    How can I see my 32gb sd card?

    I popped in my 32gb microSD card this morning just before I accepted the 3.2 update. However, after the reboot I do not seem able ot see the microSD card. When i use ES File Explorer to view my contents, it is only showing me the 32gb on board.

    How do I see the microSD card?

    You'll need a file browser like ES File Explorer or File Explorer HD. Or access it from your PC via the USB cable.

    The path is /mnt/external1

    But check out other threads regarding the inability to write to the card from within the Xoom.

    If you go to "Settings", then "Storage", on the right side of the screen you should now be able to scroll down to see the information about your SD card. As stated above, any file browser app should be able to see it.

    that worked - I can see SD Card with total space of 29.71gb. But I can't seem to see it in a file explorer.

    I did go to /mnt/external1 - if this is the external sd card - how do I tell the capacity?

    I'll have to wait until I am home to try hooking it up to my computer. My work computer is too old and will not connect/read the Xoom.

    goto your settings storage and mount the card it will show you the space on the card; but not much more.

    Its mounted - it must be as it gives me the option to unmount it. Its seeing/accessing it via a file explorer tool. I am using ES File Explorer and can't seem to confirm I am seeing it there and validate an additional 32gb of space available.

    What file explorer are you using? ES File Explorer and File Explorer HD both see the card fine (yes, it is /mnt/external1 ). Also Astro works fine, apparently, though I don't use it.

    The remaining capacity can be seen quickly in the gauge at the bottom of the list in Settings > Storage (which also has the unmount button to avoid risk of data corruption when removing the card)

    Have you verified the 32GB card works in other computers and shows the full capacity? You *might* be another unfortunate victim of rip-off SD cards.
