Hi, everyone.

I really hope this isn't one of those posts that makes people roll their eyes and think, "Not this again!" I promise that I searched and didn't find anything relevant. I bought my first tablet - SayCool A710 - a couple of days ago. I'm happy with my purchase so far, but there are a couple of things I'm completely clueless about and Google has failed me so far.

The tablet supports Micro SD card up to 32GB, so I went ahead and purchased said 32 GB, but the storage settings indicate only 157 mb space (both total and available) on the card. Why? How do I fix this?

I wanted to transfer files from my laptop to the tablet. I found plenty of info regarding how to do so, but after I transfer the file, I cannot find them on the device. Furthermore, the list of files I see on my laptop when the device is connected don't seem to match what I see in the tablet's file manager when I disconnect, though I'm supposedly in the same folder.

Am I missing something really basic about all this?

EDIT: Hoo boy! Was I ever missing something basic. Solution: Power device off. Connect to laptop. Power device back on. Problem solved!

Pleased you managed to get the data sorted. As for the sd card, where did you get it from? I There are plenty of fakes around sadly.
