    I got an error message that the SD card was unexpectedly removed. Could it have just died? With the other issues I've been having I'm more inclined to think it is a software issue. Have tried actually removing and reinstalling the card but the phone does not detect it. Anyone run into this?

    Insert first your SD card on other phone / device just to be sure.

    I'll need to get an adaptor. I'll probably buy a new card since I wanted more than 16gb anyway. If that doesn't work I'll know it is a phone issue.

    Very odd.

    I've never seen a MicroSD just die.

    I think it's software.

    Seems like quite the coincidence if it just died given all the other issues I'm having. Blackberry support just requested I do a factory reset to help with other issues. I'm going to buy a larger SD card regardless... hopefully the reset helps.

    Not that uncommon for an SD card to just die. Had several that did just that from well known brands. Last SanDisk I bought was pretty disappointing as it didn't make it a year. Samsung card has been good for quite some time.

    Well, not because you haven't seen it personally doesn't mean it didn't happen on others.

    How to fix a 'bad' SD card on a Windows 10 computer:
    1. Use SDFormatterv4 (from www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4) and set Option-Format Size Adjustment to ON before you format the card
    2. Next open an elevated Command Prompt (right click to run as admin)
    3. type the following and press enter
    4. format d: /x /fs:FAT32 /a:1024 /v:MySDCard

    The result should be similar to this:
    Insert new disk for drive D:
    and press ENTER when ready...
    The type of the file system is EXFAT.
    The new file system is FAT32.
    Verifying 58.2 GB
    34291 bad sectors were encountered during the format. These sectors
    cannot be guaranteed to have been cleaned.
    The specified cluster size is too small for FAT32.
    Format failed.

    It took over an hour to reformat my Silicon Power 64 GB microSD which worked fine on my BB Priv until the Android Marshmallow update however bad sectors were found so perhaps the card was already failing before the OS update.

    If no bad sectors are found, then format once more with SDFormatterv4 and you should be fine.
