Xoom SDCard tip, no root

    If anyone else out there is still using a Xoom (I am till there's something with a better screen, 4g, and a card slot) I just spent an hour discovering this:

    Amazon had a sale a couple days ago on SD Cards - 64gb for $40 so I snapped one up. It wouldn't mount in my Xoom. I searched and searched and finally hit on this: Put the SD card in your phone (new enough to be running jelly bean). It prompted me, "This SD Card is damaged, do you want to format?" I said yes. It formatted, I yanked it and put it in the Xoom and now I've got a Xoom with 32gb native storage and 64gb on the card!

    So...two year old tablet with nearly 100gb storage, 4g and decent resolution. Beat that Nexus or Note.

    I have this same problem that you were talking about.
    But after I put it in my Xoom it still won't mount.
    I used a galaxy s3(running jelly bean) to format it.

    It would be really frustrating to find out that I wasted all that money for nothing.
    I don't have much use for the sd card if it's not in the Xoom.

    So...any ideas? :)

    Try formatting it on your PC as fat32. What size sd-card is it?
