I just bought a used Acer A500 16 GB tablet yesterday. Everything works great — except it doesn't recognize my 16 GB microSD card for storage, but says there is no external SD storage or it is emulated.

I don't know a lot about rooting and such; the guy just told me it was rooted and is running JellyBean 4.1, which works great.

Does anyone know how to get my SD card recognized again?

  • Oh... I didn't figure anything wrong with it -- but true, now it's much clearer. I will watch out better next time :) – Izzy Dec 2 '12 at 1:24

Please ensue that the device supports SDHC microSD cards.

Also ensure that the sd card is fat16 formatted.


Try, running scandisk on your card after connecting it with your computer...it should work
