32GB SDHC card; tablet sees it, but setting won't show available space
I have a Galaxy Note 10.1 2012 tablet with Android Version 4.1.2. It keeps running out of storage space, so I decided to mount a 32GB SDHC microSD card in the slot. I installed the card correctly, and the tablet sees the card, but after I mounted it, no available storage space info is showing in the Settings, Storage area under SD Card. It offers an icon on the home page, when I click to format the SD card, it acts like it does it, but the sd card icon returns to the black frame in the corner, and when I return to Settings, Storage, SD Card, all it offers for choices is Mount SD card. I suspect a faulty SD card slot, but wanted to get your opinion before I spend any money on a possible fix.
I have a newer tablet that I purchased last year, and it works A-OK, but would like to keep the older 2012 tablet working as I've gifted it to my 80-yr-old aunt to play slots!
Is this a good question?
