    Will be copy from my old card and pasting to the new card.

    Is it necessary to reformat the new card in the phone if it's already formatted in exFAT mode?

    Samsung advice is to format the sd card with your phone.

    My 128GB SanDisk came pre-formatted. I didn't format it before I put it in the phone. You should be good to go.

    I'm confused!

    I connected my phone in order to copy the data on my old card to my desktop so I could paste it on the new card. Only the first three folders pasted, even though I selected and copied all of the contents of the old card, as shown in this screen grab.

    Why would that happen?Do I have to format a Samsung 64GB card that's already formatted with exFAT?-confusing-copy.jpg

    Well now I'm confused, too: "Old Phone Card" only shows three folders.

    Oh, I see: Old Phone Card is your desktop folder? The copy operation should bring up a status window while you're copying.

    Decided to unmount the old card and put it into the adapter and into my Transcend card reader. It would not read. Noted the card reader had a micro sd slot so I took it out of the adapter and put it into that slot. That worked. Old contents copied and then pasted to the new card.

    Now, do I have to do anything to mount it in the phone or can I just slip it in the micro sd slot to use it? I've turned my phone off while doing this so I can't check the settings.

    Thanks all for helping me so much with my questions!

    It should get picked up when you put it in the phone and boot it, but check Settings -> General -> Storage and scroll down to the bottom to verify it got mounted. Good luck!

    Deed done - just put the new card with the pasted data into the phone, checked the settings and it is recognized.

    Phew! That was really scary!

    Thanks for being here.
