Will photos taken on an android display on Windows phone when SD card is inserted?

Views: 457 Replies: 3
Hi, I was previously using a Sony Xperia phone with a micro SD card to store any photos I take but have recently started using a Microsoft Lumia 550. When I insert my SD card into the Lumia 550, none of the photos taken on my old android device are displayed in the photo gallery. Might it be that the photos taken on an android device are incompatible with windows?

Any thoughts on this matter would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

Better moving all photos to a notebook, then format the card using phone senttings, and then move the photo again

When I inserted a card that was earlier in my Samsung tablet... the phone did recognise the images and songs.

The Photos app may not be looking for those photos in the right place.

But if you look in File Explorer, you should be able to find and view those photos.
