I search many forums and have common problems, but there is not answers. People address issues what is obviously Samsung's hardware or OS and no one from Samsung to answer.
The problem is SD card handling. When I restart tablet it does not recognize SD or said damaged or should be reformat (format). I have to remove an insert card and it does not working. A few time reinsert and remove lead success. Nothing missing in card and it works fine. When I try to open some PDF or some pictures it said it is not PDF or picture missing. Files are corrupted. Again removing an reinsert card (again a few time) lead to success and to see files can be opened.
So where is Samsung to answer? Does anybody have an idea what is problem?

SD card is fine, I can read all on my pc.
Thanks in advance if anybody respond.

Are you sure your SD card is working perfectly fine on other gadgets? Have you tried turning it off and turning it back on before you insert the card? You can also check to see if you have a PDF reader already downloaded to your tab?

I think there is a problem with your SD card. You should try your SD card on other devices. It will give you a clear idea, is it ok or not?

I have the same problem. In fact, I've got two cards (the same model), one for the tablet and one for my phone. I swap the cards and the problem remains in the tablet but both work ok in the phone, so I guess it's the proof the problem is the tablet. Pitfully, there is no alternative ROM for this model (sm-t230), I looked everywhere to put lollipop but it seems that nobody built it.
