    I am unable to use any MicroSD cards in my LP, Windows makes the little chime when a card is inserted but then nothing. I have looked in the device manager and there is 2 "SD Storage Class Controller", one with a yellow exclamation mark which are both under storage controllers.
    Any ideas?

    Did you reinstall the LP? Looks like your sd controller driver is not properly installed.

    My 128GB Sandisc SD Card keeps disappearing after a short time. After boot most of the times it can be accessed (and in the device manager 2 sd storage controller can be found), but after a short while the sd card is gone (only one sd storage controller left). I allready followed shluej advice although both sd card controler did not show a exclamation mark. Still no difference.

    Also having problems with my Sandisk 64GB and 32GB SD Card. Already tried installing the driver like schluej explained, reinstalling the drivers with Lattepandas Driver pack and reinstalling windows, didnt helped much.

    Please, could someone from the lattepanda team investigate in this problem???

    I'm facing the same issue with sandisk 128GB micro SD card. I see 2 SD controllers and one of them has a yellow bang. If I open control panel->hardware devices I see the "Generic 128GB SD card" with a yellow bang. But then it disappears instantly. Looks like a driver issue for sure.
