Galaxy View - How do I Insert or Remove a MicroSD™ card from my Samsung Galaxy View?

Your device lets you use a microSD™ or microSDHC™ card to expand memory space. This secure digital card lets you exchange pictures, music, and data with SD™ compatible devices.

• 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.

When inserting a memory card into the device, the memory card’s file directory appears in the My Files → SD card folder.

Insert the microSD™ Card

The internal memory card should be inserted with the label side up (connectors down).

  1. Carefully slide out the card slot cover to gain access to the internal card slots.

  2. Slide the microSD™ card into the slot until it clicks in place.

  3. Close the card slot cover.

Remove the microSD™ Card

To prevent damage to information stored on the microSD™ card, unmount the card before removing it from the device.

  1. From the Home screen, touch Apps > Settings > Storage.

  2. Touch Unmount SD card.

  3. Touch OK to finish unmounting the card.

  4. Carefully slide out the card slot cover to gain access to the internal card slots.

  5. Gently press on the microSD™ card to release it, and then carefully remove it from your device.

  6. Close the card slot cover.

Format a Memory Card

When formatting an SD card, you should back up your music and photo files that are stored on the card because formatting the SD card deletes all the stored data.

  1. From the Home screen, touch Apps > Settings > Storage.

  2. Touch Format SD card.

  3. Touch FORMAT SD CARD to start formatting SD card.
