I am having issues with a couple of my micro SD cards that I use for my tablets, etc. If I format a micro SD card for an Android device such as my Galaxy Tab Pro, what file system should it be formatted to? (FAT32, exFAT, NTFS?)

This varies from device to device. I'm not sure what your device supports. Your best bet is to format the card, transfer a file or two and see if they work.

Try exFAT first.

Then FAT32 second. 


Better yet, can you put the SD card in the device and format it through the device?


Let us know how you go, this thread will be a good resource for future people searching.
