in my garmin GPS, a half dozen raspberry Pi's, etc. Only issues I've ever had is mySql will bork during a power failure but it does that on a regular disk too.
