SD card needs to be formatted every time?

Loving and hating my new Ricoh GR iii. The two hour battery life, for example, I very hate. But the unbelievably sharp images shot from the hip with one hand are to die for

Latest in the hate section is the following issue which I wonder if anyone can suggest a solution to. I shoot with a 64gb card in. Sometimes I like to take the card out and stick it in the Mac and have a little look at what I've shot without importing it. And then the next time I head out, I put the card back in the camera. But with this GR iii, each time I put the card back in, despite having formatted it in the Ricoh the time before, it tells me it's not formatted. So I have to either not shoot until I can transfer the images off, or reformat and lose everything on the card.
