I have a Samsung Galaxy JE Prime Smartphone. It had a 16 GB SD card, too small for me so inserted a 32 GB SD card & that works fine.
But I have a Samsung Galaxy TAB E Tablet. I found that it had no SD card, so I inserted a 128 GB SD card. The Tablet keeps telling me "No card inserted".
A friend told me that I need to have the Tablet card formatted, so I should go back to the store & ask them to do that. But I rather doubt that. Is it true or is there another solution here?
