You probably need a microSDHC to SD adapter.  These are usually supplied with microSD class chips in the original package so that the microSDHC chip can be used in SDHC applications.  The chip can then be read in any SD device that is HC compliant.

If you didn't receive one with the chip, the adapters are readily available on ebay and are not expensive.

Alternatively, you can buy an inexpensive SDHC USB reader and read it on a PC.

Either one should work.

samsung note 3 uses MicroSDHC, thus the samsung will read it.

See this guide to Insert or Remove the MicroSD Card in Samsung Galaxy Note 3:

Similar applies to galaxy 4.

The dell Inspiron 620 has a  8 in 1 card reader that does not have a MicroSDHC slot, thus will require a microSDHC to SD adapter to read the MicroSDHC card.
Or you can connect via USB with a MicroSDHC to USB dongle or a multi card reader to USB that includes MicroSDHC support.
