    I sorta have the same problem, came from the tbolt also. I have my pics and music, but i can't put anything or get anything from the sd card. I can't put the necessary file on it to achieve root either! Any1 know a fix???

    You most likely need to use a 3rd party file manager. The stock file manager only reads the internal sd card. Your stuff will be located in extSdCard

    That's not true. I bought a new card for my S3 and the stock app sees both cards. It is a long work around, but I would copy all the stuff you want to keep to your computer, then fdisk the card, then format. Stick it in the S3 and then copy your stuff back onto it.
