Sony A9 firmware 5.0 issue?

I had this happen 3 times to me with my A7riii -- typically when using the rating function, the memory card becomes totally unresponsive. The card can't be read by the camera or by the computer.

On one of the occasions, I sent the card back to Sony and they recovered the data.

There were reports it was primarily Sandisk cards, but it was happening with me with Sony cards, 3 different cards. Even sent my camera in to be looked at, make sure it wasn't my camera.

Then they acknowledged some sort of memory card issues and fixed firmware in late 2018...

Now, updated the firmware on my A9... and it ruined another memory card.

Maybe coincidence... but I'd be careful for now. If anyone has had similar issues, please speak up.
