    I have a Samsung Galaxy TAB 4 (7" version) and it is NOT allowing me to use the MicroSD card (32GB). This MicroSD is a known GOOD memory card and has even been re-formatted in my tablet. I cannot create folders nor can I copy ANY data to this card! I have tried via the tablet (various file manager programs) as well as when connected to my my laptop (Windows 8). I KNOW there are supposed security issues with the latest android OS (I am running 4.4.2 on the tablet - same version as on my Samsung Galaxy S3 phone). The same issue existed on my phone, but once plugged into my computer, I was able to transfer ANYTHING. I cannot copy ANYTHING to the TABLET!

    On the computer, as soon as I try to create a folder I receive this error:
    "The new folder could not be created in this location. The device has either stopped responding or has been disconnected"

    Have you activated usb debugging on your tablet? It should be listed user system settings, developer options.

    I'm aware of that, but they are similar enough. Perhaps developer options hasn't been enabled on your device yet. Go into system settings, about phone, scroll down to build number and tap on it about 7-10 times. This should enable developer options on your device. Turn it on and usb debugging should be contained within.
    This may not solve your problem, I'm simply throwing out suggestions to try and help. Good luck!

    When you plug your device into your pc, you should show some options similar to this.
    [​IMG] Do you have it connected as a camera or media device? (It should be set a media device)
    Also, have you tried rebooting both devices? Have you tried a different usb cable?
    If this is already the case then I'm at a loss. Hopefully someone else will have a few suggestions.

    Yes I have media device and camera as the only two options and have tried both (both were there from the start -before the debug mode). Also yes I obviously tried rebooting both devices. I am a desktop tech of ten plus years so obviously I tried all standard methods. Again, the same issue was on my phone (galaxy s3) for performing tasks direct on phone but once connected to my pc I was able to do anything I needed. This does not work on the galaxy TAB 4... I am hoping someone else can give me advanced methods to get this working.

    Sorry, I wasn't trying to imply you didn't know what you were doing, simply trying to help going off the information in your OP. Good luck, hopefully someone will have an answer for you.

    I don't believe this device recognizes your SDcard properly! This has been a known issue on older Samsung devices! It could be many factors as to why it is not detecting it properly!

    The first step is can you please go into your \ Settings \ More \ Storage \

    Scroll down and take a screenshot of the SD card portion so we can see what the OS sees??
