    Nothing to do with music, the process of writing anything to a card can trigger it to corrupt.

    SD Cards are cheap for a reason, and that is they're easily prone to corruption.

    Also, dodgy sellers often sell cards that report a big capacity but are actually much smaller, so as soon as you copy enough data onto it it starts overwriting existing stuff.

    Sometimes it can be caused by a dodgy card-reader, or poor connection with the contacts.
