How do I install the memory card in my Galaxy A5?

Last Update date : 2017.09.29

The Samsung Galaxy A5 accepts memory cards with maximum capacities of 64 GB, depending on the memory card manufacturer and type.


Note: Some memory cards may not be fully compatible with the device. Using an incompatible card may damage the device or the memory card, or corrupt the data stored in it.




● The device supports the FAT and the exFAT file systems for memory cards. When inserting a

card formatted in a different file system, the device asks to reformat the memory card.

● Frequent writing and erasing of data shortens the lifespan of memory cards.

● When inserting a memory card into the device, the memory card’s file directory appears in

the My Files SD card folder.
