Samsung Galaxy S7 SD card notification does not go away – Solution

The Samsung Galaxy S7 has again the option to use a micro SD memory card. With this it is possible to outsource images, videos and other media files to the memory card and so relieve the internal memory.

Now it can happen after inserting the memory card that the following message continually appears in the status bar of your smartphone:

  • "SD card to transfer photos and videos".

If this message appears in the status bar of your Samsung Galaxy S7 and does not disappear even after “Wiping out” out then your Samsung Galaxy S7 device assumes that the memory card is always and always inserted and connected.

If this is the case, then please try the following workaround:

Open on the Samsung Galaxy S7 the menu and then System settings. Navigate from here to:

Memory --> SD Card

Select in this submenu now "Format”.

Attention! All data on the memory card will be deleted. Perform please, if data is already saved, a backup. Your memory card will be formatted by the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Android marshmallow.

This results in that the memory card is recorded with the correct file system. Then, the memory card is re-connected and can be used.

If you now see in the status bar of the Samsung Galaxy S7 the notification "SD card to transfer photos and videos" wipe it out. It then should not reappear. We hope this has helped you on your Samsung Galaxy S7.
