Now when you want to use an SD Card back to like using it on your Android Phone or camera, you just cannot use it by simply inserting it on the SD Card slot and turning on your gadget. You have to properly format the SD Card.
Note: If this method does not work for you, I will be writing another method for Windows, Mac and Linux systems in the future.
If you format separately the two drives (E: and F:), you will end up with two drives instead of one that has the full capacity of the SD Card.
I am using a laptop which only has 32GB for its main storage. Unfortunately, this becomes full quickly if I will be installing a lot of programs and add some cloud storage to it.
Fortunately, the computer has a microSD Card slot which I can use to expand my storage, but I could not install programs or put my cloud storage directory to it since it is not recognized as a Permanent Storage by Windows.
Do not worry, though, there is actually a way to make the Windows see your SD Card as a Permanent Storage. Below are the steps that you need to do.
Note: This tutorial would also work on Windows Tablet who also has the same problems as I have.
1. Make sure that your SD Card is formatted to NTFS
To be able to mount the SD Card as a Permanent Storage it must be formatted to the same file system as your computer’s main storage file system. For Windows 10 case the main file system is NTFS.
I had a hard time imagining how the microSD Card Breakout Board would fit physically into my project so I decided to create this post just in case you want to see close up photos of the breakout board.
