• 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.

 

• You can store Photos, Videos, Music onto the Memory card by moving these thorugh the Files app on your device. (Most Apps are unable to be saved to a memory card)
