1.Swipe the Message away

Sounds simple but go ahead and swipe the message to the left, When I did this it disappeared and did not come back.You can actually swipe it to the right but some other users have indicated when swiping it that way it would keep coming back. Sounds weird but its worth a shot.

2.Add any File

Go ahead and add a picture or video to the SD card. When SD cards are new there can be issues and all needs to be done for the error to go away is to add a file or two to the SD card. You can take fresh pictures or videos or transfer them over.

3.Format the SD card

Format the SD card on your device or better yet format it on your computer. Simply connect it to the PC and in This PC where you see all drives then right-click and format. Be sure to backup your files before doing or performing a format as it will erase all your files.

4.New SD card or Smaller one

Sometimes the issue lies with the SD card itself it’s recommended that you use a Samsung branded SD card or other reliable bands. It also may be the size of the SD card that’s at fault so get a new SD card that’s smaller or swap to another to test that the device is working.
