When I plug it into the usb port, it says preparing memory device, then it says safe to remove and it will not show up in the file manager. Can I not have the micro sd card in (which is a 4gig card, I am assuming this is the only one since it came already slotted in the outer tf slot) and plug in a thumb drive at the same time? Thanks so much for helping with this.
Put your thumb drive in a PC, download SDFormatter.exe and format the thumb drive with that, once done, make or copy a small text file onto the thumb drive then try it again in your tablet. You don't always need the text file, but it seems to force the tablet to write the two required folders on the memory stick, and then it recognises the memory ok.
