    Unhappy How do I format the sd micro card onn my Xoom?

    I have a xoom updated to 3.2. I bought a Sandisk 16gb card so I could load up some movies. My laptop sees the card and I was able to download my movies. None of the video players that I loaded on the xoom can see the movies on the card. The xoom does see the card when I go into settings/storage. I read where the card should be formatted in fat32 but can,t find a way to do this. I tried doing a format through my laptop but that function was not avaiable. Is there a way to format the card directly on the xoom? Also my card is a class 4 that should be able to handle movie files and my movies are in h264, mp4 and work fine off of the main drive. Thanks.

    Is your Xoom rooted or stock? I had to use this program to get my 32gb card recognized by the Xoom and you are correct - fat32.

    Hi ggrant,

    My xoom is not rooted, just stock. I downloaded the program and it does see the card with the xoom attached. Laptop still sees the card but the formatting program does not. It's frustrating.

    I'm sorry, you will need a card reader and format it in your PC.

    Yeah, I was thinging of going that way also. Odd that they don't have a format function on the xoom itself. I still love the machine, it's just a little tough love. Thanks.
