I have a 16GB S3 and I can't get an SD Card to mount. I have a SanDisk 32GB MicroSD (Class 4). I've verified that it's fully inserted and I even restarted the phone with it inserted.
When I go to the storage screen, it just says "Insert SD Card". Has anybody else experienced this? Is there a resolution other than returning the phone?
hey guys, just so you know, you have to format the card as exFAT before you put it in. I put the 16gb i bought off amazon into it and it kept telling me the new card was bad. I plugged it into the memory reader on my laptop, and it was fat32, formatted it to exFAT and put it back in and it's been working great
hope that helps
The tech at the store tried reformatting the card, too. It was also important to turn off the phone, remove the battery, THEN put in the card, replace the battery, and turn on. If you don't do it in that order it may not recognize it.
According to the user manual, it should be able to format the SD card on it's own: http://files.youmobile.org/User-Manual-I9300.pdf
At this point, I'm just going to bring it back to the store.
I am having the same problem. My pictures from my SD card just suddenly disappeared from my phone. When I looked at the storage it just said Insert SD Card. I have turned off the phone, took out the battery, took out the SD card and then replaced them in reverse order. It still says that I need to insert an SD card. I guess I'm headed to the Sprint store tomorrow
