    Default [Warrenty Info: SanDisk]: How to RMA sandisk memory cards even when they are bought from abroad

    So long story short, I got some cards in Sep, 2012 from Singapore. Among them one 16GB MIcroSDHC Class 10 died. I could not detect or format it.

    This is how I RMAed it.

    First I went to Sandisk USA site and chatted with an agent.
    Reason is I think only US site has a chat option.
    URL: http://kb.sandisk.com/app/utils/chat.
    BTW there are some time limits on when support is online. You have to follow that.

    Customer By Web Form
    I bought some microSDHC cards from Singapore last year.

    Among them one has died. It does not get detected by my phone or laptop. So I can not even format it.

    The others are working fine. And they work in my phone and my PC.

    The serial number of the card is 122270914XXXX.

    The problem is I dont live in Singapore anymore. I live in Bangladesh. So please advise what I should do to RMA this product and to get a new one.

    Thanks in advanced.

    =============================================
    Please send the defective product to the below listed Address at you own cost for the replacement .
    ===========================
    UTAC - Hsin Chu Taiwan C008
    NO. 2, Li-Hsin Road 3
    Science-Based Industrial Park
    Hsinchu 300
    Taiwan
    Follow the steps. I did not use tracking or padded envelops. There is no point spending 2000tk on DHL for a product that costs 1300tk. So I just used a normal envelop and mailed the card by the cheapest postage I could find from BD Post.

    It took more than a month to get to Taiwan. But it is OK.

    After 3 days I think they sent me a new one. WIth UPS 3 day tracking. It got in BD in 3 days. But our customs took 3 more days to clear it. And I did not have to pay a dime other than the 40tk for postage I paid.

    Hope this helps.

    Also this post is here for people who bought cards from me recently. Should work on your cases. Thanks
    Once more into the fray
    Into the last good fight I’ll ever know

    Live and die on this day
