Formatting an SD card into a Samsung Galaxy A5 without erasing photos and videos on the device?

Hi there. I have a Samsung Galaxy A5. I need to install an updated app but the system is advising there is not enough storage space. I bought a 32GB SD this morning with the idea of moving pictures and videos from the phone to the SD card. However, the card needs to be formatted and I'm worried that all the videos and pictures on the device will be deleted? The SD card is of course empty so is this more a message for SD cards that may have existing data rather than any risk to the device itself?. I have tried: I have not formatted as yet because of the concern over losing photos and videos stored on the phone. I know how to format but am concerned as to the consequences.
