How To Fix SD Card Notification On Galaxy S9 And Galaxy S9 Plus

From all the things that could happen to your Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9 Plus, believe us, the SD card notification that keeps popping up should be one of the least frustrating ones! So, don’t get too mad if you start seeing the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus “SD Card, for transferring photos and media” message showing up on the display…

Especially if it’s just once or twice, as in an isolated event that doesn’t seem to have a frequency pattern, don’t sweat about it. In fact, it’s normal for you to see this message if you’ve just inserted a new MicroSD card. Or in the event that you have rebooted the device and you’re now back to the normal running mode. In the last instance, you could get the suggestion of exploring or ejecting the card, which, like we said, is totally normal.

Nevertheless, if you haven’t changed anything lately but the SD card notification on Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus keeps showing up, you have to do something about it. Not necessarily because it’s a serious malfunction, but mainly because it could turn into an unnecessary source of frustration. So, why not avoid it, if you can?


Things you can try to get rid of SD Card notification on Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus…

  1. First things first, take out the SIM card and reinsert it after a while – just like you reboot your smartphone when it’s playing tricks on you, reinserting the card could work;
  2. If you’re still getting that popup, it won’t hurt to check the card tray as well, maybe the SIM isn’t correctly positioned in the tray;
  3. Now that you’ve ruled out the first two things, consider testing the phone with a different MicroSD – if the problem persists, obviously, it isn’t the card itself to blame;
  4. So, the last thing you can suspect is a hardware problem, which is why you should have a Samsung technician properly inspect the device – who knows, it might even require a replacement, don’t waste your time with other attempts that aren’t helping you!


We probably don’t need to insist on this final detail, as you’ll see for yourself. Still, we wanted you to know that swiping the popup will, indeed, make the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus SD card notification go away from your Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, but only temporarily. The next time you’ll reboot your phone, it will be there, annoying you even more than the previous time!
