Power off the phone, insert the microSD card, then power the phone back on. The phone should detect the card and may ask if you want to format the card. Once formatted, the 'mount SD card' option should highlight. To get to the menu, go to: Settings > Storage > SD card - mount.
Thanks for ur reply but I have tried turning phone off and also leaving it off for a few minutes but it's still not detecting my sd card

Thanks for ur reply but I have tried turning phone off and also leaving it off for a few minutes...What brand of microSD card are you using? Some cheaper, lesser known brands can sometimes cause problems. What capacity in GB's is it?

Hey Angela,

Rikkster's right! In fact, some Micro SD Cards work better than other. I've experienced that myself with my previous phone. I had difficulties with a specific card that was improperly ejected randomly. I decided to try a high-end model and didn't have any issues after that.

Rikkster also mentioned the card capacity and that's a very good point. You can add up to 64 GB (microSD) on the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime. However, if the storage capacity of your microSD is more than 64GB, your phone might not recognize it.

Hope this helps!

Manufacturers didn't shipped phones with any SD/ microSD card. If you would like, you would have to buy it somewhere else and use it in the phone.
