Micro SDXC frustrations.

I have the Note 8 & received the free microSDXC evo plus 128gb SD card. Problem is, I can't seem to save what I want to it. I first, dropped it in my note8 & attempted to copy from my windows 10 laptop & I kept getting device not found after maybe copying 1 dir. so I then tried to put the new Sd in the microSD adapter. Still no luck. Then I tried copying from my S4 to my Note8. No luck. I tried formatting it on the Note8, which formats it but copying. No luck.

Samsung memory support suggested I do a clean with DiskPart which works but attempts to format returns device not found.

I've came across a posting that indicated I needed to dwld & install "Note8 USB drivers" but can't seem to locate them anywhere.

This has been very frustrating for a free gift for buying the Note8 that I would expect to just insert and transfer to it at will until 119gb is full.  Very frustrating.

Any help or direction you can provide would be greatly appreciated....

the free microSDXC evo plus 128gb SD card has hardware problem.

Contact Samsung for an exchange for a working one.


microSD card is pretty cheap this days and it is common to see faulty card on first use.

Turns out the solution was to simply copy all from my OLD SD to PC HD then copy all from HD to NEW 128gb SD.

I did try just about everything
I even updated the Samsung Android ADB interface & Samsung  Mobil USB composite device drivers.

The SD card wasn't defective.

For whatever reason, the solution was to simply copy All from old SD to HD then copy all from HD to new SD..

Any attempt to copy from SD to SD failed.

So solution was to copy from old SD to HD then copy from HD to new SD
