    I got a 64Gb Samsung micro SD card. But my phone just will not properly connect to it.

    -With default setting on the card(exFAT), I press mount and it only say that the SD card is read to be removed, no other options

    - If I format the SD card on window 8.1 to NTFS and reinsert the card, it will acknowledge the card, say it is blank give me an option to format it(all on notification bar not storage options) then check for errors and say it is ready to be removed without fixing the problems. Leading to a frustrating loop.

    Does anyone know what is going on and how to fix it?

    Welcome to Android Central! NTFS is generally incompatible with Android (unless you root the device and use some special software), and exFAT isn't always compatible either. FAT32 is the best filesystem to use for SD cards in Android. See this link: 3 Ways to Format an SD Card - wikiHow

    Thanks for the help. It's fixed now
    The problem was that windows and seemingly android cannot format a storage space greater than 32Gb straight to FAT32. So I had to download and run a 3rd arty FAT32 formater to fix it.
