    I have a 16GB Micro SD card, yet when it is formatted it only shows 39.1MB of space available. How do I set this up to take the full 16GB of space available???Please help, I am trying to move a lot of music and books to my tablet. Any help would be appreciated.

    Have you tried reading its "Properties" on your Desk/Laptop? might possibly be a fake.

    You really have to watch out for memory cards purchased online--many counterfeits floating around out there.

    Try reformatting it in a modern version of Windows using FAT32 or NTFS.
    Power off the tablet, then insert the card and boot up.
