Samsung S20 Elite - SD Card not working

I just bought a SAMSUNG S20 Elite and did the smart switch last night.  I transfered my 64gb Micro SD Card from my S10 (where it worked totally fine) to the S20 and almost immediately the S20 is giving me messages thar it "Cant write to SD Card"....the exact message is "Your SD card isnt working and has been set to read open to prevent data loss".

 

I dont understand this, as the SD was working perfectly, just hours before the switch to the new phone.


i do see other references to this problem on the internet.

Re: Samsung S20 Elite - SD Card not working

It is likely caused by the card being encrypted on the previous device. Please insert the card into your S10 and then dencrypt it.

Re: Samsung S20 Elite - SD Card not working

Hello, I just bought a S20+ and I changed my 128g micro sd samsung car from my s9+ and I keep getting an error message.  I put it back in my S9 to format my card and still got the same message.

 

 

What can I do?  Thank you for your help!

Same issue here. The card was not encrypted. From S8 active to S20 5G
