Many Micro SD memory card errors reported by the Samsung Galaxy S9 users don’t necessarily indicate that the card is broken. If you’re lucky, the cause of the common notification of “files not recognized” on Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus is a formatting issue.
To put it simply, a memory card that hasn’t been formatted by the Android system of the device may not be properly read or recognized. Such errors can occur from the very begging or later on, after you have stored some files on the Micro SD memory card and you’re now trying to access it.
Whatever the case may be, formatting the card once again is the first thing you should try when you see the files not recognized on Samsung Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9 Plus. Keep in mind, though, that if you re-format the card you will lose everything stored on it. Consequently, before you proceed with the steps that we will describe below, take some time and back up your pictures, documents, videos, music, or everything else you had on it. Use a computer to transfer your content, re-format the card on the phone, and bring back your data afterward.
