CR-6 SE Erasing My SD Cards? Help?

I've got a stock CR-6 SE that for unknown reasons will either 100% corrupt my SD cards, or will erase them.  I don't know why it happens.  SD cards are formatted correctly (FAT32) and didn't have any problems accepting .gcode files. I'm wondering if anyone can help with this?  

 

Erased:

  • Insert SD card (with .gcode files) into printer.
  • Select Print, start it.
  • Prints successfully.
  • Select Print, SD card is now empty.
  • Turn printer off and on again.
  • SD card is still empty.
  • Remove SD card and insert it into computer.
  • SD card is empty.

Corrupted:

  • Insert SD card (with .gcode files) into printer.
  • Printer shows no content on SD card.
  • Remove SD card and insert it into computer.
  • Computer says SD card needs to be formatted.
  • Attempt to format SD card: format failed.
  • Attempt to run Chkdsk on SD card: unable to Chkdsk.
  • SD card is totally dead and can't seem to be used anymore.

@samuraiken I have a similar situation.

  • Ender-3 v2 did not read my SD card.
  • Remove SD card, insert it into the computer.
  • Show the STL file well.
  • Insert into the printer, still nothing.
  • Remove SD card and format it.
  • The name of the SD card became messy code.
  • Put an STL file and insert it into the printer again.
  • Works correctly although the name of the SD card is messy code

I am going to change to a new SD card.

@kevin  Very strange!  I've gone through 6 different SD cards now, and so far...nothing.  If I put an SD card in there and IF it reads the files, the SD card will be corrupt after the print finishes, guaranteed.

 

I've tried flashing the firmware to the updated version and that does nothing to resolve the issue.

@samuraiken Wow! Such huge cost printing! LOL. Just joking. Seriously, it is probably a mainboard problem. Something wrong with your board and it ruined your SDcard.

My CR-10 S5 has just started doing the same thing, cant print now!!!

The first time it happened a file appeared on the card that was about 600mb with random ascii characters in the name, it would not let me delete or rename the file, kind of suspicious!
