My SD card scandisk 128gb 150mb/s seem not good, after 1000 shot with this sd card, it start making lag with the camera, can't record images, can't turn off and force to take out battery to reset.

Just wanna to ask you guys what kind of SD you use? how many GB and speed? Brand?

Have you ever try Sony Tough sd card?

In my Leica’s, I use all the cards I ever bought for my Canon, Sony, and now Leica.  I add a new card every year and I now buy and use Sandisk extreme Pro sdcards  which are very reliable.  8, 16, 32 and 64gb.  
you should have no problems, but I always/only format my cards in my camera.  I don’t delete any images in my camera and I don’t put all my images on one card.  Two days shooting and I remove the card and put it away safely until I get home.  I carry about 10 cards.  
I don’t have any reason to use Sony Tough cards.   Too expensive and no advantage.

are you moving cards from one type of camera to another.

did you purchase your Sandisk card from a good shop.  I realise you have been in Vietnam.   There are fake Sandisk cards all over the world and the problems you are having are the problems you would get with a fake card.    Only buy from a reputable camera shop.

"I now buy and use Sandisk extreme Pro sdcards" The black one right? 

The problem is make fake sd card here and i don't know which one is real.

Sony Tough SD is a good choice since i need a very reliable card and it truly real one.

Sony Tough is not extra reliable.  It’s simply a stronger construction and Sony say you will get a better shot!  (I think that’s just marketing rubbish). If you buy a card from an authorised dealer you would be able to return it if it gives you problem.    You can discover the appearance of genuine Sandisk cards on the web, but the best idea is to only buy from a professional camera dealer.   Many Leica forum members use Sandisk.

Do a web search for

Sandisk extreme pro real or fake

https://photographylife.com/fake-memory-cards

or order from http://leicavietnam.com

or from a reputable American dealership when you are in the USA.

Your forum profile indicates that you are located in the USA.

Absolutely right.  Some of my cards are 10 years old but my usual specification  target is 95mb/sec and class10.   The only difference is the speed at which I can offload images to my computer.  I’m almost sure the OP has got a fake card.   He should take it back to the seller if possible.

Thanks lucerne for kind advice.

I'll check another good seller.
