    Memory card (microSD card)
    Installing a memory card
    Your device accepts memory cards with maximum capacities of 200 GB. Depending on the 
    memory card manufacturer and type, some memory cards may not be compatible with your 
    device.
    •	Some memory cards may not be fully compatible with the device. Using an 
    incompatible card may damage the device or the memory card, or corrupt the data 
    stored in it.
    •	Use caution to insert the memory card right-side up.
    •	The device supports the FAT and the exFAT file systems for memory cards. When 
    inserting a card formatted in a different file system, the device asks to reformat the 
    memory card.
    •	Frequent writing and erasing of data shortens the lifespan of memory cards.
    •	When inserting a memory card into the device, the memory card’s file directory 
    appears in the 
    My Files → SD card folder.
