I've bought my first android (Cubot C7) and found my way around hints and tips on here to get my GG sim up and running (Thanks to the tech bods for their help), unfortunately loads of features on the phone wouldn't work until I add an SD card... I have now bought a Micro SD and fitted it snugly in the TF slot. Alas, the phone doesn't see it! With the help of the SD Adapter that came with the card, I've checked it in my desktop PC and it works fine. Can anyone suggest what I may be doing wrong? Or why it's not recognised in the phone?

The second (replacement) phone arrived with even more faults than the first. It went back to the supplier and I insisted on a full refund because "it wasn't fit for purpose".  I'm looking for something better now.

Phone spec says up to 32gb microSD so I've bought 32gb. Using the SD adapter I have formated the card on my desktop PC but the phone still won't see it. I did notice that the card's system is FAT32 should it be NTFS in an android phone? I've never seen options to purchase system varients on SD cards.  Naturally the phone has to be turned off and the battery removed every time the SD card it put in or taken out. The phone menu says "Mount an SD card" I assume that simply means put it in the slot, or am I missing something?

Apparently the phone may be at fault Smiley Sad It's on it's back to the store for a replacement. Thanks for all your suggestions but I'll try again when the new phone arrives lol
