Re: SD Card (Samsung Evo Plus 256GB) Media Can not be seen

Okay I figured out that the card is a fake card and is slower than it should have been. This could explain why long videos are not saved correctly

I figured out that the card is a fake and therefore of course doesn't have the correct write and read speed

Thank you for the update, @annabellb81368. How was the card verified to be fake? Are you now able to record long videos and play them back using your camera?

It turned out that the Samsung SD card was a fake one and therefore the speed of writing and reading stuff was way much too slow

Sorry @mariustanya ,I totally forgot to answer to your question.

 

I figured out that the card only had 2-5MB/s of writing speed and the side of the card was black instead of white and on the back of th card was written "AOBY1708TCN" and "Made in Taiwan" as described in a post (https://eu.community.samsung.com/t5/SSD-Monitore-IT/microSD-Karte-EVO-Original-oder-Fake/td-p/395817).

 

With a card of better write and read speed the save and watching of (long) videos is no problem
