I have recently changed phones, my sd card was part of internal storage on my previous phone(moto g3 turbo) and now when i want to use it on my new phone(galaxy s7) it keeps saying that you have to format the card first then you can access it.
Can someone tell me the solution of this, I don't want to loose all my data.
Plz help.

Try to put sd card in another phone and backup your data and format it with your device.

You can backup of your data by connecting this with your laptop by using USD slot connecting device and back it up on your computer. Then format the card and use it in your new smartphone.

You can transfer your SD card data to your computer, and then transfer the data to your new phone.

Just try RePicvid to recover files from corrupted SD card. Then format it according to the prompt.
