I have a Samsung 16GB Class 10 Micro SD Card. While I still had my android phone (which died after gracefully hitting the floor) I had two partitions on it - one FAT32 and one EXT. I used the EXT for android apps and although the read and write speeds on both partitions were terrible (~ 35 kb/sec) it worked for the most part on keeping my apps in the SD card.
Now that that phone is dead, I want to reuse this card by putting it into my temporary Nokia.
What I did was the obvious - I put the card in a reader and I completely deleted the two partitions. Afterwards I created a new partition out of the uncallocated space, using FAT32. I set up everything correctly, but after trying to transfer my photos and music, the write speed was around 30 kb/sec AGAIN.
I tried various fixers, micro SD formatters, HP flash tool recovery tools and a ton of other apps. Nothing worked. Did I screw up my card for good or is there hope to get it fixed?
Thanks in advance
Sounds to me as if you have a fake. There are a lot of them around and they sell cheap. The speeds you quote are ridiculously slow as Class 10 supports 10 MB/s as a minimum non-fragmented sequential write speed..I'd buy another card and if it had those speeds you quoted I'd return it.
