Welcome to Android Central! When you connect the phone to your PC via USB, swipe down the notification panel and tap the USB notification. Is MTP/File Transfer selected?

What kind of data are you trying to transfer from the older card? Was that older card formatted as Internal Storage or Portable Storage?
