    Hi,

    received my S7 this morning.

    I have an immediate problem, I plugged in a Sandisk 2 GB sd card, it is not seen by the file manager.

    I tried a second sd card that works fine in my Hero phone, same problem

    Going into settings shows total internal space 175 MB, Available 142 MB
    SD Card - total & available space unavailable and mount SD card greyed out

    Am I missing something, or do I have a dud S7 ?

    Pete

    Try doing a FAT32 reformat of the SD Card in your PC, then insert it in the tablet. that MIGHT resolve your issue

    ah - it seems that the S7 does not mount sd cards when they are plugged in, a reboot solved the problem
