ottischwenk,
here is my horror movie so far:

1. I barely inserted 256 GB card into Alita - and it was detected, but after an attempt to eject it - it was no longer detected.
2. Somehow I was able to get it out.
3. I filed off some of its edge, so now it can be inserted and ejected pretty much normally.
4. However, it is not detected by Alita.
5. I assumed it was damaged, because a 32 GB card is detected by Alita, so Alita seems to be OK.
6. Turns out, the 256 GB card is OK, after all. It works elsewhere, but not in Alita.

7. Now I got 512 Evo Plus. I inserted it into Alita - it was detected, everything is OK.
8. Then I formatted it as internal storage - successfully. But then it disappeared.
Only 26 GB or so free storage is shown. Both with the Alita's file manager and with Explorer on PC.
9. It is not even shown in the notification windows. As if completely gone.
10. Because I had this bad history with 256 GB card, I thought perhaps it is no longer detected as well.
11. After rebooting - the same, no increased storage, no traces of the card in the notification window. Nothing.
12. Then I removed the card - I got notification "Samsung card is missing, please insert it" or similar. - So it means that it is still detectable by Alita, only "integrated" as internal and completely invisible?
So how am I supposed to use it?

Worse, I cannot reverse back to external. On Mimas, it was somehow possible to do so.
On Alita, no such option, simply nothing.
I guess, if I reformat it on PC and insert back, I will get some notification.
Anyway, at this point my dream is to make it work as external.
It is a total disaster so far with the internal mode.
