    This notification keeps popping up a couple times a day. I've formatted, mounted, unmounted the card and it's still haunting me.

    Is there any way to stop this?

    I have only seen that if I turn the phone completely off, then back on, not during normal use.

    I have been lucky so far. I haven't see it yet. I'm using the Samsung 64GB PRO Class 10 Micro SDXC Card.

    Hey guys, just wanted to post a solution to the problem. All of you with this phone, that use an external SD card, are getting an annoying notification that says, "SD card For transferring photos and media," and it doesnt seem to go away. If this message appears over and over again in your status bar, the only known way to get rid of it was to previously just keep "clearing" it out or remove the SD card completely.

    If you are receiving a notification "SD card For transferring photos and media" on your Samsung Galaxy S7 and you cannot get the notification to go away, please try to do the following:

    1. BACKUP your sd card - plug your phone into your computer and copy off the contents of the SD card
    2. On the phone, navigate to: Settings >> Memory >> SD Card
    3. In the submenu, choose FORMAT

    All of the data on the memory card will be formatted to the correct file system and the memor card will be reconnected to the phone for proper use. The message, "SD card For transferring photos and media" should no longer appear.

    Hopefully this helped you out! Thanks!

    It's gone from bad to worse for me!

    Not only does mine give SD card notification, it also says that the phone had to restart so it lags hard and I cant use fingerprint security.

    I don't actually see any real evidence of a restart other than the SD card message and the fact that I have to use my standard unlock again. And it happens almost as frequently as each time I wake it up to use!

    I have tried the format SD card on TWO different cards now and no go!

    Anyone? Factory restart or take it back to Verizon? Arrgg!

    I can not get my SD card to format. I go into settings, storage, tap SD card, and then tap Format. Nothing happens. I can unmount and mount with no issues, but can not format.

    Any shot it is due to the crappy tray. It might just be moving and it keeps popping in and out making it appear as if a new card is being inserted.

    I'm not sure what it is anymore. I'm using Samsung pro plus 128gb sd card. I exchanged it thinking it was card but still doing the same thing. I decided to exchange the phone at T-Mobile thinking I had a defective phone but it's still doing the same thing. I formatted the card through pc and in phone and that didn't work. I'm not sure what else to do. Hope someone finds a solution.

    I'm having the same issue with a 32GB samsung evo pro plus micro sd card. the message comes randomly, sometimes every 10 minutes, sometimes every 2 hours. I don't think it's ejecting the card though because if you take out the sim card tray while the phone is on, it'll say it unmounted unexpectedly. I don't get that except for the notification haunting me, teasing me.

    I actually had no issue with my first S7 edge and used this same micro sd card. but I returned the S7 edge to get the BOGO deal, and one of the two S7 edge has an issue. Interesting, my other S7 edge from the deal has no issue so I don't know why. The card slots look the same. I'm thinking if I should factory reset? Would be a pain though. And since someone has already returned and exchanged at t-mobile, I don't know if I want to do that because that's just a hassle and who knows, maybe the replacement one will have a worse issue than this common bug across a lot of S7 users.

    Only ever happened for me on a reboot as it's supposed to. Did you format your SD card the first time you added it to the phone.

    yep formatted everytime I put it in a new phone. so I'm out of ideas now. The people that don't have this issue don't understand how annoying this is, and I think everyone that has this issues has ran out of ideas. Even if you think the problem is gone, watch, it'll come back 24 hours later!

    The only time I have the message pop up is when I reboot the phone. However, unable to format, yet I can add and delete files, mount and unmount. Perhaps the issue is occurring because people are formatting the card when installed.

    I didn't format mine at first install and had this issue. Then I decided to format through pc and that didn't fix the problem then formatted through phone and that didn't work either. Today from about 11:15 to 4:45pm the notification was gone but I noticed that one of my apps that I had in my sd card was missing from my home screen and decided to go through my apps and move it back. Well as soon as I did that I started to get the notification again.

    128gb EVO+ And mine works flawlessly. Believe it or not, formatting doesn't fix everything. Using a Windows PC, use check disk, let it automatically fix any errors, and reformat. You should be good to go.

    I tried puttin scotch tape across the sd card and sim card and the mount unmounting issue went away for about a day and a half but came back. I had a 128gb pny card that worked great in my note3 but evidently not in the s7e. I swapped in a 64gb kingston card and no more issues. I think the s7 is very picky about what sd cards it likes. I ordered a samsung 128gb evo card, i hopes it likes that one.

    Ok, I fixed it by doing a factory reset. Not only did I have this sd card notification issue, but I could not get the fingerprint to read my 3rd or 4th fingerprints. I deleted them all, and # 1 and 2 will always work. But 3 and 4 saved, but did not work when trying to unlock phone. Tried it with multiple fingers, so it seems like a software bug.

    Factory reset last night, and all fingerprints working now from #1 - #4, and no more sd card notification.

    I also think it's because I used Samsung switch to restore my phone. I always do fresh installs, but wanted to try it out since I just returned my JOD phone and was a good use case.

    For those that have this sd card notification issue, did you restore from backup/samsung switch, or did you start from scratch?

    Yes, I did a factory reset and the problem has gone away. It started by me reading an article that told me to go to storage and tap on......that was a mistake!!!! It not only popped up all the time but it would not allow me to download music to it. So I tried a different Sd card, same thing happened. So, bit the bullet, did the factory reset( wiped SD card so lost all previous music, movies, etc) and all is well so far.... ( 3 days).
    So just my opinion it is a software issue, not hardware.
