    I just got micro sd card for my Asus transformer tablet. and i was wondering how to move all my apps and music and what not onto the sd card?
    It reads the card just fine it just wont let me move apps onto it like on my phone.

    Because this device has both internal storage and external storage, and the implementation of moving apps to sdcard is actually using the internal storage, not the external storage.

    If you unlock the bootloader, you an make use of Data2SD. Otherwise, sadly, no, and I have a pair of UHS-1 64GB micro SDCards wishing it were otherwise.

    You can move music and pics to your SD card if you'd like. The easiest way is to plug the tablet into the computer and use Windows Explorer. It's just drag and drop from one 'drive' to the other.

    As for apps, yeah, just leave 'em where they are. Some apps can't move (the programming won't know where to find them), widgets MUST be in internal memory or they don't work correctly.

    You have to go to asus' website and download the unlock tool.

    ***NOTE*** Unlocking the bootloader voids your warranty immediately - and in case you're thinking you an revert later on, you cannot - plus, the unlock tool contacts the ASUS website and transmits your device's serial number to ASUS to get a verification before unlocking - so, yes, they will know immediately.

    If you're not worried about warranty replacement then grab the tool and follow the directions. Even though it says ICS it works on all TF700 stock firmware, ICS and JB.
