How to Use a 64GB MicroSD on Android

Many Android users wonder if a 64GB microSD card can be used on their device. In this article, we will answer that question by looking at a Samsung Galaxy 4.0 media player running Android version 2.3.5.

First, we need to insert the 64GB class 6 microSD card into the device. However, upon doing so, we received an error message stating that the card was damaged. To fix this, we shut down the device, turned it back on without removing the microSD card, and formatted the card once it ran through its checks.

To format the card, we went to settings, then SD card and device storage. From there, we hit format and confirmed that the action would erase the SD card and all data. After formatting, the total memory available was shown as 59.46GB, with no more damaged card icon.

It’s important to note that the available memory will always be slightly less than the total memory due to formatting. This is similar to how a 500GB hard drive will have slightly less usable space than 500GB.

With the 64GB microSD card successfully installed, we were able to add nearly 60GB of data to our device. This proves that a 64GB microSD card can indeed be used on an Android device, specifically on a Samsung Galaxy 4.0 media player running Android version 2.3.5.

Overall, if you’re looking to increase your device’s storage capacity, a 64GB microSD card is a great option to consider. Just remember to format it properly before use.
