    So got my lovely new Transformer trying to learn my ropes on it,.
    Then I get a new 32gig micro Sd card.
    So I put it in the slot and well normally they sort of click latch don't they.
    Well mine doesn't. If you put it all the way in the tablet reads it and says preparing card but then it just springs loose, well unless you hold it upside down.
    Am I missing something? is their a knack I don't know about? or have I got a very strange faulty machine.
    How does yours go in?
    Strange.

    Oh and while I'm here any recommendation on good 'android manual' type thingees. lol

    Mine was also tricky to get in. Hold the tablet so the port where the microsd. Card goes is pointing up. Out it is and push it into place. It only fits one way, so don't try to force it.

    ummm doing that. certain it in the right way but it just does not latch. Trying to give it a slight sideways push so that catch thingee on the side locks but not happening.

    Yeah with a nudge of the thumb, a wink and a kiss. Finally it stays in. Phew thought I had a faulty machine their.
    That in depth manual asus made really helped me out.

    Since where talking about microSD card, is there a way to read the microsd card from the eee pad with a PC?
    I owned an Archos 101 and when I mount it to the pc, I got 2 removable devices that appears on my PC, but not with Asus and I don't know how to mount or eject it from my pc (I only see a portable device which I can add or delete file)
