  1. Do I have to format my brand new card in the Tab FIRST before putting music on it at my pc?
    Or is it ok to just add the music from my pc onto the new card then inset it into the tab?
    Please advise.

    Thank You

  2. Leuk hoor die uitleg. Ik heb een Galaxy S maar geen geheugen sleuf…niet te vinden en ik ben echt niet gek of simpel. Ik heb gisteren een extra Micro SD kaartje van samsung binnen gekregen middels een actie van ze maar ik denk dat ik hier dus helemaal niets aan heb tot mijn eigen grote frustratie en ongenoegen.

    Nice to hear that explanation. I have a Galaxy S but no memory slot … not to find and I’m really not kidding or simple. I have yesterday an additional Micro SD card of samsung received through an action of them but I think I have absolutely nothing to my own great frustration and discontent.
