    I want to use my external card to store music. Transferring via cable and "Android file transfer" is very slow and very buggy. Lots of fails and data loss.

    So I bought a card reader so i can transfer the music via the reader.

    I get this error "The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer"

    I can reformat the disk but then the phone won't read it. So the mac can mount the disc but cannot read the format.

    How can i setup the card so android marshmellow and Os x can both read and write.

    I am using Samsung edge S7 and OS X Capitan (all latest versions)

    Welcome to Android Central! I don't have a direct answer for that, but have you tried wireless file transfer solutions like AirDroid or Wi-fi File Explorer?

    I'm beginning to think the card may have a problem. Check your card with this https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...c.sdi&hl=en_GB
    Have you tried another card?

    I believe Samsung has removed the adoptive storage option from their phones.

    It is still possible using ADB

    Yes I had heard there was a workaround but was basically it disabled out of the box.

    If you go to the App Manager, select AirDroid, and then tap Permissions, is there a permission for SD card? If so, make sure it's turned on.
