    I have tried formatting from phone...no laptop, but it won't format. I have no clue what I'm doing wrong. I searched the forums and they are all for different phones. Does the disk need to be in phone to format? I'm just lost. PLEASE HELP!!!!!

    Hello. Are you trying to format a new SD card? Usually the card (is it unused) is inserted in the phone, you go to Settings - Storage, the card is recognised and you will have a format option, or the space available there is shown so it's already the correct file system (I think that's mostly correct ).
    Try an app like SD Insght if you suspect a fake card.

    Welcome. So it won't recognise the extra storage?

    It may be you have an old device / new high speed card, see these card types
