    I have a low budget Packard Bell Android 8 Oreo tablet. This tablet has an Android Go Edition OS.

    Whenever I put in an SD card with content like videos or anything at all, I get a message saying "Unsupported Samsung SD card". "This device doesn't support this Samsung SD card. Tap to set up in a supported format."

    I don't see a way to include images here, but bottom line is I have to format the card.

    This makes absolutely no sense. Isn't one of the main reasons for having an SD card slot to be able to watch videos already on a card?

    If the card was formatted in a Windows PC as an NTFS card, it has to be reformatted as exFAT. Windows can handle both, Android can't handle NTFS. (If it was formatted in a Mac or iPhone as HTFS, same problem.)

    In disk management both my SD cards, which are both Samsung 64gb, say exFat under File System.

    I'm not sure if a budget device like that can read exFAT. You may have to reformat it to FAT32.

    How would I do that and also retain the content?

    You would need to back up the content on a PC and restore after formatting the card

    When you get the message "Tap to set up in a supported format." Have you tried this?

    You've tried more than one card, correct? Did you get both of those cards from the same seller? Can you try another non-Samsung card, preferably purchased from a physical store (i.e., not from a random seller on eBay)? Just wondering if the cards you have might be counterfeit or corrupt.

    The partition is larger than 32GB, so it has to be formatted as exFAT, not as FAT32.
