    Re: Issue with not recognizing external SD card in Samsung Galaxy Tab

    Hello friend,
    Firstly get out your SD card and then connect it to the pc and just exchange some files in it..
    if it is possible then it means that the SD card is working properly and there might be some problem in your device.. for this you have to contact to the service center to solve this issue..
    if it is not possible to exchange the files,, then your SD card got corrupted.. you have to replace it to the newer one and use it in your device...

    it will definitely resolve your problem...

    thanks..

    Regrading this issue..

    In your device SD card is not connecting properly its lost some internal settings..

    And then scan completely your sd card once and fix now check whether its working or not..

    Already you format your sd card and even though its not working fine..

    Check once your device card slot got any error or not..

    If its not working means replace with new one..Still not responding means use new SD card and use it..

    Previous SD card is not working because its hanged up and corrupted so its not working..

    <<Hope you got it.Thank you>>

    hey

    There are few reasons why you are getting this problem :

    > Your device doesnt support that memory card

    > Your device's memory card slot got damaged

    > The memory card you are trying to use is corrupted

    For this problem to be solved follow the steps given below :

    Check by using another fine working memory card in your device .
    If it works fine then there is problem with the SD card which you were trying to mount in your device . Either it was corrupted or unsupported by your device.
    If it doesnt work for you then the problem surely is with the device's memory card slot.

    So , first check for the exact problem and act accordingly.
    If nothing works then take your device to the service centre get it checked
