    How to get SD card recognized?

    Trying to download Astro but it does not recognize my SD card. It is in there. Did I mount it incorrectly or what? Please advise.

    you don't need a SD card to download/install apps, all my apps are on my 8gb internal memory
    save my sd card for backups, music, photos

    can stock file explorer see SD Card?

    Did you mount the card when you installed it?

    Not sure (probably means "no"). It is a company issued device. How do I do that please?

    Menu>Settings>Storage>SD card. It might say "Format" if the card is new. Press that (assuming you have nothing on it) and it will be mounted after formatting. If it's an old card it'll be "Mount."

    And when you're going to remove it, press "Unmount" before removing.

    Thanks. After I get it mounted how can I see what is on it?

    Mount and unmount states are not saved between reboots. The SD card is mounted when the system boots up and is (obviously) unmounted on system shutdown; it's a software state, and it's not persistent.

    An unformatted card, obviously, cannot be mounted.

    You can use a file manager app like Astro.

    Yeah that's right. It sounds like the card was unformatted.
