    Not 100% certain I'm understanding. The card should be formatted FAT32. Formatting on a PC would be best along with using the PC to download the firmware.

    When this problem happens the card can't even be accessed. And yes, a PC is necessary.

    2 suggestions. Get ES File Explorer as it makes accessing external cards pretty obvious compared to some other file managers. Also,in settings - storage, is there no option to mount the drive?

    There have been issues with some SD cards being knockoffs and as a result Android has had problems seeing them correctly. If it was a major brand from a reliable source it may be OK.

    This is a problem regarding the "internal" sd card, aka internal storage, not the external sd. I said to put a v2 rom from Polaroid on an external sd card and to flash it to fix the problem.

    I am not sure what problems you are experiencing, please be more specific. Are you trying to put the firmware on the sd card through the tablet? That won't work, you'll need an sd card reader. (You can get one cheap at Walmart.) Here's a little troubleshooting checklist.
    -Firmware must be downloaded on a computer, not the tablet
    -Firmware must be taken out of it's zipped folder after downloaded and put in the main directory of the sd card
    -The sd card can't be accessed through the tablet, but by an sd card reader or something else that will read a micro sd card.

    Did you pay any attention to what I said to the other guy? It is NOT to be downloaded on the tablet!

    To break this down more, if you are doing a firmware update (or the only updating polaroid seems to do with these) you must on your COMPUTER, download, unzip the firmware from southerntelecom,( Aka polaroid). Then use the CORD that came with your tablet, plug it into your tablet and computer. Then get the unzipped files on your computer to send to your (powered off?) tablet. androidpizza, what is the update # on the link you listed? I updated in feb and am on # 14. To all, the polaroid tablet is not intuitive. does not fix it own issues like your computer gets periodic updates. It is a (labor intensive, annoying)different animal.
