    Hello and help! My Note 3 reads and functions fine with a 64gb card inserted. However, I have about 21gb of music alone that I keep trying to place on the card. I have tried both mounted and unmounted (using card adapter on PC.) I have tried copy and paste. I have tried move to F drive. I have tried Windows media player sync. Each time it shows transfer complete and when I try my music player(several different ones on the phone) it only shows some songs complete and others play only for 1 sec then skip to the next song which usually plays for 1 sec and skips to the next until it hits a song that plays fully. I had this problem before with my Galaxy S3. It was never resolved and I sold it and bought an Iphone 64gb to run the music. That worked but had terrible reception so I have switched back to the new Note 3. I have tried Easy phone sync and a drm removal tool. ALL of my ITunes songs are now in MP3 format and run no problem. Short of transferring each song individually, what can I do to move them to the sd card completely?

    How did you format the card? I had problems starting with my S3, music would be corrupted, have strange filenames and wouldn't delete.
    I formatted it to fat32 in my laptop, and since then it was perfect in my S3, Note 2 and Note 3.

    Fat32 is a better idea under Android for now. I have a 64Gb with no problems.

    I have since found that if I just load the song files themselves, (the actual mp3 file) and not the hierarchy of the folders (ie artist,album,song titles) they load and play fine. Except, I cannot get the album art to show correctly (FleetwoodMac art shows up for Billy Joel) I guess I'll have to fiddle with that but for now I finally got them on.

    Thanks,

    GG

    That's more symptoms of the problems I was having.
    I'm almost certain that your card is formatted as exfat, and if you format as fat32 it will be fine

    I use a app from the market to edit my album covers.
    I hate not having the covers show when Im playing music

    Search for fat32format. It's a small program that will be able to format your card. By default Windows can't use fat32 on devices over a certain size (4GB I think) so you'll need this program
