    Can't access nor write on external sd card

    Just bought the 32g version of tf300, l love it. however, I have one problem,even though the tablet has acknowledged that a sd card has been inserted, I cannot write any content onto it. The "App 2sd" app that i use to manage my files always shows that 'the device does not have a real primary external storage, or the external storage is emulated. Moving app to sd function may not be supportedby this device'.

    Any one shed s on this would deeply appreciated.

    Welcome to the forum!

    App2SD is not supported on HC or ICS with the ASUS devices.

    App2SD was developed for phones with small internal memory. With 32 GB of internal memory, I am pretty sure that you will not fill this up with apps.

    Also, phones tend to mount the external card at /mnt/sdcard/. The HC and ICS tablets mount the internal memory at this point.

    External devices are mounted in the /Removable/ directory (SD, microSD, USBdisk1, etc.) based on what is installed.

    Frederuco, thanks. I agree that it is unlikely I'll use up the internal memory soon. I just want to know how do I write /download onto the external card in case I need to do that in the future. Also, is there app in Google Play that helps me to manage my files on either the internal and external memory the same time. Thank you very much for your help.

    The in built File Manager app does a good job. It allows drag and drop to move folders and files even from internal to external memory.

    I also use ES File Explorer because it is a dropbox client, FTP client and can access shared network folders.
