    Default Changing MicroSD card

    Hello,
    bought a Samsung class 10 64gb for my GoPro, but has been having problems with it. evidently, the write/read speed is not up to par with GoPro black, so instead i'm switching to lexar.
    now for my dilemma: i'm thinking about using the samsung SD card for my S4 instead. my question is, how do i go about in transferring everything that is on the SD card that in my S4 now (i believe it's 16gb) to the the bigger card? i realize i have to reformat the 64 gb card. how do i go about in doing that?
    thanks in advance.

    If your PC has a card reader, I would unmount the card in Settings>Storage, and insert it into the PC and copy/paste. Insert the new card and copy/paste again. Put the new card in the phone.

    As for formatting, I would format it in the phone first then move the files.

    Can you use any Micro SD card with a S4 (Telus Mobility)? By that I mean Micro SD "xc" or "hc". Do they only refer to transfer speeds? Like CF cards for cameras?

    Last I knew, the Galaxy series didn't like the SDXC cards. So go with a 32 SDHC and you should be good to go.
