Default Ext SD Card Not Recognized

Like the title says, picked up an SD card, doesn't show up under the Storage menu or when I connect to PC via USB. I've downloaded an app that lets me format the SD and it shows up there, but after formatting I still can't access or even see that the SD card in installed.

It's a GSKILL class 10 64gb SDXC

Hmmmm. Have you tried a different card to see if you get the same results? I'm using a Lexar 633x 64Gb card. No problems to report so far.

Just tried, thus SD card works in my S5 but not my g3, and another SD card same manufacturer doesn't work on g3.

I wonder if you're formatting it in a way the G3 doesn't like.

Well I'm not formatting like anything. Went straight from the packaging to my phone, then to my S5 and that's it

Can't be the case because the SD card shows up in formatting apps from the play store.

I have a Samsung 32 GB micro SD card. Says 10 HC on it. It worked immediately when I popped it in and I didn't have to format it or anything. Has all my previous files on it.
