saluqi, you must have been holding your mouth the right way when performing that procedure, is all I can say.
Hopefully you won't need to do it again, as the results may not be as good, am hoping it's never needed for the lifetime of the card.
Just by stroke of luck, the first card in that video is the very same one that I have & I have a 16GB of the same one on the way Monday (tomorrow) via UPS. Transcend cards has always worked well for me (their card readers also, though the USB 3.0 version, as mentioned, gets hot under hard use), now I know what to do when these 'acts up'. Which leads me to wonder, just how many of these cards has been returned to the OEM (via RMA) & done the same, after the fix, the 'technician' likely used the HP Format tool on these cards to delete all personal content & flashed the cells to like new again, and resells as 'refurbished' or 'open box' for 50% to 75% off? At the cost of these, would have to eat the loss, as I also back these up to two different externals, am not sending my personal content to an OEM.
The only other card of the type that I have that would be faster (if I opened it) is the 32GB Samsung Pro Class 10 SDHC. The price has soared upwards since I ordered on 07/09/2015 (15 months ago & still sealed), there was a typo on the site that I & many took advantage of (sold out in 30-40 minutes), was priced less than the EVO per GB, this SDHC card should never had sold for $16.99, rather $26.99, though Amazon honored the mistake. In fact, I had ordered the 16GB EVO, and Amazon had yet to ship my package after 5 days (am not a Prime member, yet soon will be), so was able to cancel the order for the 16GB EVO at $13.99 & grab the 32GB PRO for just $3 more bucks. Plus a 2x faster card.
And here's the card laying on my notebook, taken sometime back. It should be a fast card, maybe too fast for a 2008 (when I purchased) Panasonic LS80 LUMIX 8.1MP. Though I now have another 32GB card in it, however is one of those tiny cards that slides into a standard SDHC card adapter. Every picture I take with this (& similar cards of different brands on promo for under $10) when something is in motion there's blur in it, whereas the original 1GB PNY SD card didn't. Back when we took pics of the granddaughter on the merry go round, all was fine, and this is a Class 4 card. Now why would a Class 10 card perform worse, is the million dollar question? Quality for price?
BTW, I've purchased many such items & remained sealed for 2-3 years, though had the Samsung EVO arrived instead (not my fault that Amazon ships slow to non-Prime members), would had opened & placed in the camera. That PRO card is going into a semi-hidden wireless security camera that'll be constantly be uploading movement to OneDrive, so a thief will be caught (the copy on the card won't be the only one available). In fact, 2-3 years back, was cleaning out a drawer, and found a HDD that I had ordered 5 years earlier for a notebook with a 2.5" IDE version, brand new & forgotten, maybe because in the meantime the notebook had failed of other causes before it's arrival. I evidently tossed the package in a drawer and for 5 years, never looked back, other than to add more.
Only after ordering the IBM T42 notebook a few years back, I was suspecting that I had one on hand, kept looking & looking, and finally struck pay dirt, a week later. It was new & sadly, the entire 5 year warranty passed by while in there, yet at the same time was lucky, because the only new ones & some of the listings were probably bogus, were also of the 5,400 rpm type, mine was 7,200 rpm & brand spanking new, even smelled like it once removed from the dusty package & unwrapped from layers of bubble wrap & then in a small box.
I'd bet that many folks would be surprised at what we have on hand & have forgotten.
Glad that you found the fix, have bookmarked the YouTube video!
If by chance the Transcend 16GB model does the same, will order the 16GB Samsung Pro version on Amazon, it still reads at 90MB/sec, though reads are reduced to 50MB/sec. Still not shabby.
