    Cannot Mount SD Card

    Anyone able to mount a 64GB SD card?

    From the 'Settings' screen & 'Storage' it shows 'Insert SD card for mounting'. The tablet recognized the card insertion & then shows 'Mount SD card'. Clicking on that is acknowledged with the blue highlight, but the card never mounts.
    I have checked the card while attached to a Win7 system & all seems OK (exFAT32 format, files copy to & from).

    microSDXC: SanDisk Mobile Ultra 64GB, Class10 - "Ideal for Android smartphones and tablets" !!!

    Did you try formatting the card to FAT32? Not sure that exFAT32 actually works.

    You may also want to try NTFS. Since 3.2 NTFS cards have worked.

    Thanks Frederuco,
    After a few misspent hours forcing a FAT32 format (Command Prompt & DOS command) - which seemed to go well, but then would not read on Win7, WinXP or the tablet. Formatting the SD card with NTFS works for me.

    Thank you! I got the same card and it wasn't being recognized as exFAT. Formatting in NTFS right now.

    My Tech and I ran the Windows format for NTFS and it went for an hour or so and then said that it could not complete the format. Worse it deformatted the card from the default. Now the card is locked and I can't unock it physically

    GOT IT!!!!!

    Here is what I did:
    I Finally got the card out of write-protect
    II. Put it in it's adaptro and into my card reader
    III. Using my Acer Veriton i7 quad core: Windoes 7 OS
    1. Format
    2. ntfs
    3. Read things to be sure that it knew that this was a 64 gig card
    4. uncheck Quick format
    5. let 'er rip
    IV. Check:
    1. Setting>Storage>SD card. 59 gig showin
    2. USB check for recognition; screen showd both Internal Memory and SD card
    A. Internal Memory has Folder LOST DIR
    V. MILLER TIME

    Now what I would like to do is move my media from Internal storage to the SD card.
