    PTAB8000 Polaroid Tablet Problem

    I recently had an error message stating " unfortunately the process Android.process.media has stopped working". To fix this I did a system reboot and now the internal SD storage isn't recognized when I try to download anything. Thus i'm not able top make downloads even though the internal storage has plenty of space, Also when I connect my tablet to my desktop pc and I press the button to activate the mass internal storage it keeps trying to load but never gets there. I'm running Android 4.0.3 and I'm not sure what to do at this point. Am I the only person having this issue?

    frustrated,

    Carl...

    Welcome to the forum Carl

    Go to settings - apps - all (or running) and find that process. Tap it and tell it to clear the cache, (and data if available) then force stop and restart your tab again.
    Locked out of your Tablet? - Printing from an Android tablet (or phone) - Connecting to the Internet with no WiFi - Move/copy/cut/paste files to and from your tablet - WiFi connection issues - Getting Flash Player

    I tried that and I still can't download anything. I keep getting the error message " No SD card". I recently noticed in my settings > storage - the internal SD card (2GB) isn't mounted. everytime I press the mount SD card button at the bottom of the screen for a split second it says " preparing SD card" and then goes away. is there something else I need to do to mount the internal SD card?

    I am having exactly the same problem. When I first started the tablet up i was able to download the app stores and even apps. Then I started receiving an error message something about = android media process stopped working. I popped up over and over and was really annoying so i used reset/backup. Now when i try to download app store it says i need a sd card. (Never needed it before) I purchased a card but is does not seem to mount. HELP!!

    Mine is doing the same thing. I can still use the default apps, but cannot access the internal SD card. I can acess the external sd card then I connect via usb to my laptop, but not the internal sd. I can also transfer files to the external sd via usb, but they do not show up in the "my files" menu on the tablet. Is this thing fried or what?

    Re: PTAB8000 Polaroid Tablet Problem

    Hello all,

    This is a very common problem with this tablet, although from expierience installing this firmware:
    http://southerntelecom.com/polaroids...e_SD_OTAv2.zip
    fixes the problem. Download the zip, a pdf with instructions is inside. Although an external sd card with at least 140mb is required.

    Hope this fixes the problem!

    I downloaded this zip file but did not find any pdf w/ instructions, can you tell me what file this is contained in? I bought this for my mother in law for Christmas and I am not sure when this started but I can tell you if she cant get into her Price is Right slots game it is going to be my head! I also tried the factory reset of holding down the volume - and power button but that didn't seem to reset anything.

    Inside the zip is another folder containing 3 files and another zipped folder, put the files and zip on the root of a FORMATTED, clean sd card with nothing on it. Pop it in the tablet with it turned off, hold the power button and minus volume button until it turns on and you see green text that says"Upgrade step 2, do not power off." Make sure you have at least 60% battery and the tablet is plugged in.
