Here's a free rant about the church of expandable memory:
I have 2 64GB SanDisk cards. And yay, it's so much cooler than fixed memory in iPhones and some Lumias. Only: it isn't really. The idea in the past was: your phone breaks and you take out the card and pop it into the new phone. Or into a card reader to transfer content to your PC/Mac... whatever. It used to work just peachy in most cases. These days? Not so.
Example: one of my 64 GB cards was 1st used in a Lumia 1520. No probs. Then I tried to use it in a HTC One M8 so I wouldn't have to sync all those pics and tracks again... Only: nope.
Card had to be reformatted to work properly in the M8. Reverse: the same.
And whichever phone I use for the format: card reader connected to Mac, and it's not recognised. HTC, BB and MS sync apps for Mac do not work properly with those cards either.

Essentially, these days for a number of reason incl 'security' and 'privacy' features pretty much every device wants to format an SD card to its needs before it becomes useable.

If you think I'm just too stupid, or it's Apple's fault, or MS/Nokia's or or or... nope. Google the issue. There are literally millions of hits. Posts by people who struggle with those nice big cards.
Some phones, by the way, claim they have no problem with 64GB + cards, but in actuality they only use 32GB... unless you go to some lengths to 'fix' it. Many people don't get why their Samsung Galaxy says "memory full"... Well, there. It isn't full. But your Sammy only acknowledges 32GB of that 64 available.

I can't say that I have ever had an issue with moving SD cards between devices. On holiday I repeatedly moved a micro SD card between my Samsung phone, Canon camera and Windows XP netbook.

I would take photos with the camera during the day, pop the card in to my phone to back up to the cloud in the evening (WiFi stopped working on the netbook) pop the card in to my netbook to do some processing of the images I wanted to share whilst away, save the processed images back on to the card, pop the card back in to the mobile to share on whatever website and then finally put the card back in to the camera to take more photos. I never once had to do any formatting or had any issues reading and writing any files or locations.

Odd. I initially blamed the HTC One M8 I had on trial. Its firmware was somewhat 'b*ggered' by Vodafone. But then the same happened between Lumias, BB Z10, and Galaxy Cam and 2 Mac and a Linux PC... Since 2 cards are doing the same, I can't believe they are faulty/to blame.
And the Samsung issue re 64GB cards is well documented. Easy to google.

Mind you: I have NO issues with 32 + 16 GB cards...
