I took pictures on my Samsung Rogue phone and saved them to the micro SD. I'm wanting to print them directly without having to email them one by one. The only way I'm told I can was to purchase an adapter that fits into my camera. When I put this tiny micro SD into the adapter that fits into my camera, it says there's nothing on the external memory. What am i doing wrong? I formatted the micro while in my phone.

My Gopro Hero 3 Silver with new Sandisk Ultra 64GB Micro SD Class 10 is not recognized by media for playback, I can only see files on computer as an external drive. If I change the Micro SD card to the 2GB the media such as TV & playstation recognise the 2GD, but not the 64GB. The only thing I can spot the difference is on the format, the 2GB is MS-DOS (FAT16) the 64GB is ExFAT. What is wrong?

I bought an 4gig SD (HC)? card for my Camera. On start up, the Camera reads "FORMAT SET:OK" but when I select OK it Says CARD ERROR!. I've traded the "defective" one in for a SanDisk Adapter (4gig MICRO SD HC) only to discover the same problem? Why won't my camera Accept / Format these SD Cards? ---Josh
