    I installed a 64gb Evo Samsung card and the Note 7 says no sd card installed. Anyone else have this issue? I did move it from my Note 3 though I can't imagine the formatting is different.

    There may be a difference in formatting. Do you have an option to format it under settings>storage?

    I would remove it and reseat it in its spot. Those can be a tad touchy.

    I just tried that and nothing. It doesn't even give me the option to format.

    Weird. I installed my 256gb (thanks samsung) with no issue. However it would not read in my original surface pro but on well. Smart Switch was better than I thought.

    My mistake. I missed that. Note 3. Hmm....May need to reformat. Or just buy a new one and transfer content. I mean you can get a new micro SD 64 gb for less than $20 on Amazon

    I was hoping that staying within the note family would allow cross pollination. Guess not.

    I did the same exact thing as you and it worked for me. Same identical gear as yours.

    N3
    64gb Evo
    N7

    I would copy everything to a PC just to be safe. Then have the PC reformat, and then reformat again on the phone.

    I must have done something wrong then cause it's a no-go. Will have to try a new card. My worry is that there's not even an option to format. I would think the phone should be able to see a card regardless of the format, then give me the option to format.

    You're right. It should, but there is a big difference between should and do.

    This. My microSD card fit very tight. I had to press it hard into the tray to seat it correctly.

    Not really true. I have several old ones. Years old. They're all fine. I think SD cards are more situational.

    Odd, I've had SD cards for years - all still working fine.

    That's the exception to the norm. They aren't built to last forever. Good for you if they lasted a long time.

    IF they lasted more than 3 years, please tell us the brand name and where you bought it so we can experience that kind of durability

    I don't like buying sd cards on Amazon, to many fakes out there, just my opinion.

    But main thing I was going to say is best buy has the Samsung evo sd cards on sale, today probably last day.

    32 gig. $9.99
    64 gig. $29.99
    128 gig. $59.99

    Know you can find sd cards a little cheaper on Amazon or eBay, but at least you know these are not fake, and you go home with it today. If you find them cheaper on Amazon and it is sold and shipped by Amazon, best buy or Wal-Mart will match the price.

    I bought the 128 last night in case I didn't get the free 256 from Samsung, but today online it says approved preparing for shipment, no email yet. So I'll probably return the best buy one

    'There is no such thing as a dumb question' - Carl Sagan. If Samsung didn't change anything from the Note 5, it in settings. There are tabs that are categorized and storage should be under system, which was all the way to the right.
