    SD card in dock useless?

    I'm still on 4.3 firmware. Everything works great. External 2TB drive connects to usb and transfers files to micro sd on tablet as well as internal memory.

    The SD card in the dock however is a huge problem. Wether it's 32gb, 64gb or 128gb i cannot write anything to it. It's not locked. When I copy or try to move any files from internal or micro sd or hard drive to it there is a small moment when it starts to copy then fails at random points. Always left with a small useless file on the sd card.

    Anyone had this issue or any workarounds it?

    Sounds like your dock's SD drive is toast. Here is a utility you can use to verify the cards have not been corrupted:

    If that's the case a cheap card reader should be an adequate workaround. If you want to be sure you get a supported one, get the Asus Extension Kit for the VivoTab, it also has a USB adapter and works with the TF701. But I'm thinking that just any el cheapo with a common chipset will just plug into the dock's USB port and go, plug&play.

    I'd update your firmware though, both dock and tablet.

    I tried with a new card I got yesterday too. Same issue. Just bought a usb card reader to transfer stuff via the usb when needed like pics from my camera.

    I'll try to see if it transfers some movies and stick it back into sd card slot to see if it reads at all with a movie running in the background
