    Hello all, I just had to ask. Does anyone know if most tablets will take any class micro sd card?

    To be on the safe side, I'd use at minimum class four card.

    I learned this the hard way on my 1Ghz cpu tablet. Slower tablets with 600 Mhz cpus might be able to use the slower 2gb cards without class designations. But even my now departed Sylvania Express Tablet started having problems with the slower card.

    I've been using class 4 cards and haven't had any problem with them.

    You're welcome. Sometimes they offer free shipping. I very seldom buy them local... only when I need it now. They seem to have a better selection than amazon. I thought everyone knew about www.newegg.com.

    Hi guys, I am looking to buy a tablet for my wife. I have read that the file allocation tables for the android have changed on 2.2 from 2.1. What I would like some help understanding is that as the micro sd cards usually come formatted with fat 32, do the tablets read from these?

    Thanks guys

    Fat32 is pretty much the standard and the tablets read them just fine.

    I have a 32gb the class 4 kenningston that I got from www.newegg.com and it works excellent. I have an a-data 16gb class 6 in my Evo and it works excellent.

    I suggest at least a class 4.

    Hi guys, thanks for the reply. Wasn't sure. I know it works in the android phone. I have a class 10 32 GB micro SD that I got from ebay for $49.99. I am told that the higher the class the better for playing movies and games.
