Why is my SD Card Asking to Format When Trying to Store Photos From Phone?

Environment

  • SD card

Answer

An SD card that is asking to be formatted already has data on it from another device. To use the SD card you have to format it. Formatting the SD card will erase all previous data.

If you don't want to lose the data on your SD card you will want to store it on another computer or device or get a new SD card.
