There is no good answer here. Beware that the move to MicroSD cards is "on." Just when I thought SD cards were great, our new phone and laptop uses the newer MicroSD card.

Not much room to write on there.

If it were me, I'd devise a color coding system, and then get a bunch of multi-colored dot stickers that would even fit comfortably on MicroSD cards.

So, for example, a purple sticker might mean it's photos, a yellow sticker might be data files, blue stickers music, etc. Or if they all contain pictures, say from a camera, then each color might represent a different time period or one color represents one vacation, while another color represents a second vacation or trip, and so on.

Thanks for the idea. Since I will be storing music on these I might match color with mood/style of music which should make it easy to remember.

Wondering if anyone has done something similar. A small concern the sticker might catch and come loose gumming up the slot. I am going to experiment with it some though. I figure I can start with a relatively inexpensive card reader.
