 Basic functions to respect with SD cards

 

 Failure to follow these instructions could damage your card

 

 Memory card (microSD card)

 

 Install a memory card

 The memory card capacity of your device may vary from other models, and some memory cards may not be compatible with your device depending on the manufacturer and type of memory card.  To know the maximum capacity of your memory card, please consult your manual.



 Some memory cards may not be perfectly compatible with the device.  Using an incompatible memory card can damage the device or the memory card itself and corrupt the data stored in it.



 Be sure to insert the memory card on the right side.



 Only FAT and exFAT file structures are compatible with the device's memory cards.  When you insert a formatted memory card with another file structure, the device will prompt you to reformat it, otherwise it will not recognize the card.  You must format the memory card before using it. If your device can not format or recognize the memory card, contact the manufacturer of the memory card or a Samsung Service Center.



 Too much frequency of erase and write operations reduces the life of memory cards.



 When you insert a memory card into the camera, the file directory of the memory card appears in the My Files → SD Card folder.

Insert the ejector pin in the space provided on the tray to unlock it.  (may differ from the picture above, please consult your manual, (some devices do not have eject pins)

 

 Check that the ejector pin is perpendicular to the hole.  Otherwise, the device may be damaged.

Carefully remove the tray from its slot.

 

 Insert the memory card into the tray with the chip facing down.

Gently push the card into the tray to lock it.

 

 If the card is not put in place correctly, it could escape from the board or fall to the ground.

 

 Insert the tray in the space provided.

 

 If you insert the tray into your device while the tray is wet, it may damage your device.  Always make sure the tray is dry.



 Please insert the tray fully into the slot provided to prevent liquids from entering the unit.



 Remove a memory card

 Before you remove the memory card, you must disable it before you can remove it safely.

 Launch the Settings application and tap Maintenance or Device Care → Storage → → Storage Settings → SD Card → DISABLE.

Then click on the 3 small dots at the top right and click on Storage Analysis

To disassemble the Micro SD Card, click on the triangle

Insert the ejector pin in the space provided on the tray to unlock it.  (Some devices do not have an eject pin)

 

 Carefully remove the tray from its slot.

 

 Remove the memory card.

 

 Insert the tray in the space provided.

 

 Never remove the memory card while the device is recording or reading information.  This could result in loss or corruption of data, or damage to the memory card or the device.  Samsung can not be held responsible for any loss of data resulting from misuse or damage to a memory card.

 

 Format a memory card

 A memory card that has been formatted on a computer may not be compatible with your device.  Format the memory card in the device.

 Launch the Settings application and touch Device Maintenance → Storage → → Storage Settings → SD Card → Format.

 

 Before formatting the memory card, be sure to make backup copies of all important data stored there (Smart Switch is perfect for that) The manufacturer's warranty does not cover the loss of data resulting from manipulations  of the user.

 

 Those informations comes mostly from Samsung websites

Hi @Cassidy, @Cprice,


I moved some things around in order to make the community organized - heres what changed:

-I removed the 2 extra posts in the different communities
-I made both french and english posts featured on the main page so it can still be seen by everyone coming into Samsung Members. I think this would help organization and still make this article shown. You can see your articles in the homepage now.

Hope this works for you!

 

J'ai déplacé certaines choses afin d'organiser la communauté - voici ce qui a changé:

-J'ai supprimé les 2 postes supplémentaires dans les différentes communautés
-J'ai fait des articles en français et en anglais sur la page principale afin que tout le monde puisse voir les membres Samsung. Je pense que cela aiderait l'organisation et que cet article serait toujours affiché. Vous pouvez voir vos articles sur la page d'accueil maintenant.

J'espère que cela fonctionne pour vous!

 

Cheers,

Jeremy :]

Hi @CHMultimedia, 

 

Because its such a new project for everyone here, I think we can make some improvements to the posts. If we could have them consolidated in a single post that would  be best! I think though, for right now, its okay to have them as two separate posts - but for the next one you guys work on maybe we can have them as one single post:) Let me know your thoughts?

 

Parce que c'est un nouveau projet pour tout le monde ici, je pense que nous pouvons apporter des améliorations aux messages. Si nous pouvions les regrouper en un seul article, ce serait mieux! Je pense cependant que pour le moment, c'est correct de les avoir en deux postes distincts - mais pour le prochain sur lequel vous travaillez, nous pouvons peut-être les avoir en un seul poste :) Veuillez me faire part de vos réflexions?

 

Cheers,

Jeremy:]

Thanks for this @Cassidy, but why post it in 3 different sections, just posting it in the "Other" section would of been fine.

Cprice i put this in 3 sections until Jeremy_from_Samsung put a special section for authorized article.

I asked Jeremy to put this in the most views sections for new users S10, Note10 and others

Here's what I see on my phone in the Samsung Member's app, your post 3 times in a row, I understand that you want to help new users and that's much appreciated, but posting it 3 times is a little much.

BTW, you did a great job putting this together for the community 👍🏾

I will remember to only put it once for next articles , Sorry guys

Hi @Cassidy and @Cprice!

yea, hrm, seems like a little much. Should be good for next time if you post in just one spot! Maybe for now we can leave all three, but if theres any issues then we may have to remove two from both English and French for organization.

 

oui, ça ressemble un peu beaucoup. Cela devrait être bon pour la prochaine fois si vous postez au même endroit! Peut-être que pour l'instant, nous pouvons tout laisser, mais s'il y a de la confusion ou des problèmes, nous pouvons simplement en laisser un.

 

Cheers,

Both languages should be fused as one post. This takes two slots out of the three on the homepage of the app and I really think the FAQ should be there too while leaving one slot for moderator posts.

For now I think it's okay too, but I really think one of the slots should be used for the FAQ to prevent frequent questions like "Mobile data" or "when update" from being repeatedly asked.

Otherwise I'm absolutely certain that next time a single post could encompass both languages and that should not be difficult, unless we hit the character limit I guess. Even then it could be possible to simply have a link...

Idea: Why not, for the time being, have a single post with links to all posts deemed pertinent and particularly useful to members? It could be easy to have such post "featured" at the home of the app, leaving two free slots (one of which should really be used by the FAQ). Let me know what you think of this idea.
