Hey there, on my Phone it shows (250GB) on my PC (249GB) is this normal orn't? (I think my phone can handle it, because it can read the SD-card right?.. my phone is: Samsung Galaxy J5 2015 Model.. on the details from the phone it says it can ONLY take up to 128GB of External storage.. can i damage my Phone/SD card when i use it in this phone?...)

It is not unusual for SDXC cards to show a slightly different size than they are shown as having as their capacity on certain devices, and it's not uncommon for "rounding errors" to cause the same sort of thing even on one device.


My Windows 10 machine shows a Verbatim card that is said to have 512 MB shows as 500 MB in certain places and 499 MB at others, depending on what program is reporting the capacity.


I have not had any damage shifting this between devices either to the device or the cards.

So there's nothing to worry about?
