nex7 and 64gb sdxc problems ?

I have the Nex7 and bought a Transcend 64 GB SDXC card for it. However, I frequently had the following problems:

a) during a shoot, the camera would suddenly say that it cant' access the images on the card. It then tries to recover the image database, but is unsuccessful. I then have to stop using the card, pull images using a PC, and then I need to reformat the card.

b) Once during a shoot, the camera would start taking unreadable images. I could not look at newly taken images on the camera, and any picture taken from that moment was corrupted. Old images on the card remained unharmed.
Again, the only solution was to reformat the card.

I had no issues with a 16GB SDHC card.

Anyone else having such problems with SDXC? Or is my Transcend card maybe bad/fake? (I got it off ebay...)
