What do you think about this video?

Wesley Maartens: awesome vid man thanks just a quick question will the galaxy 3 i9305 take the 128gb micro sd card? Cheers

Sam Connolly: I did all of that but it didn't work and I still don't have enough space to open my camera or gallery or get new apps :(

Judy Hirsh: where it says "mount sd card" its greyed out it will not let me click on it wtf?

Ian Howells: Menus shown didn't match those on my S3 but found what I needed eventually. Also, the unmount and format options were greyed out when the phone was connected to my laptop via cable. This guide needs a bit of updating. Got my 64gb card in, formatted and working. Thanks!!

Tandibee123: Very useful. Thanks

Andrew Tarrant: Very plain & clear instruction, but what if i want to install a bigger card than one already in my fone? sounds easy but I've heard of people having probs with this!! :(

Bill Pell: very nice, thanks Ian.

Nancy Sager: Thanks, worked like a charm!

Wednesday Addams: Thanks so much. Helped me a ton.

13shelbygt500: It's weird because I have used the same sd card for a year and a half on my s3 and always worked it has videos, photos, etc. and all of a sudden it won't read it . I followed these steps and still nothing. Please help 

Jack King: on the samsung tab 3 i put the sd card in and mounted it and then it said 'SD card is blank or has unsupported file system.' and that is all i can do when i click the nofication it just says format so i do but the same thing repeats again. i cant use the sd card at all and i do not a usb adapter. HELP PLEASE!!

Sharon Merryman: Thank you so much!!! 

James Jungeberg: What is the best way to transfer files from a smaller SD card full of pictures that you have just replaced by installing a new larger capacity SD card in the S4?

shalabi. nuha: Hi I am replacing a 2GB micro SD in my s3 but it didn't work, what's the matter? ?
