Samsung SD Card Notification Won't Go Away

We've noticed that there are a lot of users complaining about the SD card notification shows up again and again on their phones. It seems to be an unsolved issue, but there are still some methods worth trying. If you face the same issue, try the following solutions, and see if it can solve your problem.

How to Remove SD Card Notification on Android

The repeating SD card notification happens to various carriers and SD card brands with different capacities. Turning off notifications doesn't help at all, as it pops up randomly in seconds. The following are some experimental methods from Android forums, any of which turns out helpful. You may try each of them until fixing the SD card notification problem on your Galaxy S7 phone.

Method 1: Reinsert the SD Card

One possible reason that could lead to the problem is the bad connection between your SD card and the Galaxy S7 phone. Remove your SD card, wait 5 minutes or longer, put your SD card into your Samsung phone again, and check if it still exists.

Method 2: Block the Notification

Press and hold the notification, press the "I" icon on the right, and choose block all notifications. This method would block all android system notifications.

Method 3: Create a New Album on the SD Card

Another reason why you keep seeing this notification is that you haven't started using the SD card. Please try to create a new album on it, add some photos or videos in your SD card. Or just transfer a few songs to your SD card. Then check if you have solved the problem.

Method 4: Factory Reset your Phone

According to users' reports, this problem happens when they just start using their new phones. So if there's not too much data on your Samsung phone, factory-reset your phone and check if this method would solve your problem. Please make a backup before resetting your device.

Method 5: Format Your SD Card

Some users said they've tried to format their SD cards, and it solves the problem. Follow the steps below to format your SD card.

Step 1: Back up your sd card: Plug your phone into your computer and copy off the contents of the SD card.

Step 2: On the phone, navigate to "Settings" -> "Memory" -> "SD Card". 

Step 3: In the submenu, choose "FORMAT".

Step 4: When the format is complete, all your data on the microSD card will be erased. Now plug the Galaxy S7 back into the computer and copy all the contents back to the microSD card. In most cases, the random SD card notification won't appear anymore.

Method 6: Swap Your Galaxy S7 (Edge) with a New One

A small group of users also tried to factory reset Galaxy S7, unmount the SD card, re-mount the SD card, move SD card contents to internal memory. Those attempts work for some time, but the problem came back again in the end. If none of the methods mentioned here solve the case, then this might be the last method you're going to take. Contact Samsung customer service and request a new product if it's still under warranty. Don't be afraid of being rejected; it's probably that Galaxy S7 is a buggy phone that needs to be improved.
