4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, apart from adding 32gb cards., 24 Jan 2013
This review is from: Samsung 7.0 Galaxy Tab2 - White (8GB WiFi, Android 4.0) (Electronics)
A really great addition for anyone who needs the mobility of a computer without lugging a heavy, large laptop around.

Easy to set up and even easier to use. Plenty of Apps available from Amazon,(and others).

Now for one really frustrating issue, which having subsequently researched on the internet I find I am not alone.

I purchased a Sandisk 32gb Micro SDHC card in order to store my music and a few films.

I transferred my Amazon MP3 music and Windows media onto the card. Fine - worked without issue on my computer and my phone but unfortunately not on the Tablet. All the tracks either came up as "music format not supported" or "no file found". This was despite the tracks all being listed and the album covers showing.

Spoke to Samsung, who were pretty poor and stated " It should work". I knew that!

Downloaded Amazon's MP3 player onto the Tablet but again no joy.

I'll keep the card as it works with other devices but will go for a 16gb card from another manufacturer.

A real shame as there's clearly an issue with the Tablet and the 32gb Card, which is strange given that my phone is a Samsung Galaxy S2 and it works fine there. I should add that I don't think it's the card as my other cards which are both 8gb work on the Tablet, and the 32gb card was the second one provided by Amazon as the first was faulty (wasn't recognised on any device).

I'd highly recommend the Tablet; just be aware that it doesn't like Sandisk 32gb cards.

Had the same card problem with a Galaxy S media player, like a phone but with no phone bits in it. That wouldn't take my 16 gig Sandisk card but works perfectly with a 32gig Samsung one. Makes you wonder what's special about samsung cards.

a lot of sandisk micro cards or flash players have this problem, I have the same problem as you with a sandisk flash player
in my car, it will not play music, because my car system says it does not support this type of file.... its a pain, because I can use it on anything else.. my sony mp4 player has all the same music on and plays no probs in the cars. the sandisk f/drive has all the same music on as my back up, but will not play...... I think a lot of copied/pirate sandisk products are sold on amazon, not blaming amazon. but the sellers who sell these replica's of the real thing... same has happened with braun replacement t/brush heads and other tech/elec goods......... these mem cards are not worth the bother, rather pay a bit more from a high street retailer to make sure it the real deal. or pay more on amazon in the hope its the real deal... it is very annoying..
