My phone shows "sd card not inserted" or "can't write to sd card". I've removed and reinserted the sd card, and I've restarted the phone. These actions solved the problem for a short time and then "sd card not inserted" or "can't write to sd card".

Are you sure it's not your SD card that's at fault? I've had the issue before on a different phone brand and i later found out it was my SD card that was faulty

Ok well i have a solution that might help. Transfer all the data on ur sd card to a computer if u have one. Then go to settings> device care> storage> select the sd card and format it. If u format it without having backups of ur data u will lose it.

Hi 

 

If the issue still persist, you may have to take the device to the service center for a software reload:

Might be a software bug then that should most likely be fixed after a short while. Im sure Samsung is aware of the problem and is working on fixing it. I don't have any other guesses to what it can be

hi, if the device can't read your SD card you better replace it. if the software or hardware was faulty, it would not respond to the SD card error but if it says its not inserted it means nothing is being read as an SD card there, replace it
