    I am brand new to both Android and the Flytouch 2 having just received one this morning.

    I was mightily impressed with the pad, especially for the price, that was until I tried plugging in a 16gb MicroSDHC card. When I first plug it in it says 'Preparing SD card' then a couple of seconds later it says 'Damaged SD card'. I get the same response in both card slots.

    I have tried plugging it in to my main computer and it just shows up as a Fat32 SD card, seems to be no problem there.

    Have I bought the right card type, a Class 4 Kingston MicroSDHC card, 16gb?

    I can't find anywhere on the Flytouch 2 to reformat the card.

    I am stumped. Any help would be gratefully received.

    As a hunch I re-formatted the SDHC card on my main computer and re-inserted it in to the Flytouch 2 and this time it 'prepared' correctly.

    I have been reading through this for info that I can use. Your advise was sound, went to my computer and reformatted and viola. Saved me a trip back to store. I say a loud "thank you".
