Galaxy A8/A8+: How do I install the memory card?

Last Update date : 2020-11-20

Your device accepts memory cards with maximum capacities of 256GB. Depending on the memory card manufacturer and type, some memory cards may not be compatible with your device depending on the memory card manufacturer and type.

• 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.

• Use caution to insert the memory card right-side up.

• The device supports the FAT and the ex FAT file systems for memory cards. When inserting a card formatted in a different file system,  the device will ask to reformat the card or will not recognize the memory card. To use memory card, you must format it.

• 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.
