    Does anyone have trouble getting there micro SD card in? Is there a trick to it? I can get it in but it won't lock. It just bounces in and out. How'd you guys get it to lock? I put it with the groves facing up, that's correct right? Numbers obviously on top.

    Wow this is so noob lmao. Thanks.

    It has to be pressed in a little further than flush with the side of the case to lock. The card will then spring back up until it is flush. I use my fingernail to push it in but you could use another card or something else small if that won't do it.

    I though it was hard to latch the first time but I've had it in and out 3-4 times now and it is easy now that I made it work once.

    MicroSD cards are made fr people with nails. If you just have a sausag finger, you won't be able to get it in or out without a tool =)

    Thanks guys lol. I got it. Quick question regarding it again, does the notification have to stay in the notification bar the whole time? Or can you disable that somehow?

    Unfortunately it has to stay there, which I didn't like at first. But it does provide easy access to the storage card if you click it because it allows you to open up the external SD card storage folder and easily remove it.

    I like having the soft home button so it is always where I would expect it, even when using the device upside down.

    got a 32gb card today....tried to put a bunch of HD movies on it, but that requires NTFS (>4gb each)...the transformer was not able to read NTFS, so I had to put it back to Fat32 :(

    I hope that they will change that.

    Oh, and H264 720p video was choppy and without sound...I think it's a codec issue (tried 2 different video players from Market)

    @ mihaelb: It's a Tegra 2 issue. It can't play back high profile HD videos. It has to be main profile, or lower. I would bet the video you're playing is high profile.

    You can tap the clock at the bottom right of the screen to bring up the quick settings and slide the "Notifications" item off and it will hide the SD card indicator.

    I believe this shuts off all notifications though so that may not be so good.

    No unfortunately I think it's a limitation of the chip and can't be resolved via software. Video content is limited to SD. Another freaking blunder with Android tablets!

    You can check your videos by using this utility: MediaInfo

    Download it, Install it and then drag and or open your video.

    How do I get the micro SD card out? No fingernails. Tried a credit card to push and release. Seems jammed solid.
