What we're going to do is move the Angry Birds application from our SD card which is indicated by the green check to the phone's memory. As you can see now, we are at 3.1 GB.
- 15You'll see now on the SD card that is registers as 0.00 and our SD card memory has actually changed from 3.1 to 3.0.If we tap on the Angry Birds icon again, you can now see that we have the option to move it to the SD card. To make sure the application works, we're going to want to press the home button one time at the bottom of the phone.

My Galaxy S5 is not supporting my SD card, please help me
Galaxy S5 supports microSD cards up to 128 GB. If you are using a 256 GB one, then it may not work on the phone. To resolve your problem, do the following:
- remove the microSD card from your phone and insert another one that works. If they both are not working or you do not have a second microSD card, then gently attempt to push your microSD card farther into the slot. Do not break anything when you do that;
- take the microSD out, insert it into another phone, and see if it works;
- insert the microSD into a card reader of a computer and format it using a FAT32 and exFAT file systems with any sector size:
- to insert the microSD card into the card reader, you may need to resort to the use of a microSD-to-SD adapter, remembering to place its switch to the unlocked position to let you write onto the card.
- format the card. For example, in Windows 10, open File Explorer by pressing the Windows key and "E" and right-click the disk drive with the microSD card. Select "Format..." Click the "File system" drop-down menu to select "FAT32" or "exFAT" (you will want to use the other one if your card will not work). You can choose the lowest value in "Allocation unit size" for better results. Uncheck "Quick Format" just in case and click "Start". When the format has been finished, remove the microSD safely from the computer by using the system tray area (click the USB icon and select "Eject"), reinsert the microSD into your phone, and see if it works.
- If nothing helps, then you may wish to bring your phone to a [www.samsung.com/my/support/servicelocation/ Samsung service center] with the microSD card inside.
