    The tablet isn't accessing my micro SD card, it's reading it but not accessing it. If I try to move an app onto it, the tablet freezes. If I try to access the photos or apps on the SD card, the tablet freezes. If is remove and reinsert the sd card, the tablet restarts. Once it restarts, I get a message that reads, "Process system isn't responding. Do you want to close it?" I click 'ok' but that does not seem to solve anything. Why is this happening and how do I fix it?

    Welcome to Android Central! The SD card could be corrupt, defective, or counterfeit. Install SD Insight to see if the card is genuine or counterfeit. Counterfeit cards are programmed to report more storage than they actually have, and if you try saving more than the card can actually hold, then files can start getting corrupt.


    If it's a valid card, then go to Settings>Storage, Unmount the card, remove it, and insert it into your computer. Can the computer read these files? Backup as much as you can right now, then run chkdsk to look for bad sectors: http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...d-sd-card.html.

    Thanks, I'll try that. Although, I doubt it is the SD card because I was able to access the contents in it when I inserted it into my desktop. It was working just fine on the tablet until recently.

    Sometimes the reader hardware has a thing about certain brands of cards, it's technical something to do with the formatting of the card and some other stuff only techies can make sense out of. For instance, one of my old phones hated any brand of sd card except sandisk it had all sorts of issues with any other brand of card. Just because it works in your pc may not mean much but if it worked in the tablet before .... look for corrupted files or bad sectors, they last a long time but not forever back it up and replace it. Have you taken a pencil eraser to the contacts? If you live someplace like florida or anyplace near the beach (salt air) the contacts could have a bit of corrosion on them. An electronics cleaner like CRC is great but a good old pencil eraser works just as well just don't get too frisky with the pencil eraser lest you damage the contacts.
