    Hey everyone- I see alot of info on here but before I go and flash my tab i wanted to see what the best route would be - I have a zt 180 android 2.2 with kernel 2.6.32.9 and a build number of
    20110115.120935

    I cant mount an sd card- no option to even format it- ive tried formating it on a droid phone, computer (xp and 7)- all of it and still cant get my pad to acknowledge it-I know a firmware flash is most likely necessary - just not sure what build to use-any help would be great !

    cheers

    just to make sure you looked under "settings -> sd card & device storage" and you didn't see the option to format the sd card

    looks like you have to reflash the device

    I have the same problem with the sdcard. Added to that is that the ZT180 will not go into flash mode. When I press the circular key on the front the screen says 'prepare enter mmc mode, then at the bottom of the screen it says 'press enter when insert, other exit' and underneath that 'no card insert'. When I put an sd card with the image on, the tablet cannot read the disk and says 'no image found'. The image is in a folder ztudate. I have flashed it via the sd card slot before, so I know that I am putting the files on correctly.
    Is anyone else having this problem?

    Ooooopppps. I didn't realise my ZT180 is a version 2. Maybe I flashed with the wrong rom.

    Flashed with ZT180(V1-256/2g) KMOD.VTL Version 3, for both versions of ZT180, and the sd card was read. Up and running again. Phew!!!!
