    So the issue I'm having is that I bought a large micro SD of 256GB and I have verified that it is actually 256, and it is functional. I am wanting to use my Note 4 as my new music player. I have 103GB of music. When I plug the phone into the computer directly I am able to transfer multiple GB of music with no problem and they instantly show up on the phone. Everything seems to be perfect. My music plays with no issue and everything is great! My issue arises when I have had the need to turn the phone on and off. When the phone is turned on again it acts as if the music files aren't on the micro card anymore and they don't show up in any music app. I plug the phone into the computer and look at the micro card and nothing has been changed. The music is still there untouched. It appears like after a reboot the phone just will not look at the files that are on the card. If I didn't reboot, everything would be fine and my 103GB of music shows, and plays with no problem. I've heard that the Note 4 won't allow over 128, but as long as I don't reboot the phone it works perfectly fine. How do I solve this without literally never turning off my phone?

    Welcome to Android Central! That's a tricky issue. If a device specifies compatibility with SD cards up to a certain capacity, then they can't guarantee that bigger cards will work consistently. On top of that, Samsung devices tend to be a bit glitchy when it comes to SD cards. I'd probably stick with a 128 GB card. Sorry, but I'm not aware of any fix for this kind of issue.
