    Have a GS5 from my employer and for personal use have a Note 4. Both with 64GB SD cards that are just about full with pictures and video. Between YouTube uploads and now with Google Photos, feel confident wiping both SD cards completely...save let's say one or two documents and a ringtones folder I want to delete everything from both and start fresh. Used to be sooo easy! I have a MacBook Pro (could be the problem too) and when I connect either device I can't get them to show up.

    I pulled each SD, threw them into a card reader and still more issues. For the Samsung SD from my Note, I was able to see 5 of my let's say 20 folders. Thankfully one of the 5 had 40+GB of pictures, so I dragged it to my trash, watched it dissappear and mounted the SD card back into the Note 4....ALL the pictures are still on it 😐

    Then as for my GS5 it uses a SanDisk SD and when I put that in a card reader my MacBook says it's inaccessible and only offered to wipe the card, which didn't work (froze up twice and I think that's the first and second time I've ever had my MB freeze on me).

    HOW IN THE HELL are y'all managing files these days? If I wanted to keep my Nova/Android layout, settings and apps all intact, but just get an on-computer screen view of my files and folders within each internal and external SD card for cleaning and organizational purposes, I'd be one happy camper.

    Ideas? I see Side Sync has replaced Samsung Kies but haven't tried it. I'd prefer not to have to use Kies or SS but I guess I would at this point.

    Welcome to Android Central! I'd be concerned that the cards have become corrupted somehow. Or perhaps that SD card reader for your MacBook doesn't work that well. Are you able to insert the card into a Windows PC with built-in card reader? See if that can read it correctly. Also, run chkdsk to look for bad sectors: http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...d-sd-card.html

    Hey thanks so much! I've been procrastinating and am just now sitting down to address this. Will keep you posted and I'll try to get back here and post my results to help anyone who may be running into the same issue.

    Again my man thank you!
