    Hey everyone,

    I'm a proud owner of the samsung galaxy tab 8.9 w/16gb internal memory, the only problem is that my tab does not come with a microsd slot for additional memory. I've been researching equipment that I can purchase to give me the micrsd slot and memory and I haven't come up with much. Amazon has various card readers/writers such as the GTmax tab reader/adapter but i'm not sure if it will work for my purpose:


    this link provides some of the various equipment I found on amazon. Any incite or ideas are welcomed thank you!

    Yep, any of those should work. One other alternative is to use a cloud service like DropBox to hold extra data.

    Make sure any cards or usb sticks, you use are formatted as Fat32 and sometimes may only work if plugged in before boot up. Also I heard if you don't eject them from the status bar pop up (like on a pc) it may corrupt the data.

    DropBox is a great way to go :D 2 Gb of storage for free and makes it a snap to share files between tab, computers and phone.

    Ok, so what do you use to plug into the proprietary slot on the Tablet? Do you have pics of what you're using, the whole unit? I'd like to upgrade mem but don't want some huge thing sticking out the bottom. Something like a small connector with a short cord that can be folded up behind the tablet and maybe put a cover over that so that all that's coming out the bottom would be the short adaptor with a bit of cord folded backwards behind the unit...this is what I'd like to do to avoid having something huge sticking out the bottom.

    Samsung has a USB connector that isn't too big. I haven't used mine yet though.
