My FP4 has just arrived
Although I don’t use a Google account, I managed to (manually) migrate most of the apps and data from my old Samsung Galaxy A3 without any major issue. The problems started though when I inserted a fresh 128 GB SD card (SanDisk Extreme microSDXC UHS-I A2) and formatted it as portable storage. As I read in the forum, this is the preferred option as it’s supposed to work better than formatting it as internal storage.
Yet, while the SD card seemed to work at first, OsmAnd~, for instance, gave me I/O errors when trying to save offline maps on the SD card. Similarly, accessing Android’s basic folder structure from the computer didn’t work. I tried to format it again now receiving the error that the card is not supported (anymore) and needs reformatting. I tried it once more without success. Android still claims that the SD card is not supported whatsoever. I thus got it out of the phone and tried reformatting it to exFAT both on my Linux machine and on Windows 10 (via diskpart). Again, the SD card seemed to work at first but in fact didn’t when trying to copy files. Interestingly, it works flawlessly when using it on Windows/Linux only.
I also tried another SD card, my old SanDisk Ultra (XC I, Class 10). The problem is exactly the same. So it shouldn’t be the SD card.
Has anyone experienced the same issue? Any tips? I’ll contact the support sometime soon anyway but just wanted to hear your opinion first. Thanks in advance!
