    "Windows detected problems w SD card"
    Does anyone else get this screen every boot up like I do? I am afraid to hit yes...recommendations?
    not on my 950xl and new sandisk card.

    I have seen it on other phones in the past and went ahead and replaced the card.

    Ok question to my collective members...albeit a little late to the party, I just picked up a Samsung 64GB EVO Plus microSDXC UHS-l-Class 10 card from BestBuy for $20...I'm not concerned about the up tp 80MB/s Read Speed, or 20MB/s Write Speed...hell, I have plenty of RAM now...no 4k video recording at all...in fact have not 'video recorded' at all..lol
    In reads within the Storage Setting: SD Card (D:) --->2.75MB used out of 59.6GB----->I have formatted the card...where/what is 2.75MB ...And it is normal for a 64GB microSDXC card to read: 59.6GB ?? Thanks

    I realize that the thread is for the Lumia 950XL.....I have Lumia 950, AT&T Branded:
    OS: 10586.164----->via the Insider Preview Release
    Firmware: 01078.00017.15454.xxxx--->Of course still waiting for AT&T approved firmware updates...as we are 2-3 firmware updates behind..

    The size is because of the formatted capactity and how storage manufacturers actually use 1000 instead of 1024.

    You can read more of it here:

    Personally I think it's a little bit of a con in all of it :D

    I was trying to find an updated thread re the "best" microSD card for the lumia 950xl as I just recently upgraded to one, but this was the only thread I could find. Are there any new or further recommendations since this threat is a little old?

    I can update that my Transcend card continues to work with zero problems whatsoever since I got it back in December. Unlike my Sandisk card, which was utter garbage.

    I've only had my Lumia 950 XL for about 10 days but I'm using the SanDisk Ultra 200GB Micro SD, it was a gift when purchasing my LG V10, haven't had any issues with it so far,

    What are the real world maximum write and read speeds of the card reader in the Lumia 950's? Have anyone measured?

    I just measured the speed of the internal storage, 37 MB / s read and 65 MB / s write when copying a 1.5 GB file.
    It doesn't make sense to me, I thought read speed would be the faster one.

    Patriot is definitely a good manufacturer of storage devices. Second only to Transcend, in my mind:

    Just saw on Patriots own forums that their class 10 cards don't work on Android or Windows phones. If one fails, they will exchange for a class 4. Goodie gum drops. Dammit guys! Is there a stinking list of compatible cards or specs for the cards?

    would the new Samsung micro sdxc evo plus 256gb work in the 950xl ?

    I would bet yes since 2tb is the current limit. Possibly more. But mine does not read any larger extwrnal storage beyond 2tb hdd
