Sd card issues on my note 3?

I bought a 64gb SanDisk ultra xc for my note 3. I formatted it on the phone and it appears to be working fine except it's not storing pics and videos on the card and is storing them on the phones internal memory. Is there a setting to change that?

My other issue is that when I remove the card from my phone and input it into my laptop it is not recognized by laptop. It offers to format which I tried and once it formats it reads it as a 27gb card. I'd like to be able to add music from my laptop to the sd card directly. Is that possible?

Edit: I'm rooted with kingo but running the stock rom.

I have the same card. I did not format on the device. It reads it, but link2sd does not. I am looking for a solution as well.

I'm curious to know if this is card specific. I've never had these issues before with older sd cards.

So after some tinkering I got my card working. I have the same set up as Chillout. So I put the card in my wife's N3 and it read the card properly. So I decided to Oden back the stock firmware and the PIT reparations found here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2576104. When I was done the card still wouldn't read. So, I decided to flash the stock firmware us in Kies. When it finished, the card read just fine. Next I rooted again with Kingo and all is well. I'm not saying that this is the answer, but I feel that somehow my partitions got fouled up. I have had this type of issues on other devices and found that a factory restore, while it is a bother, seems to work in a pinch for getting a clean slate. See the screen of my card using link2sd.
