Insert and remove a microSD card from your Galaxy tablet
In case you need more storage space, your tablet lets you use a microSD or microSDHC card to expand its memory. This secure digital card lets you store pictures, music, and other data. You can even enhance them with other SD compatible devices.
Insert a microSD card
Note: If your SD card is not being detected by your tablet, it may be in a different file form or may be damaged.
There are two different ways to insert the microSD card into your tablet, depending if you have a slot, stacked tray, or tray.
If your tablet has a slot, open the microSD card slot cover, and then insert the microSD card. If your tablet has a stacked tray or a reguar tray, use the ejector tool that came with your tablet. Push the tool into the hole in the tray until it pops out. If you don't have an ejector tool, you can use an object like a pin or paperclip that can fit through the hole. Place the card in tray, and then insert it back in to the tablet.
For more detailed information, check your tablet's user manual. You can download user manuals for your tablet from Galaxy Tabs Support.
Unmount and remove a microSD card
Note: To prevent damage to information stored on the memory card, always unmount the card before removing it from the tablet. Unmounting an SD card may stop some apps from functioning until you mount the SD card again.
Before you remove the microSD card, you'll need to unmount it first.
Navigate to Settings, and then search for and select Storage. Tap SD card, tap More Options, and then tap Storage settings. Tap the Eject icon to unmount the microSD card.
Finally, you can safely remove the microSD card from your tablet.
