Samsung Galaxy S3: How To Install & Format A Micro SD Card (SIII, I9300)




What do you think about this video?

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!!

Sharon Merryman: Thank you so much!!! 

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

Gary Goelzer: I am replacing a 2GB microSD card in my S3 with a 16GB microSD card. Is there any trick to copying the files from one to the other? I have copied them from the 2GB card to my PC but I can't open them on my PC? Says format not supported.

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!!

When I went to format the card there wasn't a 'MOUNT CARD' icon like yours but I formatted it as you said anyways though it seems the S3 had automatically formatted the card after the phone was turned back on .
